I was reading the latest issue of LMNOP this morning, and was thrilled to come across this new book from Todd Oldham.. Kid Made Modern is part design book and part activity book with a stylish view into the modern art world AND is filled with great projects for kids..with holiday vacations right around the corner, and winter weekends upon us, love having some great new activities that everyone can do together..
There has been so much going on over the last few months, I don't even know where to begin. Unlike other times in my life when changes were happening ( or needed to happen ) I was totally committed to being present, and to allow myself to completely experience and feel everything as it came up. Without needing to go into too much detail, I woke up this morning, and knew in more ways then one, that I was back. That staying present and strong, and most importantly true to myself and my most important relationships ( with my husband and children ) allowed me to give voice to and act on what matters to me.
I have learned over and over that the most important thing in the world is the love of family, being honest and kind, and pushing yourself to do your personal best. While I have done those things in my personal life these last years, it was not necessarily true of my life at work, which was for me the first time ever that this was the case. It felt good these last months to stay the course, speak from the heart and connect with what was missing for me.
So many exciting things ahead, and a future of professional work, projects and partnerships that I could not be more excited about. A life that is full and complete, and a family and friends that I feel honored and lucky to have.
As I get ready to return to this blog, and develop other creative projects, a huge thank you to the friends here that I have made along the way. The support, kindness and the constant inspiration has been a gift. I thank you.
Someone had given me this card years ago, the well known quote was always an inspiration and well said reminder of what is important.
