I love these pictures -- is it the color scheme? Or that everything seems home-made? Or that they're reading and contemplating? Because when I went home I had a realization of who I really am -- I'm not as extroverted as I've made myself to be. I LOVE snuggling up and reading a good book either in the sun or under a warm hand-made quilt. I realized that I've been pushing myself to live a high-stress life and I thought it would end after school or once I got married or once I had a baby but I have to make it end. I have to make time to paint and ponder and do the things I love! I have to develop the skills that matter to me. And I really enjoy working with people too, maybe it's just time to slow down.
