I am taking a cue from my pets that winter is the perfect time to just cuddle up and give my body a little rest. As I start my first week back, I can feel my brain spinning with questions around ideas for this coming new year especially around my creative business. I'm trying to choose a focus to help me expand and grow, but to also stay grounded in a place of balance so that I have time approach what comes my way with grace and peace. So far the questions are there but the answers and actions still are floating around. For now I'm just enjoying the time I have in the moment. Being thankful to be a Mom, nesting in my cozy home, and easing into the new year!

Easing into the new year
Here in New Hampshire winter has settled in with the icy cold weather and snow. I have been busy keeping the wood stove burning so that although it's cold outside it is toasty warm inside, just the way I like it. Over the holiday break I took a total vacation from the studio. I spent lovely times with friends, took a ski trip to Mad River Glen, my favorite ski area in VT, read Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth and started World Without End the sequel to it, and enjoyed just being around the house.
