Happy Friday!!! Today is my oldest’s 18th birthday <3. It truly feels like yesterday that we were bringing that little nugget home from the hospital. He’s getting a few extra hugs today. 18. wow.
It’s been a whirlwind here and I haven’t posted much lately but I’ve been working on a few projects that I’ll share soon. Just a few teasers: a new logo and branding design, some fun wood signs, our daughter’s bedroom makeover, and new summer art prints that will be available in my Etsy shop on Monday. My 2019 calendar is in the works too. This will be my 5th year designing calendars and I love, love working on this project. I’m rethinking the design and format for next year – could be a big change. Stay tuned.
So today, I just wanted to share the next in a series I started a few months ago called “Currently”. It seems to be a trend for a lot of bloggers where they give a little overview of some of the things they’re doing right now. Click here to see my first currently post. They’re fun to read because it’s a glimpse into the everyday lives of those we follow. Plus there’s usually lot of useful info in these little snippets and it’s not so staged and intentional. what I realized when I’m doing these posts is that I’m not that interesting. But that’s ok – because I think sharing can be helpful and can spark creativity. And it’s just kinda fun.
carrying – this portable charger.
wearing – I’m loving the jumper/romper trend. I bought this one. I add a jean jacket and converse to make it casual or wedges for a fancier look.
Also, these distressed rockstar jeggings from Old Navy. They’re jeans but slip on like leggings and hold you in in all the right places. ahem. And the rips are cool too. They come in regular, tall and petite. At 5″3″ so I’m in between the petite and regular so I have both, in a few different shades. Did I mention I love them?
loving – My bracelets from Purevida. They come as a set – called style packs – and are a cute and casual way too add style to any outfit. The Coral Riptide set is my favorite and remind me of summertime but they offer lots of different designs. The company is pretty cool too – they provide sustainable jobs to artisans worldwide and raise awareness for charities with products that give back.
reading – I just finished Everything, Everything with my daughter – a good one for teens. Next up is Eleanor Olifant is Completely Fine. Five different women have recommended it to me so it must be good.
listening – 80’s pop channel on Pandora. Mostly when I run – reminds me of the good ole days.
drinking – water, I’m trying. And sangria – this quick recipe is good.
cooking – Overnight Oats. so good.
watching – New Girl and Handmaids Tale. Both are so good – and so different.
waiting for – hot summer beach days…. love them.
shocked at – (???) this.
need to try – these yoga moves for runners. I still love running and try to do it 3-4x a week. But it’s tough on my body. Maybe these yoga moves will help.
Feel free to pick a currently topic and tell me what’s going on with you too! I hope you enjoyed reading my currently’s and have a wonderful weekend!
