Moving back to San Diego has been terrific although I still feel like I'm in my adjustment period. It took me several weeks to find a new home and even longer to get unpacked... I still am not completely settled in but I'm getting there. I found a cute duplex in the suburbs and am blessed to have a nice landlord, a friendly neighbor, my own laundry room, a garage, a yard, and the best part - a whole room to dedicate to my art studio/office!
I used my birthday gift cards to buy shelving for the studio and I am almost done getting everything put in its place. I would have been done ages ago if I didn't keep hauling stuff out and making messes (along with art) along the way.
Shortly after moving into my new home, I discovered this nest of baby birds right outside my window.
I've really enjoyed catching up with old friends and making new ones since coming back to San Diego.
Sadly, my best friends relocated to the Monterey Bay area shortly after I arrived. I was lucky enough to get to spend a long weekend with them over Halloween. On the way home, I took the scenic route down the famous Highway 1...
Being back in Southern California gave me the opportunity to attend one of my online artist friend's art showing... and to finally meet her in person. Kate Carvellas was as sweet in person as I'd come to know her online and a talented artist too!
Although I went home for Thanksgiving, I spent a lovely quiet Christmas at home this year.
I'm looking forward to the new year and good things =)
the greater your capacity to create."
