FEBRUARY : dogs & jobs & birthdays

monthinreview_february

How is it the last weekend in February?  Given February is a short month, the weeks and days really flew by. Since my last post I have yet to get my new blog set up. Did you know designing a new blog is hard!? Especially when you’re a mild design snob that doesn’t want to look like everyone else. I also spent the little “free” time I did have working on my professional website instead. I felt that was the responsible priority. Fortunately I did make a lot of progress, and it’s very close to being completed. Still need to make some minor tweaks and fill up my career highlights, but it can be green sometime in March. Can’t wait till I don’t have to include, “the website is still in development” when I hand people my card.

So what did this month look like for me? It’s Bowerbird and I’s birthday month. My birthday is the fourth of February, and we went on a day adventure to Salvation Mountain to celebrate, which I’ll post about by the end of the day. (Setting goals) Then the very next day after my birthday I found a stray dog in front of my house, fast forward a week and we adopted the dog. I told Bowerbird I got him the gift of unconditional love for Valentine’s Day. Finding Louloo (pronounced : loo – loo) and adopting her is a soap opera worthy tale as well.

I added a new client to the roster. A fantastic cosmetic line, I’m really excited to be working with and I’ve been signed on to help Thinkspace more. My day-to-day is completely unpredictable. Sometimes it feels like projects fall from the sky, and it’s just a matter of be figuring out when and how fast I can turn them around. This week I found myself enjoying the time spent in traffic, as it was designated time away from a computer. But then most of that driving was for work. I had the pleasure of picking up water from Jim Hensen studio for one of my clients. Driving through those iron gates with Kermit above my head in a top hat was magical. If I’d planned it better, I would have queued up a song to play.

Yet that same day I managed to squeeze in a quick hang out with a bud who recently moved to Los Angeles. As we went to grab coffee I was sent the request to pick up another beverage that was going to sponsor an event later that evening, fortunately my pal was up for the adventure. He also did all the heavy lifting.

I used to never use my phone calendar, but I now have too. It’s the only way to make sure I’m not dropping the ball on a friend, a client, a family member. Hey Mom, I finally learned how to juggle! So far I’m loving this year, although I’m ending the night a little brain dead, I feel that electric hum that charges great moments in life. Thanks for coming on the adventure with me
