Come Together

Friends! Family! Random strangers who happen upon this blog! I have something VERY important to talk you about, so get ready . . .

These are two of my favorite individuals on the planet:

This is what they do:

And this is what they sound like:
So good, right?! Their names (for those of you who might not know) are Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino and they are seriously two of the most amazing and talented people I have ever met. As we speak they are in the process of recording some of their new material for an EP that will be out later this year and GUESS WHAT?! We can all be a part of making that happen!

Here are Ian and Chad to tell you a little more about themselves and what's going on. (Just as a heads up, when you watch this video you may find yourself wanting to want to sign over your bank account in support of their project. That's great and if anyone understands those feelings it's me, but just keep in mind that you still need to eat, keep a roof over your head, etc. Got it? Good. Now you can watch . . . ).

In all seriousness, any amount you can contribute will be amazing and greatly appreciated. Go here to donate and find out more about the awesome rewards they're offering in return for your support. Note that the estimated delivery date for the music is next month! That means, you back the project today (or within the next 9 days) and sometime in September you could have the music you helped make on your ipod. That is a super fast turn around as far as Kickstarter projects go . . . ;)

Please and thank you!!

P.S. Aren't those the coolest t-shirts you've ever seen?!

Leaving Home

Well, it's been two weeks since I moved out of The Knutson's house. It's strange that I don't live there anymore. I keep having dreams where I find myself in the house or my old room and then I remember that's not my life anymore, so I try to sneak out before anyone sees me. I lived in that house a few weeks shy of 4 years, that's the longest I've lived anywhere save the house I grew up in. The first week was was really tough, especially when I was driving down the street and saw the new nanny driving the kids in the van. That was pretty much the worst thing ever and I tried not to think about too much to keep the tears to a minimum. Luckily I have some pretty amazing friends who not only took me in but also let me talk things through.

Virginia truly has become my home. I love it so, SO much and frequently question my decision to leave. Then I remember when I left Draper. I has an amazing group of friends, the perfect living situation, a new job offer, and was dating more than I ever have in my entire life. Life was amazing and it didn't make any logical sense for me to leave but it turned out to be exactly the right thing to do. There have been so many parallels between my move to DC and my move to New York, I can only assume this will turn out the same. Right? ;)

And in case you were wondering, I miss these two like CRAZY!!!!!

Life Less Ordinary

There are some big changes around the corner. 
A lot of them. 
So I thought I'd start with something simple.
A haircut: 

Now for something slightly more life-altering:

 I'm excited beyond words.
I'm a little bit nervous.
