Pinspiration | Hola, Beaches.

Today I’m wrapping up a (much-needed) life break and heading back to home after a week in Denver. (Are you impressed that I still managed to have my shit together enough to keep posts coming while I was away? Me. Too.)

I know that a week away from my job should be enough, but I’m already dreaming of my next vacation. So, do I finally achieve that goal of traveling somewhere alone? Perhaps, but in all honesty my heart is set on a beach with no cell reception. Anyone interested in sharing some sunscreen? Warning: I go SPF 50+ on a cloudy day.

The Tao of Taylor Swift

Full disclosure: I once wrote that, perhaps, I was prepared for a Taylor Swift backlash. At the time, the entertainment gossip world was agog with long walks around Brooklyn with Jake Gyllenhaal and analyzing lyrics for references to Joe Jonas. We’d go on to speculate about Taylor with John Mayer, Harry Styles, and even a Kennedy! (I couldn’t have been the only one to find her annoying, could I?)

Now that Taylor hath returned, I’ve come to a realization – I actually really like her.

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

Is it just me, or are we becoming increasingly willing to celebrate the little things in life? Hats. Mustard. Bald people. My calendar tells me that today is National Handwriting Day. Yes, apparently that, too, is a thing.

We talked about my love of letter writing just last week. If I had known that drawing words with flair instead of simply writing them with my pen was remotely related to a career, I might have chosen a different path in life. That’s it. I’m taking a hand lettering Skillshare class just as soon as I finish all that coding
