almost declared a state of emergency this morning when i reached for my precious coffee, only to find we were out. luckily we had one disc of espresso left, which forced me to go old school and heat some milk on the stove. my friends taught me a delicious trick, to add nutella to the milk while it heats. so yes, i am currently enjoying a nutella latte, your jealousy is completely understandable.
yesterday i received a very sweet comment about my old writing style. someone had gone back and read my entire blog (almost 4 years worth, good on ya) and asked why i don't write like i used to. and the truth is, that i miss the way i used to write. i was honest, candid, funny even...very carrie bradshaw. i suppose since my readership has grown and i actually know people read this (including my parents..hi mom, hi dad!), i shy away from oversharing and storytelling. but, anonymous commenter has me thinking about how to incorporate the old with the new and find a healthy balance. people have since pointed out that it's natural to evolve as a person and a writer, but for all the times lately that i've sat staring blankly at a computer screen at a loss for words, this just might be the solution i was looking for.
so last night, instead of brainstorming post ideas, i found myself immersed in photo shop, downloading new fonts, and ultimately creating a new logo. been extra inspired by cocoa and hearts lately, her art is so beautiful, but i am especially drawn to her use of colour. it's actually this painting that helped create my new blog concept. a definite work in progress that kept me up until all hours of the night! hope you like it, any design suggestions are mucho appreciated.
