This summer, I'm having to look just a bit harder to find the sweetness of the season.
Admittedly, it's thrown me for a little bit of a loop.
There's been a lot of soul searching and decision making, which sounds quite dramatic, but for a mamma's heart it has been.
There's been a a bit of a steep self-learning curve going on.
It's all sounding cryptic, which I hate.
But honestly. I can't seem to put it all into words.
But I seem to keep coming back to words like
Then there's always
no way, huh-uh, nope
and yes, even some scowling
And then I get to focus on a project for a wedding, such as centerpieces and lettering-which brings great satisfaction and even a little tiny sense of balance.
I've been able to sit a bit under the twinkle lights, read voraciously, (i.e. escape through reading)
One morning, I blasted out a small piece for my living room wall.
Just "Love Lives Here" with high fluid black acrylic on some glass.
It felt like normal and it felt good.
And this DOG.
Oh, she makes me laugh almost every day.
And these three make my heart squeeze a little tighter all the time.
So while figuring out which set of train tracks I'm on at any given time, (scowling or open hands) I'm thankful to find the sweetness of summer in many ways.
