Traditionally I’ve never done gift guides, not really my style, and I’m not a fan of “Best Of” lists either, very subjective and overly time restrictive. This year I’ve decided to put together a week of posts highlighting My Favorite Things, ranging from food, to design, to fashion, to experiences. Might you want to purchase some of these things? Sure, but the point is really to highlight the talented folks who’ve inspired me. Hopefully you can feel equally inspired by their output and take that energy into the new year.
