Writing a blogger diary every three weeks, sometimes it’s hard to pick just one thing to talk about. Life has been a whirlwind – a good one, but nonetheless – a whirlwind.
Last week, as you all saw, we threw a party here in Philadelphia for the opening of our Walnut Street store. I saw two months of hard work culminate with a festive night of happy faces. The satisfaction of watching it all pay off was unreal. Leading up to that point, my head had been 1 million mile-per-minute thoughts. I took the following day off, and just let myself sit in the happiness, appreciating the calm.
I’ve also been enjoying the city a lot lately. Hopping from one spot to the next, discovering and observing – I love the grit and the beauty of urban life. There’s always someplace new to go, and there are always the old favorites to return to. You can run by a river, and then shop down skyscraper-lined streets, listening to your feet clack, clack against the cement.
Rather than give you more long-winded stories to recount the past three weeks, here are three current obsessions which will mark this time in my memories:
- My friends and I can’t stop listening to Gotye’s, “Somebody I used to know,” which is the first track on my current playlist.
- On the weekends, I tend to like blogs that I can actually sit down and read. Roost Blog, Paper Castles Press, and Mystic Mamma have been my go-to’s.
- I picked up the Ikat Printed Balloon Pants in the black combo color way. Yoga, brunch, napping – they’ve barely left my body since. It’s safe to say, I’m obsessed.
