I don’t know about you, but I don’t dread Mondays. I love Mondays actually! It’s the one day that I give myself time to go “hardcore OCD” and prepare for the rest of the week. I make a cup of (extra caffeinated) coffee and get right to it.

  • Write out schedule for the week, check.
  • Identify the weeks goals, check.
  • Catch up on all e-mails and sort them into appropriate folders, check.
  • Respond to all texts you ignored last week, check.
  • Delete all the crap on my desktop that I’ve accumulated from last week, check.
  • Laundry, check.
  • Throw away all Starbucks cups in car, check.
  • Fill pill organizer with weeks worth of vitamins, check.

I mean, Mondays really aren’t bad if you think about it. But you know what day I do despise though? WEDNESDAY. Wednesday is the one day of the week where it’s like "ha-ha you’ve only worked 2 days this week and you’re already exhausted and over it but you have another 2 days to go until the weekend. Oh— And your dog chewed up another one of your underwear… Sucker." So yeah, sometimes I get a little down on Wednesdays and have a little less patience for stupid drivers on the road, but the one thing I can always count on to pick me back up is good music. Even if I only have time to listen to a few songs on the way to the post office, it’s almost guaranteed to improve my day.

You know those moments you have while driving, and you’re looking out the window and you kinda feel like you’re in a movie or music video or something? (Don’t lie, you’ve had that moment. We’ve all had that moment.) Well, this is the kind of music that would be playing in my ‘97 Honda during my music video moment. Hope you enjoy this ”mid-week-life-is-annoying-sometimes-but-you-should-chill-the-eff-out-cuz-the-weekends-near” playlist. It’s short, but should be long enough to last you throughout your lunch break.

Day 2 of my mini-vacation here in Vancouver, BC. The weather is perfect right now and I couldn’t have picked a better time to visit. Had drinks last night at the grand opening of the new Mahony & Sons at Stamp’s Landing and I have to say that this is definitely the best patio view in downtown. Just being able to sit there and absorb the beauty of this city was just what I needed for this next chapter in my creative career. Luckily I haven’t hit a design block in awhile because my amazing customers and friends keep me inspired everyday, but, it’s little things like this that make me want to work even harder so that I can enjoy trips like this every so often. Excited to explore more of Canada, and even MORE excited that this country is my future home. :)

Usual work attire. And not because I’m too lazy to get ready (ok fine, maybe a little lazy).. But because it’s excruciatingly hot in Sacramento and I’m counting down the days until I’m back in Canada. ❄️☔️

Sometimes I fantasize about what it’s like to live in some of the places I ship to all around the world. Does our sunrise look the same? Do they get a relief of cool air around 7pm like I do? Are they a walk away from an amazing beach? Do they live in the middle of a busy city? Or the middle of nowhere? 

And then I realize I can literally just google earth their address and answer all of my questions, except that’s really creepy so I don’t and just let my imagination wander.
