I used to do a series here on the blog called Groundhog Thoughts, which was really just a compilation of all the random things I was thinking about, had seen, read, or had popped up on my radar. It also just encapsulates how I’m feeling when I’m stuck between worlds I guess. When there are so many thoughts and feelings pulling me in all different directions, that I’m not sure whether I want more winter or early spring. You know how it is. It feels like those moments of build up before the groundhog comes out of their hole and either is scared by their shadow or faces the day bravely.
Have I taken this Monday metaphor too far? Likely. Thanks for bearing with me anyways.
Today especially feels like a very overwhelming day, so here are all of my groundhog thoughts:
1. Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
2. Yesterday our dear friends Amit & Casey got married. It was epic. Just like them. Can’t wait to share more pictures this week.
3. The rest of our weekend was lovely celebrating our dear friends. Here’s a few shots from the weekend/my random thoughts that go with them:
On Friday we had a lovely ladies knitting night. My friend Lisa (aka master knitter) taught some of the basics to my friend Amanda. It was a cozy evening filled with laughter and concentration (and Lisa’s epic almond cake).
I love knitting so much. Recently I’ve been really dreaming about taking my knitting to the next level. Here are a couple of the knitters whose blogs I’m adoring right now:
On Saturday night, we had a little pre-wedding shindig at Southern Pacific Brewing Company. Excuse the flash. It is dark and magical in there!
Immediately afterwards, I went to my first Drag show at the legendary Marlena’s. How have I lived in San Francisco for nearly five years and never been to a Drag show? Excellent question. Oh what I have been missing.
And last week, there were so many inspiring/interesting/beautiful posts in blogland. Here’s a few that I love:
+ Stacy’s post on local letterpress shop: Rebecca Peters Press. I also recently got new business cards made by Rebecca, and I highly recommend her.
What do you think? I love them! Can’t wait to give them out at Alt Summit this week.
+ This thoughtful post by our friend T.C. about DIY culture and blogging. He and our friend Jonathan have just started writing this awesome series for Oakland Local.
+ And from Friday before last, EZ’s Alt Summit Survival Kit. EZ was one of the bloggers I had the pleasure to meet at Alt Summit last year. She is absolutely lovely. Just like her blog Creature Comforts. As the green obsessed lady I am, I also loved her mint pinterest inspiration post.
Happy Monday friends. Hope you’ve enjoyed this random roundup of thoughts & moments.
