rhubarb blush + making it happen
Friday has arrived! After a false alarm a few weeks ago where I found a few stalks of rhubarb at the store and then spent the following weeks searching for more, I think they’re finally here. For real. Almost immediately, I whipped up a batch of simple syrup and started mixing drinks. This one, paired with a little lemon, gin and soda water, is one of my favorite ways to start the season.
Speaking of a new season, I wanted to share some exciting news with you. After 3 years of blogging and a little over a year designing and publishing Remedy Quarterly on the nights and weekends, I’ve decided to make it a little more serious. Starting this week, I will be going down to 4 days a week at my real job as a graphic designer and dedicating one full day a week to my side projects. I can’t tell you how excited I am for this! I look forward to exploring new things and making my passion projects bigger and better…I’ve dubbed it my “making it happen” plan.
Cheers! To spring, rhubarb and making it happen!
