dreaming of miami – cuban food care package

Cuban Food Care Package 1

Some good friends of ours were supposed to spend a sunny, fun-filled weekend with us back in March. They had to cancel their much needed trip at the very last minute. It is the strangest thing to be happy that your friends cancel a trip to see you. That sounds odd, right? Well, it was for the BEST reason. They got word that they were bringing home a sweet little boy of their very own. They got the adoption call the same week they were scheduled to come down here. Baby > Miami. This has been a … [Read more...]

corporate office decorating – typographic artwork

Arid Designs Poster Mashup

One of the things I mentioned in my previous post about my side job as a corporate office decorator, was the need for artwork for our walls. With a full blank slate to work with we needed something to add life to our space. Luckily, I run the in-house creative team.

We just got back from a whirlwind trip to NYC. We honestly did not stop at all except for a 30 minute nap early in the evening on Saturday.

I was in love with NPH as a kid when he was on Doogie Howser, MD. He was my first real celebrity crush. So I relived that and waited at the side door to get his autograph on my playbill. And I … [Read more...]

Let me tell you something about myself, you may already know. I tend to take on more than I should and I have a really hard time telling people no. That will explain the craziness I embarked on last year at my day job. Our office was relatively new and completely white. Not an ounce of personality, nothing to make it ours. Considering our culture, the office didn't fit. Our execs were considering paying some over-priced and out of touch designers to give the space some life (I'm not saying all … [Read more...]

i lost my mind – disney wine & dine half marathon

Source - www.rundisney.com

Yeah, so apparently I was either drunk at 8am last week or abducted by aliens temporarily. Or really, really, really peer pressured by my best friend. I registered for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon. Do you realize I don't really run? I mean, I do exercise and regularly walk/run 2. 5 miles. But run, like run a half marathon? No. I don't do that. … [Read more...]
