Getting Ready

I keep thinking of things to write about, and then the moment I sit down to actually write something, my mind goes blank. This can probably be attributed to the fact that I feel pulled in a million different directions, which is stupid, because it’s mostly in anticipation of all the holiday related stuff I’m […]

TGIM?

I had a great holiday weekend. Somehow David and I magically split our time with our respective families in a way that was both even and super fun, and I got most of my holiday shopping done (now onto my holiday making..) and we even got to catch up with some out of town friends. […]

Things I Am Thankful For

Thanksgiving is one of my top two holidays. (The other is the 4th of July) I love everything about it – family coming together, delicious foods, chilly weather, the Macy’s parade, pumpkin stuff – but I especially love that it is a holiday focused on being grateful. David and I were having a.. lively discussion.. […]

Chasing Squirrels

Well, today got away from me. Please enjoy this video of my dog running at the dog park. The joy in his face as he races by is priceless. Caspian Running

Housekeeping

The best/worst thing about my new design life is the complete freedom and flexibility of schedule. At first, I thought that would mean that I have total control over what I do, and I guess I do, to an extent, but I’m slowly coming to realize that this job doesn’t allow flexibility of schedule so […]

Just Do It: A Champion Procrastinator’s Tale

I think thank you notes are really important. I was raised to write them, and I believe that if you are a polite and decent person, you will write thank you notes after being receiving a gift, staying at someone’s home or otherwise accepting some sort of big favor. That being said, I SUCK at […]

It’s Beginning To Feel A Lot Like… November

So funny story… Remember how I talked about how Daylight Savings Time totally screwed up my exercise schedule? Well, David and I decided to try to walk in the mornings sometimes instead. This was a big deal for me, because I hate waking up early, and I hate being cold. I thought that at least […]

Holiday Cards Are Here!

It’s finally here.. the moment I am sure all of you have been waiting for with bated breath:   Holiday cards hold a special place in my heart, since they were the first things I stocked in my shop almost a year ago. What a year it’s been! My cards this year feature a mix […]

Blur

That’s what this weekend was. It was so packed full of fun activities – my cousin’s couples shower, my best friend’s birthday party, dinner at David’s parents’ house, hanging out with babies, going on walks, catching up with family – but good lord am I glad to be home, and finally have a moment to […]

Lucky

It has been a crazy week. On paper, it sounds idyllic – I spent the week at home, working on my holiday card line + some other assorted projects, and each evening David and I had some sort of commitment – but in reality it felt like I was constantly late, flying from one thing […]
