In every adventure it’s good to have a plan, even if it’s to not have a plan. I am somewhere in between.

Words, Textiles, and Food still sums it up as long as I add a little tune or two to it.

Making my dream come true is so exciting to me I am surprised I can sleep some nights.

The trick is to remember the old adage it’s a marathon not a race. I constantly think why am I “still” at step one when I so desire to be at the next level – AT LEAST.

Yes that is how I feel some days, in fact most days.

Just about everything is interesting to me in this thing called life.

I remind myself to breathe.

Make a few lists of “to-dos” and big dreams.

And most importantly to…

Stay inspired!
