We are still settling into our new apartment. So far so good (expect for a leaky bathroom faucet- but it was fixed by the landlord in no time at all!), it's really a lovely apartment and it feels like a good fit for us. We still have a lot of unpacking to do. Our bedroom is full of bags and hampers of clean clothes that we've yet to put into the dressers and closets. Just yesterday we broke down all of the empty cardboard boxes that had piled up, oh my goodness there were so many! Tonight is trash/recycling night so we'll finally get rid of them completely!
We've been doing A LOT of wedding planning. We're in the home stretch now- only 25 days to go! This past weekend we wrote our vows, picked a reading for the ceremony, secured wedding music, I had a dress fitting, did some crafty projects... It's coming together.
25 days to go!
I have given myself time to make art, which I think is essential for my sanity! It's good to settle into my new studio. I've also joined a coop boutique of women artists, crafters, bakers, and business owners! It's a beautiful place and I feel lucky to be in the company of such talented women! I had my first day of working there last week and it was fun. The people are so nice, the products are beautiful, and it's in a cute little town. I'm very excited for this experience.
This is a picture of some of my larger paintings hanging at the coop boutique! It's so neat to see my stuff on the wall, mixed in with the beautiful work of other women!
I've also been spending a lot of time walking through the neighborhood park. It's the same park I grew up going to. I'm finding that it's a really lovely place to be. There is a small pond that has a neat winding trail around it. I've started walking everyday and I love walking around the pond. There are so many beautiful trees, birds (geese, ducks, even heron!), and friendly walkers/runners/bird watchers. From my house to the park, around the pond, and back to the house is about 2 miles. I hope I can keep up this walking practice. Obviously, it's good for my body but it's also good for my mind and my nerves.
