Dear my little cinnamon bun,

Thank you for making the brave move from Columbus to DC so that we could meet and fall in love over designer purses and basically all things out of our price range.
I'm so happy you're in my life (omg this is sappy) and that we've grown so close so quickly! Happy birthday and I am sad I'm not there to celebrate. Have the BEST day!!!

...San Francisco

I've had a hilarious obsession with San Francisco for a while. I seriously thought about moving there last spring, just packing up and leaving DC by myself on a crazy adventure. I just have this nagging feeling that I should live there. But then I told my mom the idea and I was somehow convinced to buy a condo...keeping me here for a couple more years. I'm onto her.

The best part? I've never even been there...hah! Well, tomorrow my dream is being realized as I board a plane in the morning with my DREAM destination. I get to galavant around San Fran and then head to Sonoma for a wedding on Saturday! I'll be back next week my loves!

Here's a little wit for your Tuesday.

...settling in

Life is pretty wonderful these days. I'm slowly settling into my new place, organizing and painting and hanging photos. I'm trying out all my new neighborhood restaurants (the crumb cake muffin was breakfast one morning). I spent another day in the letterpress studio getting acquainted with the Vandercook press. Spent a rainy afternoon watching New Girl reruns and eating cookie dough with my favorite person Ashley. Felt sick from eating too much of said cookie dough. Celebrated my guy getting a new job at the Fork & Wrench, and drank gin muddled with strawberries, lemon and lime then topped off with Hoegaarden while out with friends Saturday night. And then felt the need to instagram all of it.

...pictures leaning on shelves

I've decided this is what I want to do over my living room couch and my desk in my bedroom. Then I can easily swap out photos and little tchotchkes (best word ever).

...polka dots

Wondering why I don't own a polka dot tshirt. And a fuchsia belt for that matter.

...type crush Tuesday

Chalkboard typography - I would say obsessed is an understatement. The bistro restaurant, chalkboard, hand drawn typography that is happening now is phenomenal. There is definitely a time and a place for it, but on both these magazine covers, it works!

...kendi everyday

Full disclosure: I have a huge girl crush on blogger Kendi Everyday. She has great style, opened her own clothing store earlier this year, and is just an adorable hilarious blogger. These are some of my recent favorite outfits of hers, check out her blog for more!

Babies. It has been one long mother effing week. Hopefully I don't have to work late tonight and can get my weekend started on time. This includes MORE painting, hopefully the last of it, maybe some pool time, and a bit of freelance! Then I am super excited for another opportunity to delve into letterpress by learning to use a whole new machine (the scary Vandercook) on Sunday.

Hope your weekends are wonderful! 

ps. I'm totally team Anderson. Do these teams still exist?

...wedding invites

I had the awesome honor of designing and letterpressing Kathleen's wedding invitations earlier this year and was crazy excited (like grinning by myself at my desk) when I saw a blog post by her photographer. 

As part of the invite/reply card package I designed a monogram for them that she used all over the wedding in the cutest ways ever. Go check out all the photos for yourself, her wedding was gorgeous! 

The wedding photographer is Katelyn James and all photos belong to her!

...type crush Tuesday - inspirational posters

As I become obsessed with finding fun, quirky art to display in my new digs I seem to be most attracted to typographic posters (and they all seem to be annoyingly optimistic). I want to hang all of these in the bathroom so I can be in a good mood every morning!

...pops of unexpected color

I spent my weekend painting my living room a light gray called "subtle touch," seeing these images makes me want to bring some bright colors in, and I'm excited to start searching for some bright accessories!

...being back in the blogisphere

I'm back babies!!

I've had a nice break, but I missed blogging. Two weeks after moving in, I finally finished unpacking most everything. This weekend I paint! Navy and gray...surprising I know. 

Next week I'll get back to my regularly scheduled programming, but for now, have a great weekend!
