We Went Camping

It was the best.

It was also rather exhausting in the best way possible. 
I came home feeling totally worn out but refreshed. 

Also, probably by no coincidence, I started reading Last Child in the Woods when I got back. I am not far into it but I do love it. It is about the new relationship between children and nature. It is an eye-opening read. If you are a parent or are thinking about being one some day, read it. Then go play outside.

It also starts each chapter with a quote. I personally love that in a book. 

There was a child went forth every day, 
And the first object he look'd upon, that object he became,
And that object became part of him for the day or a certain part of the day,
Or for many years or stretching cycles of years.

The early lilacs became part of this child, 
And grass and white and red morning glories, and white and red clover,
and the song of the phoebe-bird,
And the Third-month lambs and the sow's pink-faint litter,
and the mare's foal and the cow's calf,...
-Walt Whitman

It was a fun little outdoors weekend but I need to get back to work. I am excited to be a part of Art Fair 562. It is soon and I have much to do to get ready.

Tra-laa Tra-lee Today is My Birthday Lucky Me!

Today I turn 29.
 I am actually turning 29. I know that is a birthday some women have a few times. This will be my only 29th Birthday I promise. It is the start of the last year of my 20's and I plan to use the year well. I am excited to start a new job next week as a nanny to a tiny and very new person. I have many a great plan for this art business I have going. Starting with my first prints for sale!

Other than that we'll see what God brings this year. I feel really great about where I am at and where I am going. I am content. Maybe that finally makes me a grown-up.
