hi guys. i do hope you will forgive me, but i am deeply in need of a day of rest, so no thoughts for a friday today — except the one that says “take care of yourself”. every muscle in my body aches and i have been working seven days a week for far too long without a holiday in — well honestly, i don’t remember my last holiday — a clear sign that i am due for one. so i’m taking today off to try and catch up with all the behind the scenes stuff here. i will be most certainly be back on monday rested and rejuvenated. that is, if i can catch up on my email. since 2006 sfgirlbybay has been a one-woman job, and as you may have seen last week, i am finally hiring an assistant. and in doing so, i hope to alleviate some of the pressures of the day to day administrative duties of running this blog and focus on creativity and fresh content. so, i wish you all a swell weekend and i will see you on monday. poof!
