I don't know about you but..


...I'm feeling 32.

One more trip around the sun, and I'm feeling good about what's to come for me on the next one. Do I have an injured foot? Yes. Do I have a fabulous new job? No. Am I working on fixing both those things? YES. Because 2014 is the year of MAKE and I can make it all great. Today = a trip to the Knitting and Stitching Show (yarn! thread! fabric!) and fondue for dinner at a Swiss place in Soho (because my husband knows what makes me tick. Cheese and fiber are both good places to start).

I slept in and had a brownie for breakfast. Life is good.
