It’s summer! And my heart is happy for it. I’ve been riding my trusty blue bike, waking up early, and enjoying + savoring it. Things are slowing down, not much on the schedule, and I can feel the exhales and deep breaths.
This past weekend was one for the record books. Beautiful weather, including a warm breeze. Hammock time. TV time (we recently got our first ‘smart tv’ and I’m digging into the Magnolia Network shows!). Art making time. Garden time. Good food. And just a lot of sitting around on the porches.
So simple. So lovely and just right.
We’re doing some house and yard project this summer, including painting our house! We’re going for an off-white with black trim and cedar stains on the architectural details. I’ll keep you posted and share some before and afters, too.
Sending summer love your way,
PS: I’m closing the doors to Art Dates with Kelly Rae + Friends this week. They won’t open again until next year, so please hop in if your heart is nudging you toward more creativity! We’re having so much fun!
Here are a few love notes that I’ve received this week from folks who just joined:
“I am having so much fun with all these videos Kelly Rae!!”
“Ohhh, Kelly Rae! I am loving the new art date format!”
“Really enjoyed this month’s studio and life update. You are such a positive force in the world of life. Love how you are embracing aging. “
“This is so much fun. I am happy that I will get some inspiration every month!”
“I’m delighted to be here. I really enjoyed watching this month’s tutorial. It is inspiring just to see you play.”
“I feel like I’m reconnecting with an old friend. So so happy to have this in my life. Just watching the intro videos gave me the warm fuzzies. Thank you! “
“I’m new here and really loving these art dates! Thank you for sharing your studio and your heart with us.”
“I love how I can come here each day or as often as I can for a retreat.”
