In 2014 I left my job at Craftland and took a marketing position at a local company, where I get to spend my day promoting downtown. It's a great fit, and though it's been a challenge readjusting to 9-5 life again, it's nice to be able to walk to work and stay connected to the neighborhood.
I continue to make journals, but am also returning to my textile roots and have been knitting and weaving more, as well as exploring embroidery and crewel.
2014 took us to Vietnam and Cambodia, a trip that I still get overwhelmed just thinking about. I actually pause every now and then and think, "I saw the sun rise over Angkor Wat." Amazing.
We also took our annual trip to Portland, Maine during the summer which was delicious, as always.
We visited family and friends in New Jersey, New York and Texas and got an amazing new nephew. We ended 2014 at the MoMA seeing the incredible Henri Matisse: The Cut Outs exhibit.
We rang in 2015 at home, with some bubbly and felt happy. 2014 was a transition year and it felt good to move out of transition mode and back into life's routine.
We kicked off 2015 with an incredible trip to Lisbon and upon returning have been dealing with a particularly snowy and cold New England winter.
I'm excited to get back into blogging mode and will kick things off in my next post with our trip to Lisbon, and the journal that I made for the trip.
