This summer so far has been wonderful. We had the chance of being at my old house for a few weeks, and we’re loving the time away. It’s been a very, very long time since I’ve been home for a long period of time, and it’s really wonderful for me to be reminded of all the things that have contributed to me as an artist, and influenced me as a child. Seeing my children in the space that I grew up in is so revealing to me. I haven’t really had the chance to see that much. I miss it.
I planned on working and playing….keeping up with things as normal. But my parents have had major computer/internet issues and honestly, it’s been a welcomed break. I’ve got an inbox that is piling up and projects that have been forced to wait, but they can wait. Summer with kids is precious time.
Coming back home, I’m reminded of all the details I grew up with…the colors, the green and the ever present nature all around. I grew up minutes from the city, but minutes from the country. It was the perfect, perfect place to build an imagination. So many farms, walks, places to explore.
I have lots more little mini adventures to share. Like this family that’s been living near my parents house. There are actually 4 baby dear between 2 Mama’s that keep poking in to say hello. I can’t get enough of it.
Hope you are all having wonderful memories this summer! I’m terrified with how fast it flies by! Lazy days….please, please stay!
Happy summer days to you all!
