The last couple months have been a very introverted time for me. I have done very little art, barely kept the house at an acceptable level of cleanliness, and have been out of touch with some of my closest friends. Although I am harboring this incredible joy at growing a life inside me, the dark side of this time has been a lingering sadness and a lot of self reflection.
As if on cue, as I have officially stepped into my 2nd trimester I feel some of this inactivity, sadness, and tiredness slip from my shoulders. I have found myself desiring to blog again, scrubbing the kitchen sink to a sparkling state, and looking up interesting recipes to cook for dinner. I have been thinking about my art supplies longingly again too...
So in celebration of this change I will be following in one of my dear friend's footsteps by blogging each day for 30 days about something that brings joy to my daily life.
Here is #1.
The many crayon drawings that now hang on our fridge make me so happy. Oftentimes our little left handed artist collaborates with her dad as you can see in the picture to the left. I have always been in love with the inhibition of children creating art... and now I am lucky enought to experience it daily!
