I have to admit. When the blog was down for a week, there was a tiny part of me that was relieved, only because we were having the most busiest week and I was dreading dealing with the feeling of “neglect-a-blog”. I haven’t even been taking any photos lately.
Mark and I have been working like crazy. Mother’s Day season is upon us and we’ve been getting orders through the site like crazy due to coverage in this month’s issue of Real Simple magazine. It feels like Christmas all over again.
I’m continuing with ad agency freelance work and I don’t hate it which still continues to surprise me despite the crazy deadlines and the fact that I moved over to the “dark side”. I go into the office a few times a week for meetings and I guess it’s still sort of novel because I start humming the theme to The Office whenever I enter the building, walk past security and ride the elevator up to the 8th floor. In a month, however, I’m going back to more art world and educational institution work to balance out my part in helping hawk consumer products to the public.
We’re having a day of rest here in the suburbs before another busy week ahead of us. And guess what you guys? We may no longer be the last family we know with a mammoth, old school tube TV. We rented out our apartment for a photoshoot for a day and a half after being approached by a publishing company to use our place as a backdrop for a book and we took that money to buy a new flat screen 40 inch TV. Hooray! We’re not really TV junkies, but we’ve never bought a TV before and I’m irrationally excited about having a new TV in the house. Just in time for the series finale of LOST!
