Hello from the trenches! I’m stopping in to quickly wish you an awesome weekend and share a few bite-sized moments of my week before I head back to proofing Rock n Roll Bride Magazine and finalizing the last of the design including the cover and spine. We just wrapped up the new branding that premiers on the cover and to be honest, it’s all a little nerve-wracking. This behemoth of a project that has lived in the confines of my office for the last two months hits the presses on Tuesday and lands in people’s mailboxes and newsstands shortly after that.
What I’ve learned though is that fear is not an option — it’s a mechanism that can protect us from harm but also holds us back from our biggest potential.
There are days when I still feel scared. Am I doing this right? “This” meaning my job, relationships, everything. And then I remember that there is no right way. There is no rule book. You just have to give whatever you do your all and hope for the best.
Early mornings call for a little flash to liven things up like gold sneakers. These are my power shoes and make me feel like I can accomplish anything!
This cover still wows me, 11 years later. I’ve always held onto it like a prized possession, feeling that it was more of a piece of fine art than anything.
Ah, this girl. We’ve been through so much together and no matter what, we always end our nights together with a glass of wine and great conversations. When we’re not together, goofy emails stand in. I’m so proud of the work we’ve been able to create together over the years.
I was talking to Joey about how I’m not big on collecting stuff because it just feels like clutter to me but the one thing I will never part with is my collection of magazines. Long live print!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! I’m heading off to a fair with my dad to eat bad food, go on fast rides and unwind in a land far away from my office. Feels like the perfect summer weekend! xo
