One of the goals on my 101 in 1001 list was to take a calligraphy workshop. I follow a number of calligraphers on Instagram and jumped at the first NYC workshop I saw, taught by Ashley Buzzy. It was so much fun to try something new, sip champagne, and get to know a few fellow New Yorkers. Because the class came with all the necessary supplies, I’ve kept everything out on my desk and gone back to practice a few times since the workshop last week. It’s so nice to step away from my laptop for a few minutes and do something with my hands and it doesn’t help that I think calligraphy is absolutely gorgeous! I still need a lot of practice but I’m slowly getting the hang of it.

  1. I saw on instagram you have a lemon tree!

    “Buy (and subsequently keep alive) a lemon tree for my apartment” isn’t crossed off on your 101/1001 list though.

  2. I took a calligraphy workshop this summer and absolutely loved it! I’m hoping once it starts to get colder and I’m forced to stay inside I will start practicing more. Now i’m on the hunt for a watercolor class 🙂

  3. I’ve admired people with such good handwriting and I’ve been dying to try my hand at calligraphy! I’ll definitely have to look into some classes around me!
