There are times when everything happens, and all you can do is keep running to keep up. In other words, life happens.
The last time I sat down to write a blog post was September 6th. In between then and now, a lot of life has happened.
My parent’s have closed their restaurant. They are working on fixing a few health problems and learning (quite well!) how to be home together.
My waitressing day job has now ended (after an extremely busy stretch). My library internship is coming to a close, but leading to (yes another) volunteer position there to work on a few more projects.
The last few months I have been simply trying to ride the waves and keep my head above water. That is a bit of a surfing reference…and yes I have tried surfing, and yes it is hard! I feel like I have finally landed on the beach, just in time for the holidays.
2013 was a hard year, I won’t lie. But I can’t write it all off. So many amazing things happened, and I have learned a lot.
I’m hoping that 2014 will be a bit calmer, and hopefully include a few new adventures for John and I.
I am really looking forward to concentrating on my artwork and finding my happy center again this coming year.
I will post more about my internship (it has been amazing!) and the sweet photo shoots I have worked on recently (like Oliver!) soon. In fact, I really hope to get into a blogging and journaling practice in 2014 and make writing here a part of my routine.
Wishing all reading this a happy holidays, no matter what you are celebrating.
