Day 10~ 30 days of blog lovin' Happy Mothers Day!!

Its a different thing, this writing a post because you've committed to show up and do so for thirty days. 

I'm not quite sure I like it. 

It feels more raw, more edgy, like I'm not quite prepared and you're going to see me with my make up off and my daggy dressing gown and ugg boots on. ........

Like maybe you might catch me when I'm tired and not feeling super bubbly....

and I guess that's all part of it...being honest and being authentic ....
one of my students shared today in our wrap up that she felt so good to have spent the weekend with other artists and to know that everyone has meltdowns, moments of uncertainty, tantrums and self doubts....

and to see that, in other people, made her feel so much better about her "moments". 

Maybe this is what it is all about. Letting our guard down with each other...letting go of delusions of perfection and JUST BEING REAL.....


Leaving you with warm wishes for a very Happy Mothers Day.
  
The girls and I are going to celebrate when I get home...we've become flexible that way...but it was so very cool to be a part of my host Jenny's mothers day this morning and I was thrilled to capture this pic of yoghurt-mouthed Max offering a kiss to mummy just before we left for a day of painting :))

hasta manana mi  amigas!! (y amigos tambien :))

I think it's working Tracy! I'm so inspired by your 30 day Blog Mission - and a few other artist friends who have done it as well - that I think I'm going to push myself to do MY 30 days as well! I'm so bad at fitting it in that I go days and weeks neglecting the blog... I guess this will force me to think of topics to write about! (One thing is - my kids are grown and gone - so that's a whole lot less to write about! I'm afraid my followers will be bored to death with my life. haha) Keep it up girl! We're with you!
