Canyon Drive

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

I took a drive through the canyon last weekend and it was exactly needed. Windows down, cool air, music blaring. The colors are already turning showing off my most favorite time of year. There's something about the outdoors that gets my head on straight. And a good song too. That does the trick.

Priest Lake

Saturday, June 28, 2014

The traditional family reunion at Priest Lake, Idaho was a success. Lots of sun, sailing, cutie babies, kayaks, food, and way too short as usual. Still is my favorite place in the world. Somehow I didn't get a picture of you did that happen?

Introducing my newest little niece.  She gave us a bit of a scare from the start so having a photo like this of her is something to really be grateful for. To state the obvious, life is precious. 

And I want one of my own. Someday. Not today. But I understand why parents blow up their feed with pictures of baby.  Cause how could you not?

Back again.

I've been gone SO SO long.  I got frustrated with the blogging thing and lost my creativity.  Its funny how I stopped feeling creative, but never stopped wanting to be creative.  I just feel...stuck.  I haven't been making time to do creative things.  Winter blues I suppose...that happens though right? We lose ourselves.  But here I am, desiring to be better, to do better, to be creative.  I went to the bookstore to splurge and buy the book Creative Block (which I love btw!) and the guy working asked me if I was an artist.  A million thoughts ran through my head like, "Well I want to be an artist" or "I just like artsy things" but instead I replied, "Yes, I am."  Wow! That may seem a little silly but it was so nerve racking to say out loud that I'm an artist. It felt good though.  And no matter how much I have fought against it, I'm just not happy not being an artist.  Its just who I am.

I've gone back and forth a million ways about what to blog about.  That's what I do though...I get these ideas and want to switch completely what I'm doing and start over.  I've been thinking lately about just documenting things that inspire me.  I don't really want to think about how many followers I can get, how to get pinned on Pinterest, or how to create an online presence. All good things, but I need this to be something that I enjoy.  And I need to nurture my small inner artist which I've neglected so much.

First up is music. I've posted videos before and I want to keep this up. Music is forever going to be so inspiring for me.  A good song can turn my mood around 100%. Music is the quickest way to awake my soul when I'd rather be laying in bed watching the Office for the millionth time.  This song by Brooke Waggoner has been on repeat for the last 15 minutes.  Love.
