I haven’t posted since moving in to the new place. Spoiler alert: it’s great. It’s been a lot of work, too, and a huge emotional adjustment to getting back to living by myself again. Sunday will mark one month since I moved in. I can’t wait to see what it looks like and feel how it feels when I’m celebrating one year.
Artwork from friends, family, and those I admire sets the tone for the office.
Dumpster paintings are back again
This plant’s been with me since 2005 in Baltimore. Also, I’m still learning how to tell time on an analog clock.

Never underestimate the healing power of new personal stationery, especially when they’re Moo Luxe cards. Typeface is Verlag.
I’m too exhausted after two weeks of traveling, house-planning, and dog-training to come up with any clever ways of saying how real this is finally starting to feel, but standing in my future house was incredible. I can’t wait to live here.

Much of it was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan, but I’m happy that we captured a few pieces of it in photos.

Automattic’s Team Social came to visit New Orleans for a team meetup, and I had the pleasure of crashing it over the weekend.
A few scenes from Budapest, taken on a drizzly afternoon late in our stay.
For my birthday a few friends and family took me to the “casino” in Atmore for a fancy supper. The food was good enough to make up for how much money I lost. The number of different ways you can brand a video bingo machine is insane.
Caught a few nice scenes this morning in the back yard.
