in my defense, it hasn’t been quite a month since my last post. it’s not that i haven’t wanted to post. i really have, as i have been doing a bunch of exciting stuff but i really just haven’t been able to carve out the time for a proper post. so, please accept my apologies. i don’t know if you fellow bloggers out there feel this way, and maybe its because of the advent of quick fixing facebook and twitter, but i am just not satisfied with posting shits and giggles for the sake of posting “something”. i want a post with some meat to it. meat takes time to marinate. am i really now equating blogging to marinating meat? what is wrong with me? i do need to keep in mind that every post does not need to be a “gristly t-bone steak dinner with blood running all over the plate and a baked potato with butter, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits spilling out” kind of post. sometimes it can be a fish taco or a cup of vegetable barley soup post. did i forget to eat lunch or something?
* as a disclaimer, i am a pescetarian.
i feel like this is the first weekend in weeks and weeks that i haven’t been running around in some other state, not as in an altered state of mind, but an actual physical state, as in the united states of america. i have visited every state from maine to tennessee in the past month or so. it’s been exhausting yet terribly exciting and i literally have been living out of a bag that sits next to my bed. it’s all terribly glamourous.
in my travels i have been to the gorgeous state of maine where i laid in a hammock next to a lake and literally ate blueberries off a bush behind my head to new york fashion week for the project runway finale show to nashville tennessee this past weekend to host a fashion show with macy’s. vastly different settings and experiences with all sorts of characters and all super-duper fun.
i have also been getting my “bizz-nizz” on this month, so stay tuned to my website and online shop located at www.jaymccarroll.com for some great new products for the impending autumnal weather and holiday season. i’m talking a bunch of new scarves people!
in the spirit of barley soup, i’m going to try and keep it light and satisfying.
