spring break

A long weekend came and went, and all I'm left with is a peeling sunburn. Just kidding. Kinda. Our trip to Miami was really relaxing—full of great food, a birthday celebration, some time with friends and family, and a bit of sun. We stayed at the Shelborne hotel on South Beach for a night, and though the weather didn't always cooperate, we got a quick tour of SoBe and its characters while walking around Collins Avenue and Lincoln Road. Of course I didn't take nearly enough pictures, but here are a couple of colorful shots. Can you tell how much I miss those palm trees?

rodrigo y gabriela

Even without a full-time job, I still dread Mondays. Sure, I get to sink into the comfort of a squishy couch, gobble snacks and do minimal work on my own laptop, but there's no escaping that sense of  gloom that lingers like a weekend hangover. The good news? This Friday kicks off a long weekend in (hopefully sunny) Miami. Enter Rodrigo y Gabriela, whose funky flamenco jams will be getting me through this week of couching and waiting. If you haven't seen the duo's version of "Stairway to Heaven," you're welcome.
