most of the time lately, i seem to just spill my words all over this blog. they're written distractedly and without intention, and i honestly think more about how loud each letter sounds as i punch it out rather than the words i'm making and the sentences i'm building. my texts have more substance. 

i know that's not good for any of us, but i thought i couldn't find my way around it.

when i wrote something recently for someone else, i wrote it by hand. ink all over my fingers. pages of yellow ripped out and folded and rewritten in my crazy process of olden days. like, three years ago olden. 

and there's the difference, i think. when i don't physically make my words...they're just not part of me. i can pretend they are and you can pretend they are, but we're both probably just pretending. i like that we're polite that way.

all this to say i wrote something. really really wrote something. and i hope you like it. xoxo.

OH! and p.s. i was also over here and a tiny corner of my home {now dismantled due to a crankypants realtor!} can be seen right here.

I read your i wrote something. I wish we knew each other so you could write my obituary. Every sentence is like a truffle--it's just beautiful.

P.S. I still tell people about your "she needed that vacation" post...it's sidesplitting.

Oh I know what you mean friend...words are more than words when they are made with paper and pen.
I'm saving your words for tonight, when I sit down with a cup of tea. I need something to look forward to.
I'm off to a kindergarten field trip, my in laws are coming today and oh, it's Rocco's first birthday (sigh).
Hope your day is happy and shiny, Karey!

What you wrote is so incredibly moving--I've read it over and over and over again. It's funny how making things take shape in real life is much easier and much more satisfying, isn't it?

I am printing a card for another designer right this very second that I'm sending to you pronto. It pretty much sums it up

"don'tttt fuckin' leaveeee me"

I don't know it just makes me feel better that you're in the US even though you're a 5 hour plane ride away. I'm nutty like that.

GUTS me. The entire thing. It's just so...true.

Be yourself, don't change for anyone. If they don't like you at your worst, then they don't deserve you at your best
