    Spring is in the air, which means for a lucky few: spring break. A chance to get away from the everyday and experience an adventure or maybe a new culture. Lately, I’ve been dreaming about blue skies, blue water and sun-drenched streets. Alas, there is no escaping … Read More

  3. Old Designs Find New Life with Shutterfly

    A couple months ago we were digging through boxes in the attic. I came across a huge stack of notebooks and sketchbooks from the past 10 years. The stack came up to my knees! Some of these books were from college and recalled many a late night pulling together … Read More

  4. My Inbox Runneth Over

    Confessions of a modern adult: My inbox terrifies me. There is a three-digit number on the upper right corner of the mail icon on my phone. At one point, this was a four digit number. It’s not procrastination that scares me, it’s the sheer volume of email that … Read More

  9. Exclusive Early Access to Away Luggage

    What could take the sting out of missing vacation? A full seven days at home. Like didn’t-even-leave-the-house-to-go-to-the-office-to-work home. It was unexpected, but glorious.
