Today I got the most exciting news! Luis surprised me with a trip to Cancun, Mexico for my birthday! I can’t even remember the last time I’ve been there. It’s going to be so nice to finally get “away” for a few days and just UNWIND. My design programs are the first to tell you that I NEED it. I wanted to try something a little different with this post and it goes a little hand-in-hand with how I’ve been feeling – so here goes.
My really awesome friend, Marti once told me “Wake up, we’re dreaming” and it’s stayed with me throughout the year. Sometimes I’m so fully engulfed in my work, rushing to do photoshoots, putting together outfits, whatever little thing is disconnecting me from… well, reality. Our surroundings are so surreal sometimes that they feel like dreams. This year has been so incredible and I sometimes stop and wonder how much better it would have been if I’d stopped “sleeping” and actually lived in that moment. Or tried to not be so very consumed in getting the right shot or finding the perfect typeface. Well, this post is dedicated to my goal for the new “me” and the new year. I want to really engage more into my surroundings. Put the phone down and enjoy the view through my eyes and not the lens. While I’ll always continue to bring you the very best content, images and typography, I vow (to myself) that I’ll wake up a little and enjoy the “dream.” – M
