hi friends! welcome back. i hope you had a nice weekend. i took an extra long weekend to take a much needed blog and social media break. sometimes you just have to step back for a little while. i did a little decluttering of my home. I always find that if I spend a little time getting rid of some of the clutter, I have more space to be creative. I love that feeling when you just recently clean things up a bit and you can finally take a deep breath. i always feel a little more inspired and rejuvenated!!!
it’s week 20 of 52 weeks. today we are supposed to document a rainy day. i love rainy days, especially in Colorado. although, we hardly ever have a whole day of raining here. during the summer, we often have afternoon thunderstorms. and there is nothing like a good thunderstorm to make you feel refreshed and awakened during a hot stifling summer. it breaks up the day, provides relief from the heat and stirs the soul. there is something magical about a thunderstorm. it makes me feel more alive, renewed and empowered. i actually love getting a nice cup of tea and settling down with my paint brush as the sights and sounds of a thunderstorm fill the air. i hope it rains today.
