4Years_Newsletter

About 4.5 years ago I was bored with where I was in life and looking for more. I knew that I enjoyed design and the ability to use creativity as a medium to help others achieve their goals. But I felt strangely disconnected from what I envisioned my design life would be. I’ve never been […]

[by Jessica Watson] Who knew that one night of not being able to get to sleep due to a restless mind would lead to an idea that would connect Baltimore to people all over the world? Late one night, I couldn’t sleep as my mind was plagued with current events and just an eerie understanding […]

2013_inReview

This time last year, I was literally loading up my car and hitting the road. Behind me would be everything that was familiar and comfortable, my good friends and favorite coffee spots, the neighborhood indie theater and the tapas place next door, the promenade connecting the neighborhoods that align the harbor, familiar faces and neighbors. […]

Walking in Memphis

Memphis

After the day long drive from Chicago to Memphis, after nightfall I arrived in the arts/warehouse district of Memphis Tennessee. As usual, I had no idea what to expect, at all. I just knew that Memphis was a city that intrigued me so, with it’s rich history, it’s homage to birthing great musicians, and the […]

And then the unthinkable happened… These are the stories I still tell just so folks know that sometimes the universe does catch me off guard, and also to stress how important it is to be prepared and not panic in the various situations that come your way. On my drive back from New Orleans to […]

Recently a friend of mine informed me that Memphis was about 5.5 hours away from New Orleans. “Just sayin’,” she told me, with a huge hint hint right behind it. The original request was for me to come down that first weekend, after just arriving in Memphis a couple days prior. Instantly, I thought “New […]

Last week I used my personal Facebook account to take a poll and see where everyone thought I should end up for December. You can see the results above. Truth be told, I was originally planning to head to either Asheville NC or Charleston SC. Both would be an awesome way to end the year. […]

From Chicago to Memphis

ChicagotoMemphis

I bid farewell to Chicago on the Sunday morning of daylights savings time. I loaded up on my car on a crisp Autumn morning with the sun peeking gently through the clouds. I got everything into my car, which on more than one occasion has reminded me of the game of Tetris. And I can […]

Chicago City Lights

Chicago1

As you are well aware from previous posts, the drive from Seattle to Chicago can only be described as LONG. Breathtakingly beautiful at times, and then incredibly flat and mundane at others. So the happy medium I’ve chosen to describe it is “LONG.” Yes, in all caps, because it’s appropriate. I arrived in Chicago after […]
