Bits Of My Weekend

August 15th, 2011

pool dip
dog blur
new york style
soda fun
good friends
little gibson tuck
a good gum rub
korean short ribs
asian feast
a neighborhood walk | first swim of the summer | dog blur | that California light | lemon tree | NYC-style pizza | retro soda | a wonderful gift | a little gibson tuck | a good face rub | an Asian feast with good friends

This weekend I felt the inspiration and creativity that had been drained from me in the past year flood back into me. I’m not sure exactly what caused it as there’s been so much change lately in my life, but everything feels like it’s settling into such a good place, and that feels amazing. I may be a few bucks shorter, but necessary resourcefulness makes me feel accomplished. It also felt like the first real weekend of summer to me, with a pool dip and a night of eating a feast under the stars with friends.

    I am loving your site redesign; it looks fantastic! It makes the pictures look better somehow. I am especially salivating over that pizza.

    Isn’t that the greatest feeling, when you get your creative force back? Especially when it’s unexpected. I feel like I’m the verge of that myself, and I’m trying to induce it, sort of like labor :-)

    Hi Erin – I didn’t cook it, so I couldn’t tell you!

    What a gorgeous scarf!
    It’s not a great feeling when you’re not feeling the creativity “flow” within you. Glad it was just temporary and that’s back again!

    Oooh love your new redesign – saw it all tiny on Bloglovin and couldn’t wait to see it in full. Also loving the colors in that scarf and your pretty hair!

    Kate, your redesign is so beautiful! I love the new colors and the fancy-shmancy new logo. I know what you mean about getting your creativity back, mine has slowly come back this month and it feels so good.

    Your new scarf is stunning! What a nice send-off from your former co-workers. Thanks for passing on the Gibson tutorial, I really liked her cute video. The style is so pretty on you.

    Leninade makes me giggle.

    Whoa…hello redesign. Nice!
    p.s. I used to wear my hair like this ALL the time when it was long. I thought I just made it up as a way to wear my hair up (not in a ponytail) What was key for me it that since my hair is so fine it actually stayed up since I just pinned the bobby’s into the hair and pony. Gosh, I’m always wordy over here. Sorry.

    As a Korean I can attest to the effing goodness of Korean short ribs. I’m glad you got to experience some, assuming you hadn’t before!
