Wow—so much has happened in the last two weeks: I’ve been completely buried in freelance work, we’ve gone from tropical summer to full-on winter here in SF, visitors have come and gone, and I’ve barely had time to keep up with the blog—let alone carve a pumpkin. And now I’m taking off for the East Coast for a little R&R. I doubt there will be any roses to stop and smell, so maybe more like pine needles and crisp air. I’m hoping to come back refreshed, inspired and a little more balanced than when I left. Enjoy the end of October, and Happy Halloween!
