CONFESSION: OK, it's pretty obvious by now that I'm a terrible blogger. I don't post nearly enough --partially because I speak my mind more often on Instagram (follow me @katlawton), and partially because it just takes a lot of energy to write these things. And let's be honest, Pinterest and IG have made it super easy to share photos, inspiration and thoughts so quickly. So I guess I drag my feet when it comes to these things, but recognize the value of posting here. It's pretty eye-opening to hear so many clients referencing thoughts I've shared here in my journal. I call it a journal rather than a blog, because I don't write often enough to justify calling it an actual blog. But when I do write, I share things that I've been stewing over in my mind for a while. Things that have been inspiring me, things that are happening in my life, or things that drive me nuts in the design community. It's a place where I've found my voice, where I can be the genuine me without all the fake facades social media masks over, and where I can be a little vulnerable. So I guess writing here seems more personal, more fitting, and more real. So, that's why I call it a journal.
With all that aired out, let's also stop and talk about the title of this post, "Late Summer Haze." Yup, it's October 5th today and I'm still talking about summer??? Well, that's because I started this post on July 25th and never finished it. Ugh! There are too many good things here not to share. So who cares, I'm sharing them anyway... fall leaves in my front green yard (thank you honey @Max Leinbach) and all.
Alright, that's a wrap for now. Back to work I go!
