In the midst of winter, I found there was in me, an invincible summer. – Albert Camus
Can’t remember the last winter in the PNW that was this sunny and dry. Not complaining. I am digging it, immensely. This just might be the first winter in a long time that I haven’t succumbed (yet) to the blues. It’s turning out to be a full-on winter of possibility rising up, a bubbling of energy, biz projects underway, family adventures in the wings.
Other than work and family, it’s been a pretty quiet time. Been working a lot on my upcoming e-course
(just a few weeks away!), writing a ton of lessons, thinking about it constantly (inspired!), and generally pouring my heart into making it excellent. Feels really, really good.
I was a single mama for many days as John was out of town on a big adventure. Man. I have so much respect for single parents out there. I must have had a million cups of caffeinated tea to help keep me going. Super early mornings (John is the morning person in our household) paired with working in the evenings had me zonked. Totally worth it, but definitely tired. Loved our mama/son time though, I have to say. That kid has my heart.
Totally random, but I walked into a Dr. Marten shoe store the other day for the first time in probably 20 years and was shocked to see the same exact pair of shoes I wore all through high school. The design and color are the same! I fell in love with them all over again and brought them home with me. I’m leaning more and more back into what simply delights me. And these red shoes light me up. It all matters.
My friend and collaborator Beth Nicholls
(Kempton) and I have had the privilege of writing for this amazing publication since it began early last year. The latest issue is out and friends, it’s good! Lots of great articles. We are honored to be included!
Received the most gorgeous dreamcatcher from Rachael Rice
. If you look closely, you’ll see the “trust” feather in the mix (my word of the year). I am in love, love, love with this and can’t wait hang it up. She is one talented soul, that Rachael.
