Hi, Everyone! How was your week? Mine has been very low-key since I’m hanging out mostly at home with Chubs, on squirrel sitting duty while Joey is away in LA. It’s quite the contrast from last week when I was running around Vegas, going to shows and working on my video poker skills!
On our last day in Vegas, Kat and I went ring shopping at the Mirage gift shop on a whim. Because, when in Vegas…do the unexpected! I’m not much of a jewelry person but I saw this crazy ring with multicolor enamel and was like, “Why not?” Since I wear mostly black at the office, it’s a nice little boost of color.
My friends over at A-Made just sent over the coolest media kit I’ve ever seen. Mark, who did the branding was my creative director at the last studio I worked at and I love what he’s done with this brand. It’s such a great concept, focusing on selling American-made products to a worldwide audience. Check them out and show them some love!
Chubs is all grown up! It’s crazy to think that he’s 9 months old now. Remember when he was just a teeny tiny baby?
I’ve been slowly but surely easing back into office life after a few weeks away. Things at Branch haven’t slowed down enough for me to share any new work lately (which I’m thankful for!) but I’m hoping that changes soon — we have so much cool stuff that’s been recently completed.
I’m signing off to spend some time with my mom (and visit our new favorite lunch spot, Sen Yai.) Other than that, I’ll be hanging out at home this weekend and chillin’ with Chubs. I’m one of those people who get addicted to being on the go, always wanting to explore and sometimes, I have to stop and remind myself that a quiet week around the house is okay.
It’s okay to take it easy and to be still once in awhile and to give yourself the time and space to think clearly, uninterrupted. On that note, I love this quote:
“It’s the steady, quiet, plodding ones who win in the lifelong race.” —Robert W. Service
Have a great weekend!
