Hello Again

"Home Love" 2011
5X7 original 
available here

So I've obviously been on an unannounced break from the blog.  Whew! Its been almost 3 months since my last post.  This has been a particularly full season of life for me, and I found that I needed to prioritize.  I am now starting the second half of my graduate internship, and just as I had predicted, I reached the halfway point and am just so ready to be done.  I find that I have to work more and more at keeping up my motivation for being creative in my therapy sessions with clients.  My three year old has transitioned into full time "No Mommy"-mode and takes lots of patience, consistency, and tons of activities to successfully get through the day.  I've also been very very preoccupied with another BIG project that I have been working on for the last few months.  This one has taken over almost everything else, and in many ways has drained much of my creative spirit. 

Yes that's right.  Baby # 2 is growing and currently demanding a lot of my attention, well mostly ALL of my energy.  Its very hard to feel motivated about painting when all you want to do is nap.  We are super excited about our little apple (that's the arbitrary item that the books assign to a 4month old fetus' size).  God willing, this little one is due to arrive in mid-November.  My little man is going to be a big brother!

So I have been practicing the discipline of slowing.  Taking time to sit and be and just take each moment one at a time. My energy has slowly started to return, and I am really excited that the start of the summer will soon bring much more artsy creativeness my way (the fact that my husband will be off all summer and more available for entertaining our son being a HUGE factor in this).  So I hope to have lots more fun stuff to show you that I am working on very soon.  Dont be alarmed if much of it is a bit nursery/mommy-themed.  That's just where my life is right now.  Thanks for sticking with me through my much needed time away.  Your support has always been a blessing to me.
