Hey, how was your week? I’ve been feeling that pre-birthday drive kick in that makes me want to wrap up a lot of loose ends. Just made a list of what I want to accomplish over the next year, bought accounting software, handed off all my receipts to my mom (she’s the assistant over at Branch and is whipping us into shape!), cleaned my office and got new tires (gotta hit the road for the Mt. Angel Oktoberfest this weekend!).
I threw on a t-shirt and jeans for a weekend walk through Reed College with Joey and Rocky, not even realizing I’d be in the midst of some urban camo. I love it when that happens!
The campus is so beautiful. I love hanging out there during the summer when it’s super quiet. This view reminds me of the venue I just taught at in Amsterdam!
Yesterday I did a little exploring — there’s a really great perfume shop here in Portland that has the most exquisite, rarest scents. I thought this packaging was especially cool…and it reminds me of Gala.
Elle is the one magazine subscription I’ll never, ever give up. The September issues are always the most fun to flip through.
I’ve passed by this hand-painted sign hundreds of times and finally stopped yesterday to take a picture to share with you. Isn’t it great?!
And with that, I’m signing off. Branch developer Star is in town, I’ve gotta get crackin’ on the design of Gala’s first book and my dad is taking me out to dinner at Gustav’s tonight (yes, my obsession with all things German runs deep).
P.S. Chubs is doing really well! In some funny news, a few days ago he took off from my office and I was searching everywhere for him…only to walk into my room where he was casually chillin’ on my pillow! King of the mountain!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
