Life has been crazy and, as usual, Affichomanie has fallen to the back burner. I’m okay with that. I’m just going to write when I feel like writing and keep it casual. I really enjoy looking back on my old Manie posts and remembering what was going on in my life at different times. It’s like a more detailed Timehop.

My blog writing time lately has been spent over at Launching Noir has been a blast and I couldn’t have done it with a better person, my partner-in-crime, sister from another mister, Colette. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and can’t wait to see where we can take this business.

This week I went to Indiana for work. The trip was incredibly productive and fun. And it was my entrance into the world of airline points which will be fun to have after my trip to the Philippines next month. The idea of traveling to the other side of the world just blows my mind. I’m a little freaked out. But also pretty dang excited. Honestly, I’m just really going to miss Bryce and Beatrix. I don’t like being away from home for one night let alone a week and a half in another country. It’ll be great though…at least, that’s what I keep telling myself.

Anyway, here’s a photo history of what’s been happening in my life since my last update.
