52 Lists Project: List the things that make you feel peaceful
Moorea Seal, a friend of mine, published a lovely book of lists. 52 Lists, it's a year of weekly journaling inspiration. It's beautifully made and thoughtfully written. I've had the desire to journal a bit again and this feels like a manageable pace. One list a week. I can handle that. 

It's also very approachable, fun and revealing questions. Reading and writing in this book is helping me to be more mindful of who I am and aware of the world around me. 

This week's list is List # 42: List the things that make you feel peaceful
home, candles, warmth, quiet, reading, intentionally listening to music, water, soup, paint, pencils, writing, playing guitar, arting, walking, singing, dancing, bathing, drawing, sleeping. 

What would your, list of things that make you feel peaceful, have on it?


Life Long Learner: January Reads

Looking at all these books cluttering my coffee table and night stand, I began to realize how much I love to learn. I have always been an inquisitive person. I was never an easy student, but when something interested me, I wanted to learn about it and try it out. 

Recently I've been reading...

Manage Your Day-To-Day: Build your routine, find your focus, and sharpen your creative mind...
A great read for anyone working from home, or at the office. It's a collection of essays written by successful creatives. There are several practical tips in here which is really helpful for making goals and putting routines in place.

Not that Kind of Girl...
This is a collection of essays and life lessons from the brutally honest and hilarious, Lena Duhnam. It's a fun read. A bit raunchy at times, but I am appreciative of her frank and funny voice.

The Classroom Management Secret...
This book has already improved my life in the classroom. I want my students to find freedom in a safe, efficient, and supportive environment. This book has helped me to focus on what I expect in the art studio and how to help students live up to my expectations.

Wear No Evil...
This book is all about buying ethically made clothing. It has helped me understand what tragic occurrences are taking place as a result of our fast-fashion consumption. It gives shopping tips, there are several options to encourage the good that is happening around the world, and to discourage the bad.

Do you read multiple books at once?

indulgence of alone time

After closing up my local pop-up-shop I have been really noticing a need to rest.  My body and entrepreneurial spirit were tired.  So, I've been spending some much needed time reading books, writing, planning trips, and watching movies.
I was just sucked into this book called The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.  It's a sad and raw love story about Earnest Hemingway and his first wife Hadley.

Of course I kicked off these great wedges (and my pants) after taking these photos.  Who reads at home on the couch looking so good?  haha.  

I've had a wonderful indulgence of alone time.  I suppose that's why it has been a bit quiet here on the blog, I just wanted to keep a bit to myself.  I know you understand.

Thanks for reading lovelies.
