day 6 of 100 days of lettering

I have lived in San Francisco, California for 10.5 years now. This is my home yet it still feels like yesterday that I moved here from the cold, quiet, small but charming Midwest. Days can feel surreal. I think that comes from my mindset of learning how to pause, not take days for granted and be present which can be very hard to execute in this "busy" world. 

It's Saturday, and I am going to take some time to escape and enjoy the sun. Afternoon bike ride, here I come ... 

PS - This is the song I was listening to while lettering. So beautiful. One of my favorites. 

IRON + WINE // FLIGHTLESS BIRD, AMERICAN MOTH 


day 3 of 100 days of lettering

As I sat at my desk this morning trying out different pens and writing a variety of phrases, I took a break to check my email and came across this video. Have you seen it?

Goosebumps and tears. 

There are so many ways this video tugged on my heart strings. Max and I have an age difference of six years. A number that made both of us a little hesitant but we quickly realized that love has no age

With family and friends of all genders, race, disability and religion, I see first hand that they LIVE and LOVE with SO MUCH HEART and that is all that matters. Love has no labels. LOVE IS LOVE. 

And so, this very video inspired my words for DAY THREE of my lettering challenge.
