Happy Birthday Dear Sarah

Today is my business partner’s birthday and to honor her 28 years of bringing kindness, compassion, and a lot of fart jokes to the world I want to share ten things I learned about Sarah this year that I admire so much:

  1. Sarah is an incredible listener and never makes anyone feel bad about what they’re going through. She respects people’s feelings and offers compassion and perspective to every situation.
  2.  I love Sarah’s experimental personal style. She never worries about what other people think and she broadcasts positivity and confidence. To her, every day is a day to dress up and face the world with her best foot forward.
  3. Sarah is never stubborn. She adapts to change and turns every unexpected turn into an exciting surprise.
  4. Every night working late in the office, a certain point of no return is reached where everything we say to each other is sung in R&B style. I’m gonna print these packing slips girrrlll, I’m gonna print em up and down. I love that she isn’t afraid to be uncool.
  5. Sarah wears color every day. Her life is a daily damn celebration.
  6. I love that Sarah never makes people feel bad for being themselves. I never feel like I’m letting her down by being honest. She lets people have space to grow instead of smothering them with expectations.
  7. Sarah is truly self-confident and believes in the beauty of All The Women.
  8. I love Sarah’s self-awareness and that she works deliberately toward personal growth. She’s not the kind of person who thinks she’s got everything figured out, and I really admire that in a person.
  9. I love a friend who’s not above a little gossip. I appreciate being clued in as to everything going on. We are grandmas.
  10. Sarah is one of the funniest girls I know. Every road trip to market and late night at work is full of uncontrollable laughter and crazy situations that I’ll remember forever. And thanks, Sarah, for always being the lookout.

Happy birthday my dear friend. I’m glad you were born.

when you want to work as remotely as possible: traveling for business

A: Travel is important to me because it helps my morale. It recharges my spirit. Every month or two? I like to get away as often as I can…probably sometimes to the annoyance of my business partner and coworkers. It’s always important to me to find something to work on wherever I go–a reason to make it worth my while from a business perspective–but there are some places I go just to ONLY work.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the office situation, but I’m not sure I’m up for all the coordination it would take. I’m definitely considering it because I’ve never seen Alice so engaged and happy–she plays all day, does art and science camps and activities all over town, and gets lots of time outside, which leads to nice early bedtimes. Smile. I love having her at work after 4 every day and all day on Fridays.

Letter from a reader: Changes and consistency

I am a long time reader of your blog and have seen it through its various incarnations. I wondered if you might find inspiration one day to discuss the changes, i.e., the changes in you. For example (and these are purely from memory, so I may very well be misremembering things or just plain getting things wrong):

A Long Day

1. Woke up and read Dril’s favstar to start my day off on the right foot. Dropped Alice off at her first day of summer art camp—sculpture making at the Joslyn Art Museum. 2. Quick shower and blow-dry before Rebecca Forsyth’s Vintage-Inspired Hairstyling salon training class. 3. Got my hair set with my good friend and former Princess Lasertron model Caitlin. 4. Snacks on Jonathan Adler dishes under beautiful boxes of hair color. 5-6. Rebecca setting and styling Caitlin’s hair. 7. The “after.”
