Hello and Happy Holidays!
It’s a busy time of year with the hustle and bustle of shopping, cooking, creating, traveling, visiting the post office and eating too much (amongst many other fun activities!) However, I am finding myself in a non-traditional state of slowing down these days. The year is coming to an end, and I must say I am looking forward to a new year and the opportunities that will be presented. My dog, Baylee, lost her battle of cancer six weeks ago. My relationship with my partner also ended a few weeks ago. As I am slowing down, I am also grieving.
This year has, as have all years previous, bestowed upon me so many opportunities that many are not afforded. Although I’ve experienced hardships and heartbreak, I am trying to keep in mind that… I have the luxury of giving gifts to people I love. I can cook healthy and delicious food. I have family close-by that I can visit this holiday season. I have a gift of creativity that I can share with people. I am grateful that people are inspired by my artwork- they want to wear it, give it, and receive it.
Share your love, your joy, your spirit. Let it shine on those who may not have family, friends, or even love. Keep in your mind- and keep in your heart- all the blessings you have.
Cheers to you and yours this holiday season, and I’ll be in touch in the new year 2013!
