This is it, #FMFparty time 🙂


Let’s do it!


Mountain Climber Round Border






I see things so differently now. Things I had never considered, there’s a whole new light. My perspective is AWESOME. I feel like with each passing year, I’ve followed a path up a mountain. The path is not easy, it’s life people, it isn’t made to be easy. I DIDN’T KNOW THAT!!!! So the struggles, the dreams, the goals, and the obstacles – I can see the beauty in it all like never before.

And of course …

There are still days I get down, beat myself up, throw myself over the cliff and cry my little eyes out – but even now I can SEE what those days are for, why they happen, and my heart is ever grateful that I now plan for them and accept that the best that I can do is that.

And maybe it’s not just age. It’s experience too, I guess. I read Donald Miller’s “A Million Miles” (and I still can’t remember the entire title, even though the book is currently sitting on the seat in my car), and it’s all about story. I was not very inspired with mine, until I read that part about the inciting event.

I’ve got mine 🙂

Here’s to seeing new things and flying high!


hit the ground running

So yesterday I presented my website and portfolio in my art marketing class. While I usually enjoy this portion, I was a little off my game from lack of sleep. As it turns out, nobody noticed. Ha! I’ll take that to mean I did a better job than I thought, or else my game needs a serious kick in the pants.

Speaking of a which, I just found out that I will solely be concentrating on this new business venture of mine starting … FRIDAY. What???!!!! While I hadn’t planned on making this my sole source of income just yet, I do now. Most definitely. The sinking feeling in my stomach phase is dying down, but we’ll see what the rest of the week has in store. Tomorrow will involve many MANY pictures of items to add to my online shop. Still deciding if I want to pursue an etsy account or try running things solo. Maybe both?

When you get a moment, will you pray for this stressed out momma? Thanks!
