Hello, love

ben howard, calligraphy, hand lettering, brush lettering, lyrics, inspiration Hello! I know, I know...I've been totally M.I.A. lately. First of all, I can't even believe it's the end of September already, let alone nearly the end of the year! Where did 2014 go? It's been a very eventful one so far, that's all I know...Let me just say that it's been crazy in the land of Jess lately, and I came to stop by to give a little update as to what I've been up to, just in case you were wondering if I've maybe fallen off the face of the Earth...

// Moving! I'm moving! October 1st, I'll be in a new apartment and new Brooklyn neighborhood. I'm excited, and so totally happy the hunt is over. There's something so fresh and inspiring about a new space. I'm excited about the new start and new beginning. As soon as I get settled in, I hope to get the blog back to normal postings!

// I've taken a little step back from Coco & Mingo to prioritize some client work. Yes! I'm so excited about some projects I've been working on and can't wait to share with you once I'm finished. I do, however, wish I had a clone so that I could do both client work and blog work at the same time!

// New site! I'm gearing up for a brand new site - less blog, more personal work, and finally maybe even get my lil shop up and running once things get settled...so stay tuned! I'm thinking about Squarespace as my platform...anyone have experience with it and love it?! I'd love to hear. But I'll still continue with this blog, don't worry!

// Finally, through all this, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll somehow get to attend the Ben Howard show in late October here in Brooklyn. Tickets sold out in 5 minutes. No kidding. I'm so excited for it! In the meantime, I'm listening to his music non-stop, especially his gorgeous new song, "I forget where we were". On repeat, you know it. He knows me so well...♥

I wish I had more than 24 hours in a day (and the energy to go with it)...don't you feel like that sometimes?? I've gotta get my day balanced again...trying to juggle a full-time job, blog, and client work (oh, and sleep and eat in between) is craay-zay. Let me just say that I'm getting this post done at 3 AM. But we can all accomplish anything we put our minds to, right?! Hoorah!!

Happy Wednesday, friends!! ♥
