“We ate well and cheaply and drank well and cheaply and slept well and warm together and loved each other.”And something just stuck. I thought about those words, "well" and "cheaply," what they mean and how they mirror the way I like to live my life. Cheap can still mean good quality. It can mean simple, just like the way Hemingway writes his sentences.
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
And although my blog's name is after a quote from some would say, the quintessential male writer, I thought I'd use these pictures for my smart girls post of the week, because I love the women in the above photo. Hemingway wrote A Movable Feast while he was living in Paris with his first wife Hadley Richardson. The other woman in the photo is Duff Twysden who is the model for the character Brett Ashley in The Sun Also Rises (which I just downloaded on audible and am currently obsessed with.)
