I am working from home. I take a break to get something to eat. I am walking back in toward the coffee table which is pulled up to the couch (where I have been sitting cross-legged as I plug away on the minutia), carrying my 12 Kalamata olives (only for the very brave because they pack a powerful flavor sensation) and my 1/2 avocado which has been sprinkled with torn cilantro leaves, crushed-between-my-fingers Kosher salt and had lime juice squeezed over the top (I mean, seriously – your mouth should be watering right now!).
I smile when I see this:
Because ~ this is what Luke Bodley (genius boy) sees across the table when we are in meetings. What a happy (and pretty darn well-coordinated) pile of stuff!
Oh yeah, baby. Luke doesn’t just get his color and design inspiration out of the air! He sees my computer, my pen bag and pens, my Sea & Ski lip stuff, my meeting notebooks, my coffee mug and my planner. And we all see the finished product! I truly don’t TRY to make this happen…these colors just show up in my life these days.
I’m just kidding. He doesn’t need my help. Luke is a genius designer/marketing/festival-producing kid and we just happen to be in sync on retro-modern, flower-child colors right now. Plus he loves that Colorado-blue sky and I love spring-green grass and those things just cause an exuberantly colorful explosion inside…which then appears! I really LOVE his designs!
By the way: The planner is opened to July and there is only one thing on it: Heaven Fest on July 31st!
