Hello (Again), World


It’s been a while since I’ve had a blog. I wrote extensively between 2009-2013 before falling out of the habit. At this point I was working on My Morning Routine (which had launched the previous year) and client commissions, leading my blog to falter.

Looking back on some of those earlier posts, with an eye to re-publish some them here, I’m mostly just cringing, though there are some good pieces to be salvaged.

A lot has happened since 2013. I’ve since married and moved to the United States (San Francisco), which, I’ll tell you, is surprisingly un-life-jolting when you’re doing it with the person who is, in fact, your whole life.

Enough of that. I’ll speak to you again soon. ∎
