Dear Junior Designers

Remote (Working) Controller

(Written for Likable Local)

In 1999, the first generation of the Blackberry was introduced. All of a sudden, business people everywhere were working from home on Sunday nights while reading email and mentally preparing for Monday. Fast forward 17 years, and six iPhone versions later, and working remotely is now as simple and commonplace as working from the office, whether your office is six or six-thousand miles away.

An Unruffled State

I walked away from NYC. I walked away from the crazy and the hard and the nonstop running that you have to do to keep up. I knew I was leaving money on the table. I knew it would be a challenge. I knew some days I would wonder 'what if?!'.

My Mantra

I believe in the soul.
Following the heart. Handwritten notes. And symmetry. 

I believe in working hard (from anywhere), and playing harder (everywhere). 

I believe in happy hour. Dancing in the living room. Haagen-Dazs vanilla. Climbing trees. BIG dogs. Mind-numbing, body paralyzing naps. And daydreaming.

I believe in black sharpies. Red tulips. And seersucker.

I believe that Sundays are made for an unshowered, late breakfast, football and the newspaper. (Complete with dog & boy when possible.)

I believe in the best of worlds, friends and family are one in the same. Summer nights are made for beer and baseball. And Coke is exponentially better than Pepsi.

I believe that its totally okay to be a work in progress.
And that bottles of wine, old friends and back porches mix well.

I believe that pearls are appropriate any time. As are oxford blue shirts. And the sky is Carolina Blue because God is most certainly a Tar Heel.

I believe that some people walk in the rain, and others just get wet.

I believe in spontaneity. College football complete with tailgating. The sound of the ocean. And in the healing power of sun + salt water.

I believe in laughing when you can and apologizing when you should.

I believe in mad, passionate, make-you-crazy kind of love. Creativity. Doing what you love. And happily ever now.
