This blog post idea is borrowed from Emily. It’s just randoms about what is going on currently in my life.

LOVING // Emily Jefford’s beautiful artwork. I just found her recently and am so inspired by not only her artwork but the way she runs her business. You need to check out her paintings.


READING // right now lots of book on caring for adoptive children… “Parenting the Hurt Child” by Gregory Keck & Regina Kupencky, “The Connected Child” by Karyn Purvis, and “Becoming a Family: Promoting Healthy Attachments with Your Adoptive Child” by Lark Eshleman are some of the books I’ve just read or am in the process of reading.

WAITING FOR // our travel dates to China. We won’t know when exactly we travel until 2-3 weeks before we leave, so it will be rather last-minute. I cannot wait to find out!

EXCITED ABOUT // some new sign designs that I’ve been working on. I go through creative spurts and dry spells and right now the creativity is flowing.

TRYING TO // eat better and work out.  Blah.  I was doing well with it last year but somewhere around fall I lost motivation and just stopped. This week I finally put my big-girl pants on and am trying to eat at least three salads per week for lunch and work out at least three times a week. My favorite way to work out is pilates first thing in the morning.

WORKING ON // ideas for some paintings on canvas. It’s funny how ideas formulate in my brain and stay there until I can create something out of them. The ideas won’t leave until I’ve done something with them. I like this part of the process where the ideas are just swimming and working themselves out.

WEARING // too many old t-shirts and jeans. I’ve been home a lot lately and haven’t had a reason to try very hard.

PLANNING // how I’m going to manage the business after our youngest comes home. It will be a challenge for sure, but I’m taking steps to make things easier for myself.

LEARNING // that taking care of myself needs to be a higher priority than it has been.

DREAMING OF // sunshine and slow summer days. I love living in a place that has four seasons, but I’m ready for warmer weather and some vitamin D.
