What a week! Sometimes real life sucks up internet time but that should be welcomed. Live a little! A lot can happen in seven days. I helped my grandparents ring in their 63rd wedding anniversary (!), did a shoot late into last night for an upcoming collab, started a branding project that’s totally up my alley, got all the windows in our house replaced (a total pain but necessary) and started the planning process for the launch of a really great project with friends later this year.
I fell a little in love with this magazine cover and cracked up at Mutt’s intern recruit posters.
Last night, after I wrapped up a project I raced over to Mutt Studios for a collaboration & shoot with my photographer friend, Shaun. I skipped, jumped and danced around in spiked shoes and by the end, my legs felt like jello but I love that good kind of tired when you feel like you’ve given it your all for something awesome.
Another peek inside Mutt Studios and perhaps the best branding I’ve ever seen on a food truck.
Over the weekend, a makeup artist was hanging out in our dining room, prepping a model to do a shoot with my brother and she just happened to bring these shoes she’d handpainted with her. Amazing, right?! Psychedelic puff-paint..I’ll take it! Edit: The shoes were customized by Randi Whipple.
When I heard that my grandparents were in town for their 63rd anniversary, I dropped everything and hopped in my cousin’s truck for a joyride out to the suburbs. We found my grandparents in the back of a bar, gambling and sipping mix drinks, true to form at 85 and 83, respectively. Amazing.
To see them so happy and going strong after all this time is extra special because my grandpa, who had never even been to a hospital in his entire life, had a brain aneurysm 2 years ago and there was a good chance he wouldn’t make it through surgery. To be able to dance with him at the local Eagles club over the weekend was a pretty special moment. “Grandpa, I don’t know how to dance! Grandma is soooo much better than me!!!”
The 4th can’t get here soon enough. Looking forward to chillin’, reading a stack of magazines and sitting around at our neighbor’s barbecue. Doesn’t get much better than that. I hope you’re having an awesome weekend!
