A Fresh Coat of Paint

Young People! Hi. How are you? It’s been so long.

There is something to be said for a fresh coat of paint, whether it’s on the walls or on your nails. It’s like wiping the slate clean for a new season, prep for something new. Or, in my case, as prep for glitter, because glitter makes everything infinitely more awesome.

My sweet boyfriend will be moving to San Francisco in just a few weeks (finally + hooray!) which will be a big transition, and there are a few other changes on the horizon that are causing tiny butterfly wings of hope and anticipation. Come on 2012!

There are also some little things to be excited for: an iPhone case to guard against my perennial droppage, selling my snowboard (did you know skiing is so much more awesome? Why didn’t anyone tell me?!), cleaning out my closet, and taking a few fun weekend trips.

So, while I’m not much one for resolutions – blanket proclamations seem the stuff of either the newly elected or the delusional – there is something to be said for a new year, new ideas, new projects, goals and dreams.

Happy Christmas!

Blogging from Colorado today, and I’ll be home for the next two weeks – finally! It feels so wonderful to be home. Even though I love my life in San Francisco, the work stress, noise, drizzly weather, and a general lack of yoga and running and sunshine in my life have definitely taken their toll this fall and winter. I’m so excited for two weeks full of sleeping, wine, cards, neighbors, friends, skiing, cabin time, and getting back to what really matters.

Happy Christmas to you, dear friend. I hope your holiday is full of wonderful things. Thank you for being here! I’m so excited for a new year of new ideas, adventures, and creativity when we all come back. See you in two weeks!
