Care for a beverage? Of Moxie and Nog
Nine years ago today, Kathy said, probably in a blog comment, "I like you, let's be friends and make pretty things on the Internet." And so it went... nine years, well over 500 sites, one book, six cities, two kids (hers), one bunny (mine) and a whole lot of coffee later, here we are... and I couldn't be happier.
I never really knew what I wanted to do "when I grew up". Well, I take that back. I wanted to be a vet, a singer, a ballerina, an artist, a choir director, and back to a singer again. But I never really picked one. Then one fateful day in the late 90's, I started a hokey website on Angelfire.com and lo, the internet bug bit me. HARD. A few years later, I started a blog, met Kathy with whom I became instant friends and ta da! Blog Moxie was born.
Lucky for me, Kathy knows unabashed raw talent when she sees it. And, of course, modesty. ;-)
I am so grateful to be doing this job. I'm grateful for Kathy. And I'm grateful for the design and development communities, especially the Expression Engine community, for supporting us and being so awesome over the years. I love my job and our clients. I love how each day brings something new and the ever-evolving technology keeps me on my toes.
We're going a little retro today and re-posting our signature cocktail we developed one night in Palm Beach in 2005. After several cocktails, I mean attempts, this is what we came up with, photographed here next to Buddha. Because that's totally normal.
Fill a big martini glass with ice and water, set aside. Fill a martini shaker with ice and all your liquors. Shake well, vigorously, but not so much that the ice becomes a crushed mess. Empty the ice water out of your martini glass and strain your cocktail into the glass. You could rim the glass with pretty pink sugar or cocoa, or drop a fresh raspberry in the bottom of the glass, if you desire. Drink. Repeat if you've got a snack and a designated driver.
Who knows what the next nine years will bring... but there's no doubt, we'll be doing it with moxie!
Ok, so it's not really a magazine. It's barely even a newsletter. "Low-volume" is an understatement. We save the mailing list for the really exclusive stuff or the really BIG stuff. So, you can feel confident signing up without fear of us flooding your inbox.
We may be bijou, but we're the cat's pajamas, so we're only able to accept a limited number of projects per season. We encourage you to submit your inquiry early.
Joelle is available for projects starting in Fall & Winter 2014 and beyond.
Kathy is on hiatus and no longer accepting projects.
Oops! We ran out of vacation time over the holidays and it's time to get back to our clients. This section is still in progress, but it will be finished very soon.
