Ok, so it's been February for about a week now, but I'm doing this anyway. I feel like I started off 2013 at a sprint, and February comes with the promise of finding a steady pace. This month there will be a week-long vacation, new opportunities, and many hours spent learning new things: calligraphy, watercolor, design, how to make a stinking dress I actually want to wear in public. It's cold out there, so I'm enjoying all this time to get the indoor things done while there's no warm and sunny day outside to taunt me. So, welcome February. May your brevity equal richness.
