my life feels pretty exciting right about now and i’m a little afraid to talk about it for fear i could burst the bubble or something. but anyway, here goes…..
next week we are going to the big island. it’s going to be amazing. i just know it. the photo above was taken on maui, the last time we were there. it's been way too long!
we are working with the san diego spaniel rescue group and, while i can’t reveal too much at this time…. let’s just say it looks very promising! (my heart gets all pitter-patter when i think about this!) stay tuned.

our new deck is finally finished and while replacing it (due to termites) is not something we planned on doing and (of course!) it cost way more and took longer than we planned… we are so happy with the end result. thinking maybe a little deck-warming party might be in order!!
i just got my postcards for the april retreat and i love them. honestly, i’m not quite sure this retreat is even going to happen… i hope it does, but if not, that’s ok too.
i also received my first journal prototypes for the “insideout” project, published on blurb. they are a combination of plain and lined pages with images and quotes interspersed. i made a little deck of prompts to go with them to get things started and there is a short intro at the beginning explaining about the journals and what i hope them to accomplish.

and if that’s not enough…. i am working on a super exciting project related to the inside out journals that i can’t reveal just yet. can’t wait to tell you more of the details…. but it will have to wait…..
now i have to say it felt a little uncomfortable writing this post. for some reason it feels easier to share when things aren’t going well than when they are. why is that? or is it just me? i think it makes me feel like you might think i’m saying: “look at me – my life is so wonderful” or something like that. or that you can relate to me better if i'm having problems. if you’ve been around a while, you know i’ve shared plenty of things on the “other side of the fence” too. hmmm – any thoughts?? is it just me??
