Good morning chickens! I’m sitting in my usual Saturday morning spot on my second cup of coffee listening to the swoosh of cars on the wet streets below my little condo. Quiet mornings like these are my favorite.
The rain is supposed to dry up soon, which means I’ll be making my way to the River Market for brunch and this week’s veggie haul. Nothing out of the ordinary this weekend for this girl. What are you up to today?
A few links I’ve collected over the week:
This post on Eye Swoon is decadent, dramatic, and styled to perfection.
I crave roasted vegetables this time of year. Dying to try this recipe.
An inspiring read from Design Sponge on Rachel Berks, an LA based graphic designer and owner of Otherwild Goods & Services. She’s created a multipurpose space – a storefront, a studio, and a community space for empowering local artists. Her quote, “The biggest lesson I have learned is to believe in myself and in my vision,” really resonated with me. Doubting yourself and your vision is a common struggle for creatives. It’s so important to remember that trusting your intuition and putting in the time will always pay off in the end.
On a related note, as a graphic designer this made me giggle.
Kansas City has been making my heart burst with pride lately. The Royals in the World Series and our very own Matt Baldwin as a Council of Fashion Designers of America finalist and inside the November issue of Vogue. The joy and support this city has for it’s teams, entrepreneurs, doers, and dreamers is palpable, infectious, and incomparable.
