Checkin in w/ My Crew!

Hi all! My boss is on vacay all week (yeah!!!) So I thought I'd drop by and do a lil chit-chat. We're cool like that right? Great.

Well, this is a journal page i started last night after V went to sleep. I've been very resistent about starting an art journal. but I've learned that it is just fear so I decided to throw some paint and will work on it some more tonight. Isn't it funny how fear can convince you that you don't really like something, when in fact its exactly what your heart is calling for? Well anyway, this is in its early stages and I'm trying not to to think about the end project and focus on the process...pray for your girl on that one.

 Here's my favorite lunch time spot...I can get out of my office and 4get about all the madness. And check out this great banner hanging across the street from my job.

I turned the chair around so I could face the garden.

It's at this random intersection. Love it!

Uhm, well what else is going on around these parts??? Oh yeah, my job will be over here at the end of the month. I've been temping since I moved here almost a year ago. My hope was that I'd get a permanent federal position and V and I would settle here for a while. But it's funny how things work out. Just as the job thing hasn't worked out the way I thought I also realized I'm really not a city girl after all. I like the activities and a lil hustle and bustle but I am a country girl at heart. So, at the beginning of the month we'll be moving back to NC. I'm excited but there is still much on my mind. While I am finally beginning to honor my inner guidance I sometimes second guess my intuition because everyone around me is doing the opposite and they seem to have it going on and I'm facing some pretty public challenges. But you know what it's not gonna stop me. So I just wanted to share a bit of my innerds with you. i know you don't mind. ;-)

I'll end with a pic of my inspiration for it all - my shmookie-shmoo! 'Til next time...

I just look at him and that smile & know exactly what I need to do.

    hey Jennifer,
    Glad I found you- We are taking the same course from Kelly. And thanks for the comment on my blog.
    I just want to say- it is ok not feeling like a city girl. I too am Southern Country Bound. I love the slow pace of the south and wouldn't take nothing for it. YOu know everything works out for the best. In this next step you about to take is going to be the most favored.

    By the way, what part of NC are you moving to, if you don't mind me asking?

    Anyway- wanted to stop and say howdy.
    Alease Michelle
    By the way your shmookie-shmoo is too cute.

  2. the garden area is so pretty- and that little sign is great!

    so my dream spot to live someday...someday!! is asheville, n.c. or is it ashville-- not sure. anyway, my aunt and uncle live there and i've been to a songwriting camp- so lots of vacations there and i feel very "at home" anytime i'm there. i don't know other parts of n.c., but i sure am jealous that you'll be moving there! but in being jealous, i certainly don't mean i'm not happy for you-- i AM!
