I believe wholeheartedly that we meet people throughout our lives for a reason. The key is realizing the reason.
It could be a brief encounter at a rest stop on a road trip, someone ahead of us in line that paid for your coffee, a friendship from grade school, a few month relationship, or - a 20 year marriage. It could be someone that bought something from you at your garage sale; maybe someone you ran into at the grocery store... It all happens for a reason. I've realized over the years to look up more often, make eye contact and see who is in my path and smile! Life is about connection - we can't live without it.
I'll tell you a little about myself along the way with each post, each painting, each design. At a quick glance you can see some things here that make me, me - my favorite things, what I'm passionate about, what I'm currently reading, current podcasts I'm listening to, and music that I'm currently soaking in. I'll let you in on something: I am not a writer. This is completely stretching that creative outlet - so let's see how it goes. Be gracious with me. :)
I'm originally from the East Coast but have lived in southeast Michigan since 2000.
My goal here is to share what inspires me and where that may take me in my thought process of creating. Maybe it will inspire you too.
Until next time... XO
