Sweet friends, It’s my birthday this week! And since I’m turning 48, I decided to make superhero pendants just $48
($80) through Sunday!
Just a couple of years ago, I decided I would go on a first date on my birthday evening. The date looked promising and I thought it would be a fun little adventure on a night when I didn’t have a whole lot planned. Well… the date stood me up! First, he texted he was running late. Then he was running later. Then, I saw him coming out of the bar where we planned to meet with another girl! “Oh hey,” he said awkwardly. “Go inside and sit down. I’ll be right back.”
As I sat by myself taking up way too big table for one person in a crowded bar, I caught up with myself. Wait a minute, I thought. I don’t have to sit here one moment longer! I get to leave.
Exhilarated, I left the bar and headed toward the BART train to head home. On the way, I saw him on a street corner eating pizza with a girl. “Wait!” he said. “Yeah, no…” I began, “This is never going to work. Good to know sooner than later!” and I kept walking.
This year, things are looking up folks! I’m feeling loved up by so many people in my life. Maybe, most especially, myself. Clearly, I needed some hard lessons in this…(this was not the first!) I think that was my little birthday present from the universe that night, realizing that I was too precious not to be adored and treated with total kindness and respect. Hallelujah.
In other news, here is a preview of my new website!
I’ve been working with a genius branding whiz and designer for much of this year- Emma Brownson at Soul Stirring Branding – and feeling incredibly lucky and excited about the new website. Her tagline happens to be love-soaked visual branding identity + web design… so even though she is all the way in Australia, I had to choose her!
Here’s a peek of what’s coming soon! I pretty much squee with excitement every time she sends me a finished page. 😉
I love how unapologetically feminine it is, how it reflects the new energy I am bringing to the world. It’s amazing how visuals can give you a whole new feeling about your work.
For my birthday!
Good news about San Miguel de Allende!
Flights from the Bay Area (and likely from lots of other places) are suuuuper cheap right now. I just got tickets for Laurie and I for our March dates for half of what we normally pay.
Message me if you want to know our exact itinerary. (We have a few spots open in both our January and March 2020 sessions!)
All to say, this is a great time to say YES to Mexico with me and Laurie. These creative retreats are the best thing that happens to me all year long. Deep connection, authentic personal essay writing, colors, textures, flavors, portraits of YOU and beauty beauty beauty.
