I'm not a club going girl.
Or a gambler. I'm far too practical.
But this girlie likes to sit by the pool, read PEOPLE magazine, and sip a cool, refreshing mojito with my hubby by my side.
I missed my boys, but I need that time to recharge every once in a while.
I didn't bring my camera.
Or check blogs.
I checked out of it all.
Which leads to this next part. When is it that we check out of what we are passionate about before wiping bottoms, staying up nursing colicky babies, and wiping sweat off our foreheads as we put a defiant toddler in time out for the hundredth time?
My blog friend, who will become a real life, in person friend this week when we meet for lunch, has started painting after putting it aside for a bit.
She's a mom of one super cute dude. She's busy. I get it. But, she has had painting on her heart. Without letting doubt or excuses interrupting her path, she forged ahead and followed her heart.
Please check out her work HERE:
This is not a give away. She doesn't even know that I'm writing this. I was just looking at her amazing work and had the desire to share. And so following Alyss' lead, I followed my heart and here we are.
Go say "hey there girl" to Alyss and let her know that you think her art rocks. It does. Pinky swear.
And then sit quietly for a moment and ask yourself what is on your heart. Are you willing to follow it?
