Ready, Go.

ebb + flow :: friday

Friday, Friday, Friday! You’re here and I am oh-so glad. After a busy few weeks of navigating a new job, travel, bi-polar weather and busy evenings a quiet Easter weekend sounds delightful. Hope you enjoy the couple days off no matter what you’re up to.

Raise Your Glass, Guys

March 10, 2017

ebb + flow :: raise it up

Happy Friday, friends! Another weekend lies ahead and even though it’s an hour shorter than I’d like I’m still optimistic that it will be wonderful. Wonderful to me means a weekend of house projects (dining room is going green!), showering expecting friends and racing to finish a library book so I’m not hit with late fees. I live an adventurous life. I’ll try and sneak in a glass of wine or two in-between all the wild times. Cheers!

Your Space

February 27, 2017

ebb + flow :: your space

From what I’ve seen so far, the new (to me) office I’ll be working in is pretty standard for most 9-5 gigs. Think cubes. So these next few weeks I’ll be digging through our cabinets, boxes and drawers that are housing all our belongings during the basement renovation and dusting off some old favorites to help make the office space my own. I see a clipboard wall in my future and definitely lots of photos of this grey guy, of course!

New Beginning

February 24, 2017

ebb + flow :: begin again

Today was my last day as a Mall of America employee. Whoa!

After almost six years in the retail world leading the in-house design team at MOA I’m trading my fashion photo shoots for the world of public transportation. I’ll share more details in the weeks ahead as I get settled but until then I’ll be working through these feelings of fear and excitement while learning every day about an industry that has much to teach me. Eeks! Here’s to new adventures and the magic of beginnings!

Windows Down

February 17, 2017

ebb + flow :: sunlight

Guys, the forecast is calling for 50s and 60s this weekend. That means I’m driving with the windows down, keeping the doors to our house open and soaking up every breeze, ray of sunshine and cocktail I can find. It’s going to be a good one.

Take A Minute.

January 26, 2017

ebb + flow :: take a minute.

Yesterday over lunch my co-workers and I took some time to print postcards, gather up stamps and we wrote our representatives. I had a lot to say and the postcard was small but I’m going to keep writing and I can’t wait to see what other actions the Women’s March group has planned for the days ahead. Sign up here to join the 10 Actions in 100 Days campaign and let’s work towards the change we want to see. It’s the least we can do.
