Last week I had the opportunity to head off to my family's cabin for a little peace and relaxation--complete with a visit from herd of 20+ deer! The herd came over to visit the salt lick, and then ended up bedding down for over 2 hours on the side of the cabin. It was so peaceful watching them--and resting WITH them!
On a completely unrelated topic--but still an important part of relaxation: My husband and I LOVE pancakes--they are our Saturday morning tradition! So, we decided to do a little experimenting while we were at the cabin, and came up with some new pancake flavors! I give you: Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Matcha, and Coffee! (The best were the Peanut Butter and Matcha--which is a green tea!)
And, of course, no vacation would be complete without a little art! Inspired by the recent beginning of Spring, I decided to create a story in a moonlit flower garden. Below is a process shot from the painting (which is near completion!):
As new growth appears, and the days begin to grow warmer--and longer, be sure to take some time to enjoy the beauty around you! Unplug and breath in that fantastic smell of fresh rain and fresh flowers! Go for a walk and be PRESENT--enjoying the sites and sounds around you!
May your spring be filled with inspiration!
