We had such a wonderful weekend. We went out and tried a new pizza place, practiced some yoga and spent the afternoon with my boys playing washers and soccer in the backyard. We discovered some new music stations on Pandora that I instantly fell in love with... Chris Stapleton and Joey+Rory...awesome music to paint to.
On Sunday, Shannon and I hired a babysitter and went on a date for 4 hours. We laughed and laughed and had an amazing time. We did simple things like shop without the boys and had hot wings that had us sweating and in pain. We enjoyed cold craft beer and Blackhawks Hockey at the Puckers Wings and Bar. We finished our weekend watching Mockingjay 2.
I had a very creative week last week, creating birds, elephants, VW Vans, and a watercolor about a couple walking though life together. I had a lot of requests for my birds so I went out and bought a few more frames. All of these pieces are for sale and will be up on my Etsy Gallery, pixANDpaints. I have also had two orders for custom watercolors, an elephant and a pelican.
This life truly is beautiful. Find something you love and are passionate about and go after your dreams. Give your loved ones all the love you can give, everyday. Surround yourself with color and sunshine and glitter. Enjoy your week. Everyday is such a gift, a blessing.
May you be filled with sunshine this week, even on the rainy days!
