It’s been one of those weeks — you know, the ones where you barely leave the house?! Even as recently as a year ago, I used to completely dread weeks like this but after doing so much traveling (Austin, Cannon Beach, Santorini, Mykonos, London and New York in the last month and a half alone), I actually look forward to waking up and having to be absolutely nowhere.
While I’ve been home, there hasn’t actually been any downtime though. I spent the week revamping my digital portfolio and clocking in at close to 25 projects, there was a lot to get through. Though I’ve shared a majority of the projects before and it all worked perfectly fine, I’ve always felt that “good enough just isn’t good enough.” I wanted everything to be larger in scale, to show more uses and to have a more consistent, polished feel. And, though it took 4 straight 12 hour days to get through, it feels so good to be done! I’ll share the results next week.
September is a good month around here — my birthday was the 14th, Joey’s is the 24th and sandwiched in between was our anniversary on the 17th. We like to knock everything out at once! Of course, no anniversary is complete without a few silly photobooth rounds after a few celebratory drinks. Cheers to three years!
On Monday, the travel starts up again. I head off to LA for some client meetings and in preparation, I’ve been digging through 10 years of magazine tears for an editorial project I’m going to be working on. I must have 500 pages saved in my flat files and having those physical references is so valuable. For as long as I live, I will continue investing in books and magazines!
And with that, I’m signing off to conquer a big to-do list before my LA trip. Have an amazing weekend, everyone. I’ll be back next week to share the inside scoop of what I’ve been working on business-wise behind the scenes. xo
