Jet set.

In the month of August, I've logged more than my usual (or fair share, for that matter) of miles in the sky. Back and forth between LAX and JFK- twice! The second time for work, the first for pleasure- and family.

The first trip: Two nights in Brooklyn (thanks, Meghan & Chris!), one night in Manhattan (see you again soon, Ace Hotel!) and then five nights in Boston. Whew!

It was my first time in Mass., and my first time taking a real train. I grew up around light rail systems, and have always lived somewhere where I could hear the freight trains in the distance, but have never had the occasion to travel by train. It all seemed very East Coast, and a very nice alternative to flying.

The second trip was a quick, four-day jaunt to NYC again, for the New York International Gift Fair. Now, if you've ever seen me in a room full of cool stuff (or follow my Pinterest boards then you know how excited I get about seeing new products! The show did not disappoint.

Our company's booth was in the Studio section of the show, which showcased the best and most well-designed products out there. So much fun, so much to see... and so little time. Definitely made me miss the days of working as a buyer for independent shops.

But for now.. I'm back on the West Coast, and back to normal life. For now. :)
