Turning Around

It is Monday, and I am in my studio in town. I will be moving out of here after I get home from the beach week after next.
This is such a season of change in my life. My baby boy is in his last week of Kindergarten. I can hardly beleive it. He has grown and matured so much this year. He has learned so much too. He is reading well above grade level, and I am thrilled. I was always able to find escape in books, and I hope he will love them as much as I have.
On Satuday, we are off to Holden beach for a week. It will be my daughter's first time at the ocean. I can't wait to see how she likes it. My parents will be there with me, which I am thrilled about. They are my best friends, and there is noone else I would rather spend time with. We will spend our days walking the beach and playing in the sand, looking for critters and treasure. Holden Beach is one of those quiet places where there aren't millions of people. It is a very restful and restorative place for me.
The piece above is in the journal I started at Art and Soul. I have been trying to give myself time and permission to journal. It helps me keep my peace. I just write and layer over it. It is almost like doing artist pages for me.
Not much else to share. I am in a good space, and hope you are too!
