So, yes, I was home in Texas for a whole second. Literally, a few days. Heading back to the hills tomorrow... early... with my pops. I love my family. SO much. This photo montage is us trying to take a family picture with the self-timer...
[as i'm walking into the post office... a very backwoods voice comes from a car...] - Hey! Now where you find that buffalo medallion you got? - Oh, ummm... My best friend got it for me... in New York City. - Hahaha, New York City... - No, seriously. That's where it's from. - Hahaha... Yeah...… Continue reading you know you’re moving up in the world when old men in cars holler at you…
It's amazing that no matter how crazy it gets [how crazy you get, how crazy i get], the morning refreshes. And it's awesome how sitting down at this funny machine, listening to some ridiculous music, dancing a little bit [head bobbles], make me smiling a part of my good good morning. Bobble for me... And… Continue reading bobble for me.
Had a very real dream last night. Friend was crying, scared of their new life, their move, missing their friends, said it was too hard. I told them to embrace the hard, dark times because when joy comes again, it will be brighter, bliss - richer, love - deeper. Woke up, craving Australia. Wanted to… Continue reading brighter, richer, deeper.
A funny/sad story... Saturday, I was stressing about work I had to get done... told a friend I probably couldn't socialize, couldn't hang, but he didn't take "no" for an answer and I agreed to go to the Art Fair for a whole second. And I'm so glad I did. Twas awesome. I bought a… Continue reading “hi. yes, i promise i’m 24.”
I cried three times today at work. You must remember that I work twelve hour shifts... gotta spread the cry out. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't down today at all. In fact, I was all smiles. I don't know what's gotten into me, but I have been ridiculously joyous lately... lots of random dance… Continue reading my cries.
It's no glorious studio... but it's a little space... a simple space... where the magic happens. [p.s. magic = mad computer skillzzzz.] [p.p.s. mad computer skillzzzz = mostly blogging... when i should be designing.] I'm kinda psyched on it. And here is the song I've listened to only about a dillion times in that very… Continue reading a big ol’ smile.
I must look like a safe person... As I leave the post office this morning, I'm on the phone with a friend, walking my bike down the sidewalk. A young boy on a motorized scooter approaches me and says... - Hi! I'm Joe. What's your name? - Rachel. - Nice to meet you. [puts out… Continue reading hey, excuse me… check this out!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOMMA! This is my mother in our favorite toy store, Toy Joy. How can you not love that face? If you know my mom at all, you know that she is one special woman. And if you've never met her, trust me... she's amazing. I've noticed lately that I've had many honest conversations… Continue reading i’ll take the dim sum.
Soon I will have a gallery of previous banners... because there have been many. And yes, no banner will beat the Mary Poppins one... but how bout them robots? You like?
Seriously. I dare you to watch this and try not to be so smiley happy. [thanks, Ashe.] And, p.s., does anyone have a least favorite song ever? Cuz I think mine would have to be "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison. Correction: My least favorite song is "Brown Eyed Girl" by every college-aged, guitar-playing, hipster… Continue reading who knew natalie portman could dance so happily?
After a long day at work, I just had to get out, get up, wake up. So, I left at 9:20pm for my hike up Snow King [our local, little, steep, mountain]. - You're leaving now? You're really going? - Yeah, I gotta. If I'm not home by morning, assume I was eaten by a… Continue reading rightness in the randomness.
This post is mainly posted to distract from the previous post. I didn't realize how much of a "Hey, look at my boobs!" picture I posted. Whoops... Sorry, Mom. Anywho, it was supposed to be a "Hey, this is what me working looks like" picture. I really do like those kind of mess pictures. I… Continue reading where i was.
Went over to Idaho today. Met with an awesome woman from the Teton Valley Community School. Fell in love. Not with Cindy, though she was lovely, but with the school. Wow. Talked about graphic design. Am inspired. Ate at Scratch with Stacey [she's the designer I wanna be]. Scratch = new fave eats? Mayhaps. Stared… Continue reading where would we be?
There's a lot of couch surfing going on lately... I love it. I really do love having friends feel welcomed to hang out and stay at my place. Lord knows I've done my fair share of it and now I'm psyched to have any of you stay with me. [It would be more like floor… Continue reading p.s.
[yesterday morning.] Another gorgeous morning in Jackson. I think I even said [to my visiting friend]... - Another beautiful day... Welp, gotta run! I started riding my bike to work, strangers on bikes passing. It was beautiful, refreshing. Then, all of the sudden, drops of water were falling on me. I swerved to the left… Continue reading glorious confusion.
Today I wore my favorite yellow dress... the one I bought on a very happy day in Australia. I had been wanting a yellow dress. It was a very long day. The trains were all messed up [per usual], so I had to wake up at 3am to catch a train to the outskirts of… Continue reading you’re very yellow.
