Happy Monday everybody!
Hope things are well by you. I sit here on my laptop next to an open window, relishing, no — wallowing, in the sunshine and cool breeze. The height of spring sprung over the weekend and I don’t recall a time when every tree and bush decided to bloom at the same time. Every trip outdoors is literally a chorus of blossoms. I am in awe. In less exciting news, I am coming off a heavy work week (new record – 256 design document exports in a single day), and while I’m very grateful for the work, right now, I’m a lot more grateful to be chilling out next to this open window and thinking about doing something NOT ON A COMPUTER. Hurrah!
