gadgets for the car

Today Amy and I are going to zip around town in a rental car to distribute our summer D*S print project (stay tuned for details tomorrow!) so I’m already planning a car music mix. Living in NYC, driving a car isn’t really a given, so I cherish any chance I have to roll down the…

warm & toasty

It may be hot and muggy here in Brooklyn, but last week in Portland, it was cool, misty and perfect for long-sleeved shirts. As much as I love a hot, sticky summer (and weirdly, I do), it was nice to get a break and wrap myself in warmer fabrics. While Amy and I were walking…
