good riddance 2008

I'm ready to kick 2008 in the butt and move on to the New Year.

For me, this past year has been pretty lack-luster.  There's been NO excitement, NO big news, NO amazing travels, and NO exploration!

I'm ready for change!   I'm determined to make 2009 a year for the books, a chart topper, a year to remember.

My new year's resolution is simple:  happiness!
I hope to spend more quality time with friends.
I hope to find work that challenges me to be better.
I hope to be blessed with good health.
And...I hope to grow in knowledge and self.

5 days and counting

Not only am I counting down the days until Christmas, I'm also counting down the days until I have a day off of work. 5 days and counting.

perfectly messy

I'm in LOVE with Chloe Sevigny's hair in this photo. I'm always in awe of people who can get their hair to look "perfectly messy".

Anthony Roussel

I was in love when I stumbled upon the laser-cut wood jewelry of Anthony Roussel.   Sculptural but wearable.  Structured but delicate.  Natural.  Movement.  Rhythmic.  BEAUTIFUL!!!

Song of the week

Song of the week: A-Punk by Vampire Weekend

I know this song is a little old... but this was the first time I saw the video.
I LOVE IT, it made me smile!


A few weeks ago, this little cutie wandered into our house off the mean streets of Baltimore.  I'm guessing it's a little warmer in here than outside, because she has decided to stay.  May I introduce you to the new head of the household:  Tallulah  (aka- Lulu)

sick day

I took a sick day from work today.  The biggest thing I did today was move from my bed to the couch.  To say the least... not much was accomplished.  I did, however, find time to create this video.  I should probably apologize to my brother and sister, who I have also included.  Sorry, love you guys! :)

Holy crap, it's December!

Where the heck did this year go???  It's now December.
Today (December 1st) is world's AIDS day.  Starbucks has partnered up with the (RED) program and is donating 5 cents from every purchase to help fight AIDS in Africa.  November 27th- January 1st.

Luckily for Starbucks, I spend WAY too much money at their stores.  At least I'll feel better buying coffee for the next month, because I'll also be doing my part to help the world.  :)
