Taking Pleasure in the Rain

Taking Pleasure in the Rain

It’s been raining, finally raining. I sat in my office today, working beside the open window and listened to the rain falling. I don’t think I’ve ever appreciated it more.

A Place to Sit

From Me to We

Ear piercings, Fifth disease, dentist appointments, PA days, summer planning, heat waves and life-changing career moves. Does that list of things make you as tired as it’s made me for weeks? Writing this blog and prepping projects to share here gave me the focus and inspiration I needed to make it through the cold winter … Continue reading
