Hey, hey! As you can see, we’ve had a little makeover on the blog, so I wanted to leave a note for you all about why that went down. If you clicked for the free printable (it’s ok, I still like you), feel free to skip to the bottom to download.
Why the name change?
A few months ago I opened a shop on Etsy called “Darling & Sailor Design Suite.” I’ve been having so much fun designing over there that eventually it just made sense to merge my projects under one coherent brand name.
What does Darling & Sailor mean?
I’ve always loved the poem by E.E. Cummings that reads:
I love you much
more than anyone
on the earth
and I like you
better than every
thing in the sky.
After my sailor and I got married, he gave me a lovely, enormous sign with that poem painted on it to hang on our wall.
When he is at sea, he reminds me look at the sign he gave me and remember that that I’m his darling, and that I’m loved. So ultimately this name has a deeper significance to me, and is well-suited to the content of this blog.
Is anything else on the blog changing?
No, this is primarily an artistic change. The blog will remain focused on sharing California life and style, travel, and the other things that have always interested me enough to share, including books and home decor.
