I took a painting class all day yesterday and it felt so good to be studying art again. I was remembering so much! I hadn’t taken an art class in over ten years and it all started coming back. I’m in a creative flow and I was so inspired, I started several new art projects. Setting aside time to be creative replenishes me and I’m so thankful I took the time to do it.
In family news, we will be celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday this week and hosting a small dinner party. It’s hard to believe that baby girl came into my life that long ago but it’s been such a joy. I’m so excited to celebrate with her and watch her make plans for her future.
