I’m not a mom (yet) but I do hope that I feel that same way when the time comes.

It has inspired me to actually become more of who I am and to embrace my interests and talents alongside my son’s.”

- These words cannot be any truer! I can feel the positive energy radiating from the words of this lovely person! Wonderful, inspiring and congrats to you:)

I love your philosophy and beautiful home – all the little details, the baskets, the affirmations you have up – I can relate! I also studied visual art, and in fact I have a curious little son named Jonah, as well! Always nice to see someone you relate to! :)

I am so stubborn about it! Even when I lack inspiration or am waiting on materials to arrive, I go to my studio and make something happen.”

There is so much to be said about persistence. I would love to see some discussion on how people make themselves get in the mood to get the important things done.

I read an interesting article today, from a professor who works “in fixed amounts” and has “a weekly hard/fun quota”:
