Life Lately

August 20, 2013


Hello, friends! I’m in go-mode, catching up at Braid after a long weekend hanging out with my brother and Jeremy in New York. The photos above were taken at 30,000 feet both leaving and returning home. The clouds on the left made me hungry for cotton candy. The more moody clouds on the right made me feel like I was on psychedelics. The iPhone photo hardly does it justice. It’s funny because I boarded each plane agitated by the TSA but became completely grateful for the view once I was in the sky.

I’ll be sharing more bits and pieces from that adventure throughout the week but for now I thought I’d pop in and share a little bit of what I’ve been up to lately:

+ Tara and I are writing a book on branding for creatives! It’s in the preliminary phases of production + pitching but we’re so excited for the opportunity and potential. We were approached by a publisher in London – I took it as a sign that it’s probably something we need to do.
+ I’m having THE ultrasound today. We will be finding out if this little bean is a boy or a girl but we’re keeping it a secret from even ourselves until Saturday when we can share the results with our whole families. Regardless, I’m anxious to see this little bebe for the first time since our first ultrasound at 9 weeks.
+ I’ve been wearing an UP Band by Jawbone for a solid week per Laura’s recommendation (I got it in grey). It’s SO fascinating to see and track my movement, sleep patterns, and consumption.  It may or may not be a glorified pedometer / iPhone app but it’s holding me accountable for my health in a really great way (especially since having to slow down my typical fitness routine).
+ My whole house is in serious transition right now. Since the Braid office moved to it’s own space we’ve been slowly but surely rearranging and redecorating our space. It’s a pretty clear metaphor for the transition I’m going through in my own life right now, as well.
+ I’m looking forward to Designer VACA in Palm Springs. I can’t wait to see my old friends and make new ones! (Holler at me if you’re going!)
+ I need a good book to read. I tend to like non-fiction and memoirs. Any recommendations?

I’ll be back tomorrow with more from New York and a new maternity series post on Thursday. In the meantime, let me know what you’ve been up to lately. What’s got you inspired? XO
