Last week had been a long exhausting week for me and I don't think I've felt this tired for quite some time. What's funny, I wasn't even overloaded with work, but really just playing the "Mother". Well, you know what they say, there's no tougher job than being one... especially during the holiday season! Yep, kids can be more than a handful, and as my mom keeps saying these days, "Remember, there will be three of them soon..." Yeah, no need reminding me there, Mom! :D
Well, with very little time for myself, I have been thinking a lot about the past and missing all the nights I used to spend with my old friends back in college. Nope, we weren't the sort who went out constantly to clubs and shook our booties till dawn. We just loved going out for meals and then spent time together outside to chat, savoring some fresh air and the night sky. Times like those really bring people closer together, believe me. I even fell in love with a friend once...whom I married years later. :)
Here are some beautiful and inspiring images that have accompanied me in my thoughts while reminiscing the past...
Altitude by Robert Cadloff
Dandelions by Anne Solfud
Beauty of the Stars by Esra of Sunshine Art Design
Twilight Garden by Anna of My Little Pixels
So inspiring to me in fact, that I then decided to recreate my old ACEOs as new artworks and they are now both available as fine art prints and greeting cards at my RedBubble shop.
Rose in Dreams, acrylics & digital painting
Lily at Midnight, acrylics & digital painting
So anyway, I have no doubt that this week will be another exhausting one for me, and I would have to steal away some alone time for a breather now and then...at least until school starts again. :))
Here's wishing you plenty of peace and serenity...
