All Good Things

Blogging, what an adventure, you have been! I can honestly say these last 14 months have constituted the longest period in my life of sticking with a daily task. While self-congratulatory, I do feel I’ve this small accolade to myself because I’ve always been one to struggle with follow through. So many grand ideas, or grandly entertainingly ideas, that stay in the embryonic stage, you know?

The Late Break has been a true outlet, a medium for me to share my thoughts, commentary, photos, and general reaction to life as a 21st century girl. For those who have been readers along the way–thank you! Sincerely.

I suppose by now it may be evident from this slightly sentimental tone that some news or change is about to be announced. Indeed it is! I’ve shared my new venture idea already–taking my typography to the next level–and the time has come for me to pause in my daily Late Break activities in order to concentrate more fully on this next chapter.

Today is my last Late Break posting. Right now, I’m fairly certain I will be launching a new site soon with an online shop, and it’s own blog. Perhaps I should simply consider this a shift and renaming of what will remain a good time online, right?

Thanks, Late Break, for a place to post 443 consecutive musings! I hope to continue blogging and promoting fun stuff in the future. While this transition doesn’t exactly entail a “revolution” in the fullest sense, in many ways it does for me. Reimagining, editing, and relaunching is my next project–I hope you’ll keep me in mind! While good things do come to an end, there’s something inevitably awesome about new beginnings.




*When the new site is launched, info will be shared here as the final post. Thanks!

Seattle’s quirky, stylish, and entertaining neighborhoods in typography!


(I even already have a frame! This thing is going up…)

This is part of my Spring Refreshing Campaign at home. It’s not really a full-fleged thing yet, but it’s going to be…That’s the plan.

Sprucing up the scene at home seems a logical place to start. Chic & organized without, chic & organized within? Here’s to hoping!


Design Department: Sound!

Something you may not know is that I help Elton direct a high school choir. Elton is the creative genius behind the ensemble, specializing in gospel, jazz, and contemporary choral arrangements (of his own arranging! Proud much, am I? YEAH). The whole business is quite entertaining and currently, we’re prepping for our spring music tour to San Francisco, which we…


The Weekender: Hey there!

It’s the weekend again! Is it becoming clear that we are weekend people? We really are. This morning when I woke it, I said “Hey!” to the sun to get things going… A weekend doodle was in order to commemorate the moment. After this, we took off to enjoy ourselves some early spring weather downtown, with bright colors more in…

On a day like today:


It was another delightfully sunny day here, a rare and ecstatically appreciated gift in January. Seattle is notorious for these glorious glimpses which remind us this is a preternaturally beautiful place and that we adore it here…until the next rain cloud again covers the sun and the colors. Then suddenly I’m quite comfortable lazing in bed for indeterminate hours (Netflix, anyone? If not, that’s ok, I can marathon better alone).  But then the rays peak through, you can be sure I’m up and joining the congregation in counting them blessings in a praise style worthy of the church pews. Only we’re outside, and loving it.



Midweek Mantra: Más y Mejor

What do I wish for your midweek, as well as for mine?

¡Más y Mejor!

This translates as, “More & Better!” which I think we can agree, is always desirable, no?

So, not excluding full on hedonism or slight indulgence, depending on your position in the spectrum of wildness, today’s doodle is for you:
