Happy New Year friends! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and safe new year’s celebrations. It’s been quite a while since I’ve written here, but I’m setting some goals to change that for 2018! I’m pretty active over on instagram, and as a result, I’ve completely neglected my poor blog in 2017. I’m paying good money for this bad boy, so I may as well use it, right?

I have pages in my journal full of ideas for new projects to launch, opportunities to work together, openings for commissioned work, outings and travel reviews, and even some tutelage along the way! So I hope you’ll join me as I dive back into the blogging realm – because otherwise, it’s like talking the wall… Which I feel I do often enough in this busy household!

If you’ve popped in today, it’s most likely because we’re already connected in other ways and I’d love to hear some feedback from my readers here. Are there any specific questions for me that I can answer for you here on the blog? Creativity? Watercolor? Journaling? Business? Recipes? Adventuring? Let’s keep it going! Comment below and let me know what interests you.

While I’m planning my 2018 goals and catching up on all the things, here are a few highlights from 2017. I take a lot of photos on my phone, so narrowing down to just a few was a real challenge – but super fun to reflect on 2017 and all that it held. When I’m take these times to reflect and just use my brain to remember things, I tend to focus on negative experiences. But these visuals are reminding me that good far outweighs the bad!

Art and Adventures:

Mountains to Sea… We love taking time to go play outside. From just a day hike around our beautiful mountains, to the healing waters of the sea, nothing is as refreshing as the great outdoors. And of course when I’m not on the trails or in the waves, a healthy dose of creative work keeps my soul inspired.
