hi there. how’s your friday going? i like this sunburned toast.
i’m on a plane to atlanta for one of my high school best friend’s wedding. i haven’t seen some of my friends in years, so i’m excited to dress up and have some fun with everyone!
my birthday is next week (aquarius, holla). 29 seems like such a strange age. but maybe it’s because i’m not a fan of odd numbers. but i’m just going to embrace it. i know i’ve talked a little bit about single life here on the blog. i gotta say, i finally feel like i’m adjusting to it and enjoying it. for a few months there, i felt a little anxious for all those stupid cliche reasons…”what if i don’t find someone? is every good guy taken? what if i’m single for years! everyone is married with kids except me.” i know, it’s pretty silly to write it out, but that IS what i thought for a while. i’d like to think i don’t feel very pressured to have kids and get married right away, but the older you get, it’s like someone shoves those thoughts in your brain whether you want them or not.
but now, i feel comfortable living alone. i go on dates and if there’s chemistry, awesome, and if not, oh well. i’ve been putting way less weight on it and feeling a lot better. i figure if i do meet someone special, this is my only time to live it up and be single. so i might as well make it enjoyable. do tell, what made you single transition easier? as a relationship kinda gal, it was definitely something i had to learn to like…
anyway, i’m going to be in new york with friends this month art directing this proctor & gamble beauty event. i’m excited to see this 3 month project actually come to life and spend some time in that awesome city. we rented a big house in brooklyn for us to all stay/work in. can’t wait!
PS. for those of you interested in the JOBS at designlovefest and blogshop, a little update… we hired a blogshop social media manager for blogshop, found a photographer for a designlovefest weekly column, and hired a few interns in NYC for that beauty event. we are STILL on the hunt for our new managing editor (runs 2 columns on DLF, handles emails and submissions, takes part of the creative process, helps with workshops etc.) see the job listing here. give us a shout if you’re interested. we’ll be hiring in february!
a habit of mine in january is looking back at my old goals and seeing how many of them came true. it’s fun to see how i’ve grown in business and as a person. it’s also fun to see how we stay the same. i go back and read my old posts and smile as i think to myself “gosh, you sounded so young.” and other times “man, nothing has changed there.”
back in 2010 i was very stoked on life with this list. i’m proud to say i made a lot of these 2013 goals happen. and these too. (i guess i looooved goal making in 2013. but i was also realistic here.) last year, i got very real here. and admitted to working too much here. (something i’ve gotten much better at!) and now it’s time for my 2015 list.

i’ve always been really terrible at going to the grocery store. i don’t know why, i just always procrastinate or get busy and end up either eating out or cooking canned beans and brown rice for every meal. so when a friend of mine told me that WHOLE FOODS DELIVERS…my eyes lit up. i’ve already done it a few times and it’s amazing. pick what you want online and it’s at your front door in 1-2 hours. (seriously, this is not a sponsored post, it just saves me tons of time and figured you should know! especially with the holidays coming up.) the first time it’s free and then it’s a super low minimum after that. very worth it! and they save your order so that the next time you can easily re-order your items.
