Welcome to a very special “Instagram Sunday,” here at Findingravity.
Before we get started, I’d like to take a moment to introduce and break down my new blog design for everybody. Over the last two weeks I have been developing this blog design idea with Melissa from Cherry On Top Design. The design went live last night and I couldn’t be happier. She managed to incorporate so many parts of my personality and I am truly impressed. She tied in my love of travel with the globe logo, and my love of writing with the calligraphy, and feather quill pens on my side bar.
-The first feather quill pen is my follow button. I suggest you click it. You know, because we’re buds. (This is currently being fixed, don’t fret. I have added a temporary follow button at the top of my side bar).
-The second feather quill pen is above my new button. Feel free to grab my button for your blogroll if you enjoy reading my nonsense. You know, because we’re buds.
Melissa also designed five social media buttons of my choice for my website
-The first is twitter, feel free to follow me and give me a shout! I’m one of those people who swore they would never use twitter. Guilty.
-The second is an Email short cut. My email can also be found with my twitter handle in the menu above, underneath contacts.
-The third is my pinterest shortcut. My pinterest user name is Findingravity. Weird, right? Feel free to pin anything you see on my site, just be polite and credit Findingravity. Thanks, fistbump.
-The fourth shortcut is to my webstagram account, where you can
stalk find all of my instagram photos. I don’t actually post all of them on Instagram Sunday, so if you want more, that’s where you’ll find them.
-The last social media button is my personal favorite, 8tracks. I’ve discussed 8tracks before on my blog, but for anyone who needs a refresher, it’s the bomb diggity. I’m a music fanatic. I suppose it was love at first chord when I received my guitar for my 10th birthday. 8tracks was a key ingredient to Blake and I surviving long distance. One of the first conversations Blake and I had was about music. This was after I attempted talking to him at a rugby game, during which he rudely blew me off, but that’s a story for another day. Once we started dating across oceans, we made 8tracks mixes every week, and sent them to each other. You can check out the mixes I created by clicking the 8tracks!
So that’s that! Thank you Melissa, you are so talented.
After work on Monday, I took a trip to a vintage music store in Maine. As I said above, music is a staple in my life. I love looking through old records, and something I’d like to someday invest in is a vinyl record player.
After three or four days of furniture musical chairs, my new work space is complete! In order to make this happen, I had to move a DVD stand, a book case (twice), and a marble top side table. Our apartment looked like a scene from Twister. I also realize that the chair doesn’t match the desk, but I haven’t bought a chair yet, so that’s a chair from our kitchen table.
Spring is 9 days away, and this week it was 55 degrees. That might not seem like a huge deal, but here in New England where we endure sub zero temperatures, it’s safe to say everyone was pretty stoked. Blake actually wore shorts today.
The week ended with a get together at a local organic pizza restaurant with some friends. This get together has become tradition whenever we all happen to be in the same place at the same time. At this restaurant, they leave paper and crayons on the tables (like every other restaurant) except they actually slip what you draw into the covers of the menus! We have turned this into game, where we pass the piece of paper around the table and every person adds something wild to the picture, until the meal comes. Here is a picture of our top hat wearing, red haired, yellow toothed, fire breathing man.
Creativity at its finest.
I hope you all had a wonderful week. I have a few more projects on the conveyor belt for this week. Stay tuned!
