At this time it seems like Drupal is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Right here is the right web site for everyone who wants to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that's been discussed for a long time. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

This past weekend I had a fun little cooking blogger meet up with local blogger Allison of Allison Eats! We’re both big lovers of food, but we also like to eat healthy. To kick off the New Year, we decided to put together three healthy snacks for eating healthy in 2012. Read more »

We have a beautiful exhibit hanging in Gallery 543 at the Navy Yard right now that consists of flags by artist Emily Manalo Ruiz. The main portion of the exhibit is the “1000 Works Project”, which consists of 1000 small fabric flags, each of which are unique, sewn out of salvaged materials and inspired by old battle flags.  The exhibit also includes some of her larger flags, also made with reclaimed materials, that are text-based and printed with meaningful, personal phrases.

“Art, for me, is cathartic.  It serves as an outlet for releasing deep-seated pains, capturing fleeting memories, and for understanding and documenting my life experience.  My work conveys a sense of nostalgia, longing, and sometimes, hope. It helps me to make sense of things, to communicate, to find closure and contentment, and to attempt to make permanent what is impermanent.” – Emily Manalo Ruiz

DO: enjoy some silence

My head has been going crazy lately – moments of silence mere specks in large expanses of the days and nights. I do it to myself, I know. I’m always stuffing more into a day – going here and then going there – chasing my to-do lists with franticness in my chest. The ability to be calm has not been coming naturally. My head has been LOUD with fears, dreams, questions, and so much more. When the rare gift of silence makes an appearance, a euphoria washes over my brain.

It shows up in rare forms: an intimate moment with my nose stuck in magazine, a child’s pose on my bedroom floor, or a warm hug from one of my friends. I call it silence because of the stillness in my brain. It seems to fill the vessels, slowly traveling through my veins and transferring to the rest of my body. It’s a much needed sensation that feels so carnally necessary for survival. My heart needs it.

Whatever these moments are for you – recognize and cherish them.

Post image for The River that Ran Away to Paradise

It is crazy quiet in our office today, and I just got completely lost in daydream world looking through photos of this beautiful river, the Caristales, located near the town of La Macarena in Colombia, South America. Each year, during a brief period of time between the wet and dry seasons, when the water level is just right, the multiple varieties of algae and moss that live in the river bloom in a dazzling display of colors. The photos are so beautiful, I can only imagine what a breathtaking experience it would be to see it in person.

Post image for Office Style: American vs. British

In line with our catalog theme this month, I thought I would do some fun vs. themed office styles. Our home office has a surprisingly bountiful population of Brits who’ve crossed the big pond to work for Free People. They all have great style, so I thought that for this week I would do British vs. American style. I love them both, but tell us, which do you relate to more??

The Brits:

Welsh sisters! Both wearing an FP intimates top. Shop the updated version here.

The Hand Crochet Maxi Dress layered over an old FP beach style.
