Oh hi blog, it’s me, Erin. Your original founder and writer of 5-7 blog posts per week about absolutely nothing at all. I take that back. There was much said about birthday cakes with wrong sayings, awkward and awesome moments [but mostly awkward] and topics like why I didn’t attend college and a lot [a lot] of other things. Do you remember me? It’s okay, I don’t either. At 31 my memory is mostly shot and instead of Nelly blasting in the background I’ve got Megan Kelly flooding my living room with a depressing story which is doing NOTHING for my creative vibes. I knew I should have never started watching the news or talk shows or TV.
Anyhow, I wanted to make a visit back today with no agenda at all. No topic that I MUST talk about. No clothes to click on, no subscription service you must try and most definitely not a life-changing thought or idea. Maybe just a life update of sorts? Let’s try it – at this point, the only thing I have to lose is nothing at all. That’s what happens when you speak a lot of ridiculousness early on in blogging. These days the craziest thing I publish is how I ate a poblano pepper for dinner last night. It’s a miracle any of you still show up to this space quite honestly. Snoozefest. ANYHOW. Back to life.
So what have I been up to? Nothing. Okay, that might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but I’m also kinda sick and tired of saying that silly word that we all overuse time and time again “busy”. I know I have become the WORST at this because when my family or friends call me the first thing out of their mouths is “I know you are busy but..” Gosh, I suck. Word to the wise: never become that person who is constantly giving off the vibe that you are too busy for anybody or anything else in life. It’s not a good look. Working on this now.
Oh and I just started my period. Like literally RIGHT THIS SECOND. God bless womanhood. BRB, gotta get Advil, emerge myself in a scalding hot bath and cry.
Okay, I’m back. So what I have been up to is quite a bit [maybe a little too much of a bit]. We launched the Gibson x Living In Yellow collection at Nordstrom [I knoooooowwwww, shut up about it already ;)], hired a new LIY team member [how are there SIX of us now?!] have traveled here there and everywhere, purchased a new home that we are moving our office into as we speak and that my friends, has about consumed my life. In my spare time, I’ve been dominating peach rings, jelly beans and french fries [nothing new here] and soaking up as many puppy cuddles from Max and Ollie as possible. I may have also just started back in on a project today that we had put on the sidelines which may, just may, be launching SOON. Get excited. The best part has clearly been the peach rings and Jelly Bellys 😉 Overall I have been SO happy, fulfilled, challenged, inspired and motivated not just professionally but also as I transition back into pouring more into the relationships that I have been neglecting. Not sucking is so much harder than sucking. Annnnd, that’s what she said. Actually, no, she never said that.
On that note – I’m outta here. Gotta go tend to that womanhood stuff. STUPID EVE. YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER EATEN THE APPLE.
