Take Some Time.

Tomorrow marks the first day of Spring. 2012 is almost 25% over, can you believe it? With the warming weather we have lots of projects planned around our new/old house, namely painting, some more new light fixtures, and lots of planting & gardening. In addition to that I am working on a few new and exciting work-related projects which are keeping me extremely busy and looking forward to some awesome new possibilities. 

2012 so far has also brought its share of trials and challenges, as does every year. There has been birth, death, illness, divorce, dented fenders (and bumpers, and broken mirrors), lost jobs, lost homes, and many other challenges. Yet on the brighter side of things there have been new babies, engagements, weddings, new homes, new opportunities, new business ventures, new songs written, hugs given, love shown, and life lived. And despite the rough times I would say that for me personally it's been an outstanding year so far, and it's looking like things will only get better!

The artwork I've shared today is from one of the many new collections that I've been developing. It's a good reminder that we all can benefit from. Life gets pretty hectic and noisy sometimes, so let's all take some time to sit and listen...  to our conscience, to our child, to our spouse, to a friend, or maybe just to the trees or the birds.

Here's hoping that this week is a fabulous one!
