  A portrait of my little ones, once a week, every week in 2015, see more here.
A visit to the nature play park, and a stop to see the ducks on a gorgeous sunny day. 

U: you have been into making up your own jokes lately, and often they are actually funny. 

S: when I asked you what you wanted for your birthday this morning you said "pokemon cards".

A hike in southwest washington, trying to catch some delicious winter sun. We kind of missed it for the most part, but the hike was lovely and new. Rushing blue silver water with a wooden plank to cross, old oaks, craggy rocks, lots of moss, and a view from the top. Can't wait to return when the wildflowers are blooming in just a few months. 

U: listening to Abba tell you a story as we walk up the road. you looked in the trees for eagle nests. 

S: you wanted Abba to wear you the whole time, and didn't want to walk at all. you were sleepy and snuggly.

begin, again.

I haven't been in this space for a long time. I got so close to finishing the 52 project, but then things came up and I missed the last month or so. I have been dealing with health issues since the beginning of autumn, and as doctor appointments and tests got piled on, everything else fell away. I was just working on getting by and through the last couple months. I wasn't feeling excited about the new year, but dread about what diagnosis I might be getting. 

I am trying to shift my mindset and come back to myself. To pick up my passions again and stop worrying about my health. There are no answers yet, and it might just be a few small issues (fingers crossed) and not the big one that I have been worrying about. There are no answers available right now, it's more of a wait and see situation, so I have to let it go. Focus on the good things, start making art again, and be happy with my kids.
