I read that creative people are almost always procrastinators, to a fault. True. I also read that it is because creative people are perfectionists (with a slice of OCD) and procrastinate in fear of not accomplishing something perfectly. Sort of false. That's not me. I just procrastinate....normally. Like, day to day. I'm trying to get better, but I'm procrastinating on that too.
I am going to warn you, if you don't read this blog, I assure you, you are not missing out on a damn thing. I don't have a magic recipe that shaves 10lbs off but I'm pretty sure there is a filter for that now. It's been a WHOLE YEAR since I put words together to form an acceptable ramble. A year!! And it was a really good year. I think the biggest and craziest thing I did was buy a short bus! I saw it, I bought it, BOOM...within 48 hours this puppy was all mine! I had this vision of a mobile boutique, so that's what I did. It was such a cool experience, maddening at times, yet fun. I was so excited to show my daughter that anything is possible, if you put your mind to it! And, definitely fun to drive too! And let's be honest, if you're going to drive a faded, vintage 1983 GMC short bus, you better own that shit. I'm talking windows down, ray-bans, gangster lean and some old school Tupac. Cha Know? Sadly, I said goodbye to my ol' skoolie 'Loretta' earlier this year. Welp. She needed a new home where she could be given attention on the daily and I was neglecting her, as she sat all alone in my driveway. Bye, Loretta! It was real.
So many more followers on Facebook and Insta as of late. Uber exciting and HI to all of you! I'm trying to get better at posting more of my face piece in an attempt to build affinity with each of you. The thing is, selfie's are so not my thing. I've gotten better. And now Insta says I should post stories and highlights and I'm like, emeragerd! The reality is that I LOVE, love, looooove how Spoon Me has evolved. I celebrated 2 years in 2018. I love that my creations are in your homes and that I have made memories for you. Pretty damn cool and very rewarding for me as well with the exception of never being able to maintain a manicure.
Now who's ready for Summer? The birds are chirping, my hostas should be on an episode of girls gone wild and I'm aggressively pinning bbq and sangria recipes to my Pinterest board. Not to mention I've already started geekin' it up in may garden, which is in full swing! I'm one of those wanna-be hippies that makes my own newspaper pots and starts seeds under shop lights in my basement. Uber nerd. BUT, I will say, in a society that is intoxicated with tablets, touchscreens and Alexa taking over the world, it is refreshing to know that my daughter will be capable of growing a tomato from seed. Maybe. Hopefully she doesn't ask Alexa to grow her one. That would be a Mom fail.
All in all, 2018 has had a solid run thus; celebrations, milestones, speed bumps and impromptu trips! Check it.....I knocked Angels Landing at Zion National Park off the ol' bucket list. On my actual birthday I might add! Then I was in bed by 9:30pm the same night because my awesome meter had reached it's limit for the day. Good sibling QT time. That's my Airforce bro. Super heart emoji proud of him. And I like to point out that he's the older one.
Then came my daughters birthday, my birthday, some cool collabs with fellow IG makers and much more! The
Finally, I commend you if you made this far. You DESERVE a treat! So, surf the Etsy shop for some fun eye candy! And seriously, thank you for being a fan of my work. On days where the heart and mind are not 100%, your words inspire me.
