Has it really been so long since I last posted? (And I thought I was doing so much better.)
Life is full. Very full. So full, half the time I feel like I can't keep up.
But that's normal, right?
I know it is MY normal. It's how I function, really. Keep busy or be bored.
I don't like "bored."
But sometimes I need a breather, and sometimes I stare out my window to just be still.
(Because every soul needs to be still sometimes.)
I've been doing some thinking in some of those still moments.
Thinking about what I want to do with my life.
How is it I'm 33, and still don't know what I want to do with my life?
My baby goes off to preschool in the fall.
And I'm afraid of that B word I mentioned earlier (bored).
And I've wondered, do I start business back up?
Do I go back to school?
Do I get a job?
Do I get a job?
I'd nearly talked myself into taking on some clients again...
I started feeling overwhelmed by the idea, and I've realized...
it's still not the right time.
But my heart yearns to create.
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.
No matter our talents, education, backgrounds or abilities,
we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create.
You don't need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.
You might say, I am not the creative type. If that is how you feel, think again.
Creation is your opportunity in this life...Start small.
Creativity does not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano.
Don't let the voice of critics paralyze you. You will make the World a better place.
Improve, beautify, extend, smile, cultivate, develop, create."
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf
And so it goes. I yearn to create.
I yearn to have a place to share the inner working of my heart.
I yearn to influence and inspire.
So I'm thinking I may pour some of my time into redesigning my online presence.
Change things up a little.
Share my images, my words, my music, things that inspire me, thoughts...
...it's a work (really, just a thought) in progress.
But it feels right.
And I've learned to go with what I feel is right.
In other news, I was recently featured on a blog for my images on Instagram!
I love instagram, and it's been a fun social and artistic outlet for me.
Do you Instagram? If you do, I'd love it if you followed me.

And that's all for now! I have some more images to share with you soon!
