i woke up max this morning with a cookie and a love note. we laid in his bed and gabbed about the way the light is changing in the mornings and how the birds and their song are seeming happier---small signs that become a welcomed lifeline when the thick of winter closes in. and then we got cookies crumbs everywhere...
things have been good here. life has a funny way of getting more complicated and all together more simplified all at the same time. we're enjoying the mash...or anyways, it's spicing up life around here and who knew it was needed?
i've been doing lots of painting and working on a new spring grouping of pieces for the shop (coming in march!). i moved my studio home in the fall...and while i ache for that old brick loft...the practicality of stealing away moments to work while at home with my little ones is where it's at! the painting above was a commissioned piece-- packaged and shipped away to australia last week. it's been the biggest hoot getting to send my work out into the world! for a gal who hasn't traveled much, it does so much good for this wanderlusting heart.
sending love and gratitude to you all. and happy happy valentine's day! matt and i have a sitter and no plans in sight. it's going to be a fly by the seat of our pants/go to bed before 9 o'clock kind of wild date night.
