gonna say "see ya" next year...

ready to turn my dream of traveling into a reality in 2011. i made the promise to myself years ago to take a trip out of the country at least once a year. sad to say, i failed this year. ALL of 2010 was spent in the US...which frankly, is NOT ok with me. life is too short to not be exploring this world.

plans for an adventure-filled backpacking trip to Argentina are in the works! buenos aires, fitz roy, bariloche...all part of the plan.

yes, i'm crying for you, argentina. (yes, im nerdy)

i also have a very strong desire to actually learn to surf decently. this was spurred by a quick glance in a mavericks book at the book store today. the waves/ocean is so humbling, terrifying, and peaceful all at the same time. my 1.5" waves just aren't cutting it... this might mean a trip to thailand, australia, south africa, spain...

im always down for travel buddies, fyi...

food-focused creativity

restaurant calling?? maybe. im a foodie design junkie. mmmmm...why not? i LOVE cooking and eating. i have an appreciation for food and (i think) a pretty fine-tuned pallette. i can't think of a space id rather design than restaurants and their kitchens where the magic happens. while dining out, ambiance is key. while cooking, efficiency and good equipment are a must. this might be back to school, AGAIN.

looking into it...salvating at the thought...

cloud 13...hello!  man, im a happy chick these days.  after getting pretty close to rock bottom, i somehow picked my spirit back up and feel like im flying.  work is's been feeling like play these days.  blurring the line between work and play is a MAJOR goal in life and maybe im finally learning how to achieve that.  ive been to many beautiful places recently (OUTSIDE places) with fantastic company and have been feeling inspired and motivated to continue the adventures. rain or shine, outside is where its at!  rain is in the forecast and im STOKED!  music rocks my world extra hard recently.  some awesome design events are looming in the near future and hobbies that i was forced to put down for a while are being picked back up.  i have been spending more time in the kitchen (my fav part of the house...well tied with my bed)...experimentally cooking...loving the process and (usually) the outcome. who's hungry?  cooking for others is especially fun and rewarding.

trying to supress my night-owl nature in hopes of feeling refreshed tomorrow.  sweet dreams :)

excitement is brewing!

tonight has been about researching, networking, connecting, getting inspired, and catching up one my glossy design magazine reading all wall spending "quality" time with lil sister in front of a bad movie.  pretty A.D.D., i know. 

however, within the inky-smelling pages of my latest issue of elle decor i discovered an upcoming sf design showcase in november!  sweeeeet! i LOVE inspiring.

i've GOT to get my sh*t together and get into one of these...
