Can we talk for a second about November? Because it felt like this to me. We lost my spitfire of a grandmother in late October, and between traveling home for her funeral, going to Lisbon with APW, then heading home again for Thanksgiving, I think I’ve seen my house a total of ten days since then. And it has made this pregnant lady all kinds of tired (physically, emotionally, etc.). So I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t really nice to come home and settle into the routine of work this week. And because APW never fails to deliver, work this week meant putting together APW’s first ever holiday themed shoot in partnership with ModCloth. Normally my job involves a lot of sitting behind a computer and sending out emails, contracts, and invoices, so getting to spend two days inside the Oh Happy Day studio (who graciously hosted us) while playing dress up and watching Meg skate around on one foot while shouting into a megaphone was like getting a golden ticket into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. It was still exhausting (don’t let the GIFs fool you), but the kind of exhausting that involves playing with this giant candy cane and then getting donuts at the end of the day.
So here’s to December. May you be boring. But, like, with a side of roller skates.
And with that, it’s your happy hour. So get to it.
