another monday

Here’s some Monday morning inspiration from my Friday night fortune cookie.


end of summer vacay

For the past 9 days I’ve been in Texas on vacay. 7 of those were spent on the beach in Galveston. It was really nice to leave the state of OK for a while and enjoy my favorite place in the world — the beach.

a little catch up

Ever have those times where it feels like everything is happening all at once?

It makes life feel like one big game of catch up.

T’s training just picked up quite a bit, and so did my work. I feel like my ability to balance life is less of a juggle and more like catching some balls and chucking other ones fast and far away. I guess I’ll get better with practice.

T and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary over the weekend. Half a decade is pretty respectable, right? It’s weird to think we’ve been married as long as TomKat were.

I have this really talented photographer client (a fellow Air Force pilot student wife) that I have had a blast working with on some design projects. She’s got a new logo, business cards, letterhead, and website. We launched her website yesterday – take a look! I wish she lived nearby so I could get some photos done by her.

I need to get busy and run my errands. I have a stack of Pinterest projects I want to tackle, but those are just going to have to wait…

bridal mag

Not so new to the shelves but the summer issue of EA Bride just arrived at my house! This was my first issue doing layout with the fabulous team at EA Bride and it’s so good to see it in person. Most of my design work for the few years has been online or digital. I love feeling nice stock, flipping through real pages, and enjoying the depth and texture of ink on a surface. Just in time to get excited for beginning work on the fall issue!

Here are a few glimpses.
