I am dreaming/planning/thinking/scheming...
Travis and I are throwing around the idea of doing a little clock building/making. We love the Mora clocks, but upon pricing them we decided to build our own version.

This quote is resonating with me more and more. When the kids were little I felt like I was in survival mode, just trying to get through the days. Living the length of it, but not the width of it. I'm changing that- or at least I am attempting to. I want to squeeze all of the goodness out of each day, no matter how small it may be.
I am so ready for The Walking Dead to return. I miss our Dead & Dinners, and even though Sunday dinner has become a tradition even when the show is off, I still feel like something is missing after dessert...
I am still painting furniture for clients. I've slowed it down to one project every two weeks- with homeschooling I just don't have the time that I used to. I am totally okay with that- I know what I am doing with Hunter is far more important and I love how close we have become. I also feel that when I slow myself down and just focus on one project I am happier with the results and feel renewed instead of stressed. I guess I am just a slow paced kinda gal.
When I set out on this creative endeavor I only dreamed of some of the amazing things that could happen along the way. 2014 is promising to serve up some of those amazing things. I can't share too much yet, but I am constantly blown away by the opportunities that are presented to me. All because I decided to choose happiness in my work.
I plan on spending a lot more time working in my garden this spring. I love puttering around, trimming things, making it look pretty. Gardening is like meditation to me- it feeds the soul.
And finally, I wanted to share this quote. I love the message and it's one that I try to follow as a basis for anything we do here at the cottage.
Hope y'all are having a lovely Sunday- thanks for reading :)
