All the Things

Because I can’t think of a better title for this post. Considering how much has happened since the last time I posted (Uh, when WAS that exactly?) and so much continues to happen NON-STOP, ALL THE THINGS.

Places I’ve visited:

– Chicago for a wedding (Andrew’s cousin, who was adorable. Oh, and I happened to spend an entire weekend with all of Andrew’s family. What? We survived. It was amazeballs.)

– LA/San Diego for BlogHer. It was my first time in California and I loved it! Flew into LA to see Jenn, and we had the most epic road trip to San Diego, followed by a fun weekend at BlogHer, full of meeting new friends and lots of swag. I also got to see.meet Trista, a woman I’ve adored for nearly 7 years now, and it was awesome.

– Philly to see JOURNEY IN CONCERT with Katie and Kate. ‘Nuf said.

Things, and life, and stuff

Things have been pretty amazing this summer. A COMPLETE turn-around from last summer. (Seriously amazing) It was kind of crazy beginning a full-time freelance career during the SUMMER OF TRAVEL but I’ve made it work. Everything has calmed down to the point where I’m caught up with work and I’m no longer at my computer 12-13 hours a day. But I’m still checking email,  etc, right as I wake up.

Oh, we have a new bundle of joy.

Yup, I’m officially a cat lady now. Internets, meet Layla, the crazy kitty that’s made my life even better. Once I decided that I would be at home all day for work, I needed a furbaby. I fell in love with her at first sight. She is just too precious for words.

Wedding planning is still going on. I may have had a tiny panic attack earlier tonight when Andrew & I started talking about making the guest list since we’ll be sending out Save the Dates in a couple of months. My maid of honor and my amazing bridesmaids are keeping me sane during the planning. We do have a date, and a couple of locations in mind. The theme is set, the dress has been found and we’re halfway there. I foresee a panic attack every 3 months between now & then though.

There is a lot happening with the projects I’m working on, and hopefully, now that work is stable, I will have more time to write over at PQ Productions (Expect a post or two this week).

I’ve added more pictures to Etsy, and made one of my favorite prints available as a canvas. Check it out!

I’m on StumbleUpon now so if you’re on there, follow me! I share more stuff on there than Twitter lately.

I’m also part of this incredible project called Uno Kudo with super creative and talented people so you should like the FB page because it’s going to be a big deal, I promise.

And I leave you with this.

How have YOU been?

    CHICAGO IS FOLLOWING ME. Seriously, every where I turn some one is blogging about Chicago and it keeps reminding me that I’m not there and not on vacation anymore. 🙁

    I’m glad your summer went well, however. And omg, the kitty. SO. CUTE.

      Awww, I’m sorry! That’s how I feel about Seattle 🙂

      Yeah, the kitty is too precious for words, except when she’s climbing on my face as I work 🙂

    gaaah, wedding planning. i do not remember that fondly, and not because the marriage broke up. i really did enjoy my wedding day. but planning it? god, it was the WORST. just know that at the end of all of this, you’ll have this really amazing party to celebrate the joining of your life to the man you love. hopefully that’ll help keep you sane-ish through it all!

      Yeah, that’s the only thing keeping me sane because once it’s here, the party will be A-MAHZING.

    I’m sorry, the only thing I can say is KITTEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
    Because furbabies make me stupid.

      Hahaha, it’s OK. That is the ONLY proper way to react to that picture.
