It is very late. Delirium has set in so, naturally, now is a great time for a blog post. Just trying to keep y'all entertained.

Today has been a whirlwind that started off with one of the most surreal celebrity experiences I've ever had. Now I'm wishing there was more pad thai in this house and perhaps a few beers. Also, it snowed in Austin yesterday. Things are strange and I sometimes get bored and read astrology to see if I can decipher any of this inexplicable world.

Plugging away at a long to-do list of valentine deliveries and thinking about how Wednesday will feel like Friday and Friday will feel like Sunday and Sunday will feel like a strange pocket of time tacked on that is specifically made for Hulu and Downton Abbey and my b l a n k e t s. A good blanket is hard to find. If you love something, let it go? Obviously a phrase made up by someone with a crummy blanket.

valentine's day is, hands down, my favorite day of the year. not because i'm crazy busy or because i have any kind of don juans making grand gestures for me (HA), but because i actually get to be a part of helping people plan the way they're going to show someone how much they love them. it's truly, truly moving to me every year the amazing thought and care that people place into their orders and it makes it impossible for me to be cynical about love or dating or relationships, no matter how desolate things may feel at times.

i came across this poem, which my studiomate had tacked up on her wall, and this one part of it stopped me in my tracks. here's you to you, lovers. please keep leading by example.

when you speak my leaves hold color
i go limber again
and recognize myself unbelievably
close to you
very like you
very like eternal.
there are no last words between us.

san fran

way back in december, i made a jaunt with my friend currie (of spartan) out to san francisco. 'twas a nice and inspiring trip before the holidays. currie's photos are stunning, mine are mostly via iphone, but i was overwhelmed with inspiration nonetheless.
