What's inspiring me lately...

This time of year has me crazy busy. While I love being occupied, I struggle with finding balance and patience. I'm the type that has a list of "to do" items a mile long, but instead of addressing any of them, I start a craft and avoid life. Oy. So to that end, I'm going to share what's inspiring me lately around here, amongst the flurry of activity...
Finishing up the last of the senior pictures this season.  The session I did last week was of a dear friend's daughter, and it was on the most beautiful farm.  I want to relocate because of it...
Both boys and their adorable coach (my hubs)  in travel soccer.  This season, the families and boys have really gotten along and bonded.  I look forward to seeing them at games (good thing--with practice and games, they all practically live together!)  Nice to see my kids really fall in love with something, and to hang with fun people who get it.
My daughter.  What a difference a year makes.  She's finishing up her first year of middle school, inhaling books like its nobody's business, and is almost booked solid for the summer with babysitting jobs.  She blows me away.  So proud of her.
This felt pillow and the chair its adorning.  Arhaus, I love you.

My kindergartener's artwork.  Makes me melt.  I want to savor this last week of school with him.

Finishing another round of scrapbooks for my son's 3rd grade classroom.  This year's book included washi tape and die cuts, along with printouts and photos from their year.  The kids always love this project.  (You can view last year's project here.)
And last but not least, working in the yard.  Pretty rewarding, although there is a lot to do.  Working on a container garde this year, along with planting more of my favorite hydrangea bushes.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Enjoy your day, and BE INSPIRED!!

I'm not a fast thinker, but once I am interested in something, I am doing it for many years.
