eighty five degrees

after a short hiatus, i'm back!

the last two weekends have been working weekends with me getting sick in between! i kept beating myself up for being exhausted when in reality i had every right to be tired. sometimes we discredit ourselves for the environments we are placed in. while going to nyc might sound like the ultimate dream work trip, there were a lot of aspects that were draining (two back to back nine hour participation intensive workshops, for example). 

today i get a day off to recover and i also get one on friday (spoiled...) but i do really need them. if we don't take care of ourselves, things go south very quickly. 

moving on.

it has been unseasonably warm in texas. even by texas standards, it's unusual to be 87ยบ in february.

i love it.

i really do not like cold weather and spring may be my favorite season. there's something about the month of april where you can almost taste summer, but it's not quite there yet. in san antonio, april means fiesta where the city is bombarded with color, warmth, and fun.

all this to say, the warm weather inspired me to make a playlist. here's my dreaming of summer playlist for your listening ears:

let me know what you think! now, off to read harry potter for the rest of the day.



yikes. that just about sums up how i feel right now. i've been struggling with a lot of anxiety about my future job, a lot of restless nights, a lot of unexplained frustration, and i'm exhausted. i hope you haven't been feeling this way too, but if so, i'm sorry.

with that said, let's start anew on monday! promise. i'm just not feeling inspired this week and think that next week we will all be in better spirits.


36 days of type

sorry i'm a little behind! i caught an awful stomach bug in new york and have been out sick.

about a year ago i followed @36daysoftype which is an account that invites designers for 36 days to create letter (or number) that can be reposted by the account. i love this project and think it's a unique way to inspire others and give an ongoing project with a task as simple as a letter of the alphabet. i also love how it perfectly fosters my love of getting lost in a rabbit hole of beautiful things.

today was the beginning and here are my favorite submissions from the letter A. follow along and enjoy! maybe i'll submit something?! all images courtesy of @36daysoftype
