Zara

I love Zara. The next time I have a little money to spend, I’m going to order a few pieces. Although, shopping online never seems to work for me. And no, I don’t know why my “dots” look like “commas.”

New Blog Design

Hello pals, readers, friends and family! I’ve changed the look of my blog a bit. Now you can tweet out my posts, contact me through a contact form and hopefully comment a bit easier. I wanted something more flexible & interactive (and pretty soon I’ll be adding my portfolio to display within this site completely). Hurray for everything in one spot! My RSS feed and all that jazz stays completely the same but if you’re reading this in an RSS reader, you probably can’t see the lovely new design, eh? If you notice any kinks, mishaps or weird errors please let me know by commenting or emailing me! It’s all a work in progress. Keep your eyes out for more writing and a few fun features coming up soon.

Happy Anniversary

Today is our 2nd wedding anniversary!

I Like Your Type

Found on Vintage Me Oh My. Here and here.

Local Goodness

I’m currently collaborating with Rachel over at Hounds in the Kitchen. We’re creating her soon-to-be-amazing logo and for payment? Local goodness for the next five months.

The Burning House

I recently came across The Burning House and I was instantly sucked in. I clicked, read, and soaked in all the posts in one sitting. Anyone can submit their photo/illustration to depict exactly what they would take with them. The site explains,

“If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.”
The photo below (and the caption that went along with it) especially stuck out to me.

“My house burned to the ground in 1977, lost everything.  I learned that material possessions are unimportant.  However, in a pinch I would take the hard drive and Horus and leave everything else.  Am about to get a safe deposit box to keep an extra hard drive in so I would just take Horus and come back and dig the tektite out of the ashes.  Word to all the folks with big piles of stuff:  You have way less time than you think.”

Makes you think, huh?

The Perfect Summer Bracelet

It’s true, I’ve found the perfect summer bracelet. I snagged one of Kate’s lovely bracelets and I absolutely love it! Be sure to check out her blog and shop and hopefully you can snag one too! (I think I used the word “snag” one too many times.)

Well Done, Jeni’s.

I love Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams‘ new website design. If you only visit Columbus to experience Jeni’s…it would be worth it. You can also buy pints and get them delivered to your door! My new favorite seasonal flavor is Rhubarb and Lime Cardamom Yogurt.

Daily Occurrences

A day-to-day look at what I do everyday. I go to work (not pictured) I workout, we make dinner, I sit at my messy desk and design. Oh and I get to hang out with the cutest pup ever. I have about 10 shots left on my Canon A-1. I’ll probably get the film developed on Sunday or Monday. I can’t wait to see how the roll turns out!
