These spring and summer days have brought us back and forth to the cottage a bit, but we've also been spending time in the city, taking in the warm afternoons and long evenings with slow projects and tasks.
Last December, I posted about the notebooks I planned on using in 2016 to organize my life and my thoughts. It was nice to sit down at the end of a year and think ahead to a fresh start and what all was going to happen.
Here we are! In case you missed it, a while ago I had a recent spurt of inspiration, having to do with having more hands in the shop, spring and cool breezes and green leaves, and re-discovering writing.
I may or may not have mentioned (I thought I did) that I've been doing some marathon letter writing over the last couple of weeks, and getting caught up on some crazy old letters from last...year. It's been one of the most satisfying things I've been doing lately, to finally get those letters sealed up with postage and love and out the door.
One of the things we hope to do with the shop and the blog is to encourage and inspire you to write more. Whether it's writing letters, or writing in your journal, or writing creatively, I hope you can find the physical tools to inspire you, but that you can also read the blog and maybe find some small spark for your writing.
I mean, I've had bubble tea before, but since we've moved here to the East End, there's a bubble tea place not so far, and I've had enough of it to make up for an entire teenage-hood without it. I feel like I'm discovering my Asian roots.
I think I've mentioned somewhere on the blog before that I write in a journal, although I sometimes wish I made more time for it.
