it's been awhile...

i took an extended break from blogging. perhaps i got too busy, or maybe felt like i didn't have much to say (or show) for awhile. whatever the reason, the break was needed. i am grateful to all who have sent their thoughts my way...most of who i know, and surprisingly... a handful of those i don't...curious of the silence, who wanted to make sure all was well in my part of the world. thank you, friends, near and far, old and new.

i wanted to share a bit of what i have been up to (via photos) during the last few months and some of my favorite posts from fellow bloggers.

dc pride parade 2014
spring in dc was one of the best i have experienced since moving here 

and lastly...i got to meet one of my favorite bloggers, garance doré who has partnered with
 one of my favorite illustrators, anna rifle bond of rifle paper co in march. chatting with anna and
garance is at the top of my list of favorite moments of 2014.

and the very talented nicholas ouchenir
