A Bump in the Road

I've been coasting through my days, not living up to the expectations I have for myself and inevitably reached the "That's Enough!" point. Getting back to action these past few weeks feels good. At first you think you are going to feel better by taking it easy but things start piling up, you let your creative juices run dry and your laundry pile turns into a mountain.

When you add up all the wasted minutes in your day you realize how many minutes you have to put towards something that is going to make you happy. My blog makes me happy, getting together with old and new friends makes me happy, playing Mouse Trap with my boys makes me happy, watching a movie with Jeremy makes me happy - taking care of ME makes me happy.

Sometimes that bump in the road can send you soaring if you let it.

Sneak Peek

I mentioned in my last post that I am working on an online magazine with my good friend Sandra. Visit the place holder page to read the mission statement - it embodies everything you are going to find in the pages we are creating.
My pocket stones (pictured above) are going to be featured in one of the articles plus some other goodies from me (vintage love, accessible fashion and some illustrations).
The premier issue of Floze will be available for your reading pleasure June 2011!
