Just saw these drawings on the Kate Spade website – a different way to showcase clothes and accessories on a retail site. (If anyone knows who the illustrator is, please let me know!) I like looking through the Kate Spade blog once in awhile for image ideas.

Sometimes it’s nice to put up a new image here–just ’cause. This was snapped on lunch some time last week. The weather here has been great. Not too hot, not too cool.
Tomorrow is Thursday already. The week really goes by quite fast these days. Taxes are finally submitted. Tonight, I’m finally getting around to making some more zucchini-potatoe soup for BK that I’ve been meaning to do since the weekend. I’d like to get around to buying a new pair of sandals, and new shades (broke my sunglasses last week just when it was getting sunny!)
Waiting for soup to cool down and then to bed. Finally picking up a book again, but this time, I’m reading on my phone! (I sneak a few pages, or “screens”, in before bed in the dark …)
I’ve been back at work full-time for two weeks now. I feel like I need to put up a sunny picture to keep my mood up. I actually just used part of this image in another place, but it seemed fitting for use here as well. April flew by but it didn’t go by without reminiscing of the year that’s passed, and celebrating BK’s first birthday.
Lately – we are busy doing our TAXES last minute as usual (Ok, done now but not submitted), juggling taking care of BK, and as Furious shared on the baby blog … duh, duh, duh … BK is going to be a big sister this (yes, THIS) October! I was quite tired from mid-February to early April. I couldn’t concentrate on much, and I’d go to bed right after BK went down. (I was sleeping a good 10 hours a night, that’s unheard of!) I think I’m kind of back to my old patterns again but there is more on the plate to handle and just much more to think about. Hopefully I’ll be back to some consistent blogging and projects before Boo Boo #2 makes their appearance.
This post seems a bit of a mish-mash of sorts, but I wanted to share this quote that I found last week. Hopefully a reminder to self to keep working on all those things I have on a list. It was taken from this interview of graphic designer Louise Fili:
“I believe that every designer has to have personal projects—it’s the only way to grow and find a unique voice. At any given point in time, I’m working on an independent project in the studio and that’s very important to me—it’s what defines me as a designer.” - Louise Fili

Sorry for the long absences lately. There has been much going on. I was in NYC last week and got back this past Monday. Highly unusual, I didn’t even take a lot of photos this time sadly. Not the easiest with a baby-in-tow trekking around the city. (Note: We are not doing it again anytime soon!) On Saturday, I got a day out with the girls which was a nice break. We went to see the Sagmeister and Walsh exhibit at the Jewish Museum, I tried Shake Shack for the first time (YUM!), and we made a quick stop at Ladurée where I snapped this on the way out. … And then at night, our hosts L & R treated us to an amazing dinner in the ‘hood at Prospect. I was dreading the New York trip quite a bit thinking about BK’s nap times and lugging a stroller around town, but we are spoiled through and through. One has to remember to be grateful.
On another note, sadly I also didn’t sign up for the new Blogging Your Way course even though I was late and still had the chance to sign up (Argh!) I’ll have to suffice with reading over my notes from the Fall class. It’s spring but it’s STILL snowing over here. Mat. leave is coming down to its final weeks. <Insert sad face>
