disco pants wallpaper + an unfiltered waterfall of thoughts
Found the mother of all retro wallpaper on the house search this weekend. (60s maybe?) Impeccably preserved and pretty awesome.
I am a sucker for trial sizes.
When I check into a hotel, they give me two keys. I immediately lose one and within 30 minutes I lose the other.
There is a jar of buttons rolling around in the trunk of my car.
I love the scent of rain hitting dry pavement.
Why can't I pump my own gas in New Jersey?
I was supposed to meet Jen and Cindy in Manhattan on Sunday, but it didn’t happen. House stuff.
Not worrying about things I can't control at the moment. Not doing it as a consciously chosen mindset (I don't do those) but simply out of necessity. Quite a freeing way to live actually.
NYC gave me a sunny, stunning, sparkling view on takeoff yesterday. Kansas City gave me the reverse upon landing.
Starting on a new book contribution -- all about lettering! Based on current schedule I'll probably be doing this around 2 or 3 in the morning.
Just stocked up on thick, yummy tights for fall: black, grey, maroon, mustard, brown.
This morning I saw someone who looked like Snape pushing a jogging stroller down 7th Street.
The mums outside our house are dead. After it sold I lost interest in maintaining curb appeal.
Someone blew through the toll gate on I-70 yesterday (it wasn’t me). The wretched thing lay on the ground, all a-splinter.
If you saw a stuffed animal fly out of a car this morning in the school dropoff lane, that was me. 5 year old left it in the backseat. No time to get out & return it, so I chucked it out the window, she caught it from the sidewalk, and all was good.
Missing Lawrence already. But excited to start the new life too.
This morning my (normally cantankerous in the morning) artsy girl came downstairs at 6:45 a.m. fully dressed and yawned, “I woke up early so I could doodle before school.” Be still my artsy heart.
