So I don't celebrate my b-day, but I wanted to say thanks for all the shout outs on Friday. Feels good to finally be 21!
My goal for this year of life is to take more time to just be. I am constantly doing something and it's good to be busy, but I's tired!
I've always been the person who takes the long way so that I can check out the view... and I haven't been that way lately. I mean, I've got a legit excuse - I am super-Mom, I did move to a new state, I'm working-working-working day & night (ooh-ahh), and I am of course singer-songwriter extraordinaire. ;) Totally legit, but no mas!
I took one day last week to just paint and it was so relaxing and wonderful - not to get all Oprah on ya'll, but I realized I'd been neglecting my authentic self. My sweet offspring & I just sat outside with our easels and a million colors and got messy and made ugly pictures (which we decided will be worth millions one day).. and it was the best time ever. So after that day, I decided that no matter what's going on or why - I will take 'me-time' and not feel a bit guilty.
So, hope everyone does the same. Live. Eat carbs excessively, drink a vineyard of wine and paint like a 5 year old. (Or a reeeaaallly mature 21 year old.)
p.s. How adorable is that cake? The lovely and talented Monica Smith made it for me and it was so cute that I didn't want to eat it. (Of course I had 3 slices.)
