The other day I finally ventured into the backyard and attempted to organize my art space. I think some part of me feared that it would take a million years, or that I wouldn't like working out there without the cats or t.v. But it was heaven! I painted for over 8 hrs back there, drinking tea.
I have been really grateful for all the good things that have come into my life during this year, and while out in my studio listening to Pandora Radio and painting, I found myself smiling really big. I was listening to cat power which turned into the Shins which turned into joy division and I found myself singing and thinking- "HOW DID WE MAKE THIS HAPPEN? I am in a cool space with all of my favorite art supplies and on the walls are layered tear sheets and posters and out the window I can see my fiance working on the yard and rose garden. This is super fantastic, and for this moment in time I am going to soak up this happy blissful feeling. In a few weeks we go home to visit my family in Ohio. Which I am so excited about and scared, since my mom just found out she has breast cancer and will be dealing with a lot of doctor visits and stuff. Please keep her in your thoughts
P.S. Thanks to all of you Moldy Doily readers who have helped me pick out some wedding dresses! I really appreciate it
