first, an apology.
i'm sorry, everyone. i sure do suck lately. at blogging. at e-mails. at keeping up with my family and friends. and it's unfortunate my blog has been put on the back burner because i have so many exciting things going on! but that's the thing... it's so. many. things. i don't know how others do it - keep up with it all. i've recently realized that most of my readers don't realize that i (and danielle) have day jobs. no - lcy, my styling and graphics freelance projects, and the everygirl are not paying the bills. my lovely day job for this small but mighty non-profit is. it's the same job i've had since graduating, and i'm so lucky i get to do it from home (no commute helps me like you wouldn't believe!), and they will always come first. so from 9-5 five days a week, my time is theirs. everything else gets done afterwards and on the weekends. so yes, i'm barely finding time to sleep yet alone blog...
not that i'm complaining. as i said, so so so many wonderful things have transpired in the past month. a quick recap is in store, yes? (note: it is now 5 past midnight... so forgive any grammar errors)
birchbox. the talented chicago females in attendance were so inspiring, danielle and i wanted to leave a fish bowl at the door for them to drop their cards in so we could feature them. actually, we will be featuring quite a few of them! stay tuned.
bri emery and angela kohler, founders of blogshop. we visited them while they hosted their blogshop class here a few weekends ago. did you see their feature on the everygirl?
skirt pr team here in chicago. they're an awesome group of ladies. feature coming up next week so be on the lookout!
forbes." that was exciting and called for celebration.
official everygirl/random house book club! getting to chat with the authors of the books we're reading at the end of every month? exciting stuff! grab this month's book - wife22 by melanie gideon - and join us!
pyar and co. i spent tonight designing their look book. it's a feast for the eyes, let me tell ya. again, stay tuned...
and.... more photo shoots. this time my apartment by andy barnes for chicago home and garden magazine. fun guy. great photos. cannot wait to show you the result, but it won't be until october! boo magazine delays.
very excited to say i finally splurged and got this guy. i've only been wanting it since december so i figured it was time. it's awesome and everything i hoped it would be.
so yes... as you can see, i've been keeping busy. hopefully i'll be able to get a little bit back into the swing of things... thanks for hangin' with me.
