Greetings! I find it hard to believe it is Autumn already. Like Joelle, living in a place where there isn’t much “fall” going on besides the overwhelming Halloween costume display at Target, I still like this time of year. Thinking about it makes me dream of cinnamon pumpkin smells and makes me want to roam around in Williams Sonoma sipping hot mulled cider dreaming up my next pregnant cooking frenzy. Ask any of my friends, I have been craving pumpkin flavored anything for weeks. And candy corn? Bring it on.
The season this year also means I am at the point of no return with regard to my schedule. I am packed to the gills and cannot take any new work due to my impending maternity leave in December. Officially my maternity leave will start probably a week before Christmas and last through April 1st of 2006, though we will be informally “closed” during December wrapping up client work and of course Christmas presents. I’ll be coming back part time in April while I adjust to the new schedule of a working mommy. But never fear, I will return and hopefully with some overflowing new creativity. As for my day to day schedule right now, I am here my usual full time hours. I will be out of my office next week from October 13th – 14th and then will be working remotely for a good portion of the following week October 17th – 20th. I will be immediately available by email during that time.
Thank you to all my clients for the well wishes with my pregnancy and for keeping me occupied with great projects!
