It’s another gray, cloudy morning here in Wisconsin, and I’m not even mad about it. The gloomy, low-hanging skies seem to fit my mood as of late, which is to say I’ve been sleeping in later and enjoying lots of cozy mornings in bed with coffee. Welcome fall, I love you.
Remember how I said I was going to blog more? Yeah… that’s probably not going to happen. Because (a) I’m overcommitted to life (← title of my autobiography), and (b) I’m working on a handful of new projects that are going to require my full attention. I’m also making progress on that brand new website I started working on over a year ago! “Perpetually behind” could be the alternative title to my autobiography, but I think that one sends the wrong message.
Anyways, the important thing is I’m here today. Life is strange, and people are the worst (and the best), and we’re all getting by with the help of coffee, LOLs, good family + friends, radical acts of kindness, and the internet. There’s been some seriously good reading + finds around the web lately, so I highly encourage you check out each + everyone of these links.
I mean, we could all use an excuse for Tuesday procrastination, amiright?
