Everyday Life,  Living a Creative Life

Back to Work

I mentioned that I was a little bit sad that we were back in the groove this morning on the way to school. My daughter sighed and agreed. I wasn’t sure how I would feel this year. Thanksgiving is full to the brim with traditions and expectations. We always travel; enjoy fun, full family time; make pies and eat; and play games. In the morning while the turkey is being prepped, the parade is always on in the background followed by the dog show. Unless it’s below zero or raining the kids will be outside as much as possible, swarming the kitchen to devour any snacks or meals. I love every single crazy moment of it; and ever since I was in college I’ve always been sad when it’s over.

So, the question is, if I’m living my creative life and doing what I want to do, how can I still be a “little bit sad” when Monday rolls around? If I really sit down and think about it, having that family time gets me ready for work. I was excited to get going in the studio this morning. There’s a LOT cooking and I’m practically tingling with anticipation! In fact, Tami Chacon, from Choose Joy Studios, and I are collaborating on something to be announced soon. It’s going to be juicy and fun and I can’t wait to share!

I hope you had your version of family time and traditions. I’m headed to the studio to make some art!
