the meetup. february.


Dear January,

Where did you go? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that you are gone. Quite frankly, your coldness hurts my bones. However, your quick departure has left me scrambling to get my goals done so I don't look like a slacker. So I blame you January. It's all your fault. I accept no responsibility. Maybe February will be nicer to me.


January goals:

1. Finish wedding paper suite and send to printer.-- almost done.
2. Design the rest of wedding marketing packet, print and assemble.--just plain failed on that one.
3. Get some sort of shop going.-- Still on the fence on this one. I know I talked about CafePress but I'm just not sure I want to take this on.
4. Make a Facebook fan page.-- done! Are you a fan?
5. Update website.-- hmmm nope. But I have been thinking about how I want to structure it.
6. Small Business Marketing.-- Brochure is half designed in my head. Does that count?
7. Work on a project that I am super excited about but I'm keeping my mouth shut at the moment until things progress!-- THE BALL IS ROLLLLLLING!!! But it's still a secret.

Dear February,

I know your stay is always short but I'm counting on you to be sweet to me. After all you do host Valentine's Day.


February goals:

1. Finish wedding paper suite and send to printer.
2. Brochures-- wedding and small business.
3. Website update.
4. Plan out sample books.

There you have it folks. I'm officially a slacker and going to work on the same things I have been working on for the last couple of months. In my defense, I did have a super busy month in other areas.

team in training. san diego rock and roll.



This past Saturday I started training with Team in Training to run the San Diego Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon on June 6th. The team supports The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help find a stop to leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.

I am excited and nervous all at once. I'm not a runner. Never have been. But I'm looking to challenge myself and what better way to do it than for a great cause. And another plus is getting to travel to a great city like San Diego.

Check out my website and make a donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and help support my participation.

Please forward this post along to anybody who would like to help.

I have also added a widget so you can keep track of my progress right from my blog.

Thanks ya'll and wish me luck in my training.
