Happy Monday

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 presetI painted this little guy yesterday afternoon. There was a sun shower happening outside, both my boys were having a nap, and I wanted to use that sliver of time I had to myself to do something I enjoyed.

I’ve decided that even though I may have other things that need to be done. My soul really needs time to work with my hands to be energized. I’m the kind of person that needs to make a friendship bracelet, paint a picture, or write curvy letters. No computer. No phone. Just tactile things that make me happy.

I hope you had an equally lovely Father’s Day Sunday.

Here are some things you may enjoy from around the web:
