[taps mic] Is this thing on? Is there anybody out there still reading this thing?
Sorry for my lapse in posting. I like to sometimes refer to the season of summer as a dead zone. It's chaotic and quiet all at the same time. The sun's up for almost 16 hours, and we feel like we need to capitalize on every moment we can get in the sun, so blogging falls into last place on the list (doesn't it always?). And then one day you realize that winter is knocking on your door and the sun is setting at 4:45 and we're all "Where did the day go? Is it dinner time yet? Wait it's only 5:30?!" (Seriously that conversation happened at least 4 times a week in December)
And now that the sun is finally starting to stick around a bit longer everyday, it seems like it's time to bring back the blog. Not like in full on "I'm a blogger!" mode because let's be honest. That's not me. More like my natural tendency: every now & then and most likely when I'm procrastinating on doing something else. Isn't that usually when most things get done?
Take for instance the fact that just like clockwork, I updated my logo. Around this time every year, it always feels like it's time for something new. Something that rings truer to current me than last year's me. Plus I recently got a new shipment of pens, and I needed an excuse to play with them. Win-win, right? So this year I went with a happy blend of hand lettering and watercolor splatter in my true color love, Prussian blue. Essentially this is my ideal lettering date, if you were curious.
So, to recap: hi! I'm still here. Occasionally I procrastinate. I made a new logo. I actually blogged. We are not playing 2 truths and a lie, because all of those things happened.
