I hope you can understand my continued quietness. I am re-working a number of things. This site is getting not just a visual makeover (due to be completed in a couple weeks), but, as it is a direct reflection of what is going on in my professional and personal life (and literally in my brain), it is getting a bit of an overhaul in that department too.
The start of a new school year is for me (particularly as a mom) a great time to leap into a new adventures (ah, the return to a schedule that includes reliable and solid chunks of uninterrupted work time!). Last year I partnered with Susan to launch Leaf Magazine and this year is no different when it comes to taking on new challenges.
In addition to a site over haul (it’s been the same since 2008 – it is about time!), I am officially on a diet (I know, you probably don’t care about this, but I do). This is big for me as I have never been a person who has had to do such things…but this last year (I guess with stress and age?) I have gained 10 lbs. — Going into the fall, my jeans are not comfortable and I love my clothes too much to give them up in exchange for new bigger versions. I know the answer lies in getting my priorities straight, less time in front of the computer and more time moving my body. I’m all about mini goals that add up to big goals right now. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Also — I have some new projects that I am insanely excited to tell you about…but will share in their own due course. All of this leads up to a little more time where I am not going to be here on a daily basis — but soon (very soon) I will be back to my old regular-posting self. Summer is almost over, school starts in 10 days….so the count down clock is ticking.
