new york part 3

we began early the next day at a press review. then we headed out to cover the noho design district events. but before we arrived at our first destination, we stumbled upon this: weird. i loved these pieces by elyse graham that we saw at the standard east village. we continued on our noho mission […]

new york part 2

yep, this happened, people. the week started out with a bang. and by bang, i mean martha stewart. design milk was invited to an event at the martha stewart offices entitled “dialogues in design: a new york preview on ambiente 2013.” the event was really cool and featured nicolette naumann of messe frankfurt who might just […]

new york part 1

6am flight to ny. what was i thinking?! way too early… ah, i’ve missed you. i stayed at the yotel, a hotel in hell’s kitchen. it’s the land of white and neon purple with teeny, tiny rooms they call “cabins”. it was clean and close to the javitz center, so that’s all that mattered. my […]

back to portland

first blog while back in portland for the new year. hard to believe it’s 2011. 2011. where did the last decade go? ************ it was hard to leave raleigh behind and to say goodbye to my sweet dog. i hate more than anything leaving him.  somehow i think it gets harder each time. ************* flew […]

post travel hangover

i landed in raleigh a couple of days ago and i’ve been in a complete fog. a post travel hangover. perhaps i overindulged in the free first class offerings? whatever it is, it feels just like my dog looks although not as cute.

travel continued

i landed in dallas and immediately started getting texts/emails from people saying that it was snowing like crazy in raleigh. i slowly headed to the skylink train to get to my next terminal. it was early in the evening but the airport felt very empty. and most of the food places were closed.  not that […]

winding down…
