holiday break

December 20th, 2013


I wanted to say hello and goodbye before I (and a most of the blogging world) take next week off for Christmas. I’ll actually be working most of the week on a big project, but a quieter internet will be so helpful. This morning I woke up to an ongoing, week-long grumpy attitude largely thanks to having an incredibly slow work month, putting me into a bit of a panic about money and “omg I’ll never work again” thoughts, which is so stupid because every December is slow for business for me, and everything always falls into place just when I start to panic. I did some yoga, ran some errands in the crisp sunshine, and stared at the bottle of bourbon I bought for us to enjoy this evening when I had a solution to my freelance blues. Cue some dance music and everything is right again.

I’ll be back before we head into the new year with a best of 2013 music list and shortly after my new year’s resolutions, but I just want to take this moment to thank you guys. This blog has lost a lot of readers this year, thanks to my own negligence and a general lack of a ton of blog reading on the internet everywhere, and I so appreciate those of you that have stuck around while I evolve and grow, and sometimes just stay right where I am. I’ve always firmly believed in quality over quantity, and you are no exception, friends. Have a lovely holiday if you celebrate, see you in a week.

Every morning until around 9am the corner of my office is sprinkled with rainbows, thanks to this little prism I bought after seeing one Lauren has. At first I tried to hang it somewhere that I could enjoy rainbows all day with, but discovered that you can’t have magic like that all the time or it loses its specialness (and also makes you kind of nauseated.)

    having avoided blogs for the past month or so, out of some weird combination of avoidance and inability to sign into blogger without signing out of my business gmail account (SO ANNOYING GOOGLE PLS FIX THIS), it’s nice to come back to the one blog that always inspires me + gives me a little boost of awesome. i know we’re all about IG now (let’s be serious), but it’s so nice to have a little corner of coolness on the internet that can be sought out when needed, i think. ANYWAY. thanks for not quitting us! ;)

    ps. totally had no idea about the new war on drugs album…and i am BEYOND excited about that! also, have you heard the new frankie rose?!!? ‘heaven’ is just killing me! (and if you’re feeling like a super-synthy throwback, le cassette’s song ‘arms of mine’ is the best 80s song written this side of the millennium, in my opinion.)

    pps. MERRY CHRISTMAS!! and all the best in 2014. :D

    Happy Holidays. I have enjoyed all of your music posts and your wedding was lovely! Here are some of my favorite songs from 2013 – many at your suggestion!

    A lot of blogs have fizzled a bit this year. Everyone seems to be on instagram….or they have switched over to a ton of sponsored posts.
