It's been a whirlwind of a week, and I'm playing catch up right now. Ben and I moved to the Mid-city area, had relatives over, and have been trying to unpack and build our new little home. I've been working on a few other things:
* Backgrounds for a documentary that is close to my heart. I'll update when the time is more appropriate, but this project has been taking up a lot of my brain space.
* I have an art show coming up in mid May! So, so excited. I'm showing in Long Beach, at a little place called "Downtown Darling". The space is female-owned and operated, and has a heavy duty eclectic vintage vibe. Needless to say, the the owner, Sandra, and I are now partners in crime. I've had to transition from moving mode back to work mode, and started with small portraits of friends. With horns. Because they take things head-on.
* I've been doing interviews with people I adore and respect! I'm so, so elated to see these come to fruition, and will def. be letting you know when they go live.
(I know a lot of this is "in the works" stuff, and I thank you for bearing with me. I'll be getting back to my regular schedule next week. I've missed it so!)
One more thing:
*On Monday, I will be starting my 4-week Vegan Challenge. I wanted to wait til we were moved into the new place and I was in a less chaotic environment. Well, shiver me timbers, I feel good about this, especially with a vegan recipe and nutrition book at my side. Also, there is a Trader Joe's and a Whole Foods down the street from us. I feel confident and excited to start this new adventure! I really think being vegan is a fantastic way to make an impact on the environment and one's own health, and it doesn't seem as unrealistic as I once thought it to be, since I feel pretty informed. If you have any essential resources for me regarding becoming vegan, I'd love for you to share!
What's been on your plate, darling? I want to know it all! xoxo
