Oh Dang

Ok, so there's this thing.  When life is boring, I don't feel much like blogging.  When life is busy, I don't have time.  Such is life.  No apologies; I've just been busy living.  And apparently Blogger got a redesign while I was away. I'm not sure how I feel about it (I'm always skeptical of changes to my favorite techthings) but it seems fine? I guess? It more closely resembles the new look of Google's products, which I find kind of annoying (too blocky, too much white space), but oh well. It works.  Anyway...

There are lots of things in the pipeline (aka in my brain) that I want to blog about, and hopefully I'll actually get to it one of these days.  To give you an idea of what's been going on:

  • We went to Yosemite and saw the record-high water levels. Definitely will blog about this later.
  • We went camping at Sardine Lake over 4th of July weekend - highly recommended!
  • I hired a team of designers at work, and am currently in the midst of a crazy (awesome) office redesign project. 
  • My lemon tree pot is growing these little weeds, but they're so pretty I don't have the heart to pull them out. The flower pot is a quarter dead, but I keep forgetting to pull out the dead parts. My herb garden seems a little unhappy, but I don't know what to do. This probably deserves a whole blog post.
  • Will is leaving a week from Thursday for a 3.5 week hike (he's doing the John Muir Trail).
  • I am leaving a week from Thursday for BlogHer in San Diego. I'm way excited, but I feel like I haven't really started preparing yet. I did make some "these will do for now" business cards though.
  • My friend Nick is working on a gorgeous new blog design for this little space. Stay tuned!
  • And oh yeah, we signed a lease! Pictures below.  We move in a week, so, yeah. Things are a little nuts!

I have much to blog about, and I'm sure I've forgotten a thing or two, but I felt like it was time for a little update. Things are going to be crazy around here for the next 6 weeks or so, but I'll try to get back into regular blogging? Maybe? I'll try to try? We'll see?


  1. A new blog design? A new office design? A new apartment!?! *sigh* you're getting new digs all around.

  2. The flooring is incredible in that place - awesome!!

  3. busy busy busy, eh? :) such exciting changes though!

  4. So cool!!!! How did you make that last floorplan? Looks very professional :)

  5. Thanks! It was a much darker stain (almost as dark as the walls in the
    living/dining room) before, but they sanded it and re-stained it about a
    week ago!

  6. so busy my head is spinning. I might need a mental health day.

  7. I used - super easy to use!

  8. I don't know how you organize your time so well.  I am currently re-modeling a great foreclosure I bought.  I am doing a complete cosmetic makeover, thank goodness the structure was sound.  I am also trying my hand at
    internet marketing and find myself writing this at 11:30 EST with no idea when I am going to get some sleep.  And by the way, I do all this and work as a paramedic at a 24/48 schedule.  Maybe I just don't have enough time for everything.  By the way, Your hardwood floors look great!

  9. Your new apartment is so absolutely gorgeous it makes my braincase explode. I am so happy for you!

  10. Thanks, lady! I'm so excited for you to help me warm it in ONE WEEK!
