my environment is feeling quite cozy lately. i love all the sunlight this apt gets. and i especially cherish my space where i create. it’s chaotic, calming, messy, and healing all at once. notice the A.R.T. letters high above the window. they were a gift from the extraordinary laini who painted them. oh, what a treat it was to open that box so many months ago.

i used to rearrange our furniture all of the time. though i absolutely loved playing with decor and arrangements, it would drive john nuts when he came home and i had changed everything around for the umpteenth time. since discovering art, my furniture rearranging has drastically decreased, but i had the urge yesterday to redo the living room. so, here it is all rearranged with a different rug (thank you, alexandra!), and some simple changes, like an old throw quilt (thanks, mom) on the couch. i wake up in the mornings and stumble out of our dark bedroom into this room, so full of light with it’s yellow walls and cheerful colors.

“begin today”
in my etsy boutique

inspired by my thoughts about self care yesterday, i choose to begin today. bikram yoga, reading Foolsgold (so good, thanks to teesha’s blog for the recommendation), a bike ride, some creating, resting, business calls, candles, music, a phone date, and some journaling, too. ahhh, the balance of days like today!

the smallness of beginning, of making one tiny change in the right direction, is huge to me. huge.

what would you like to begin today?
