mini-blog break

rasberries
there is nothing better than coming home from a weekend away with friends with a new perspective on home. it occured to me as i walked down to the russian river {barefooted all the way down to the landing where the squishy mud stuck between my toes} that i need to be outside more! smell the grass, roll around in it and feel the weight of the earth beneath me, take walks with out a purpose, feel the sunshine... ahh so good. this realization also comes during a time of extreme busyness with an upcoming show, school and a part-time job search. i'm going to take a week off of blogging and rededicate that time to walking around the block, or up to bernal hill with a friend or to dolores park with my notebook. i will miss y'all this week, but enough time is spent for me in front of the computer! basta!

please check back in a week and i'll have new work to show:)

see more glimpses of our weekend here.

Have a super break! I just got back from a flurry of wedding, baptism, visiting with relatives I haven't seen since I was a tot, and now I'm home and pooped! I thought I'd get back to blogging again, but I think I'll need another short break to recover from traveling with a toddler via airplane for 5 hours to and from. Anyway, just popped by to say, hiya mati! Take care and have fun afk (away from keyboard). Oh, btw my e-mail address is anj@commonforest.com. I don't want to lose touch, either.

I have such fond memories of a mini vacation my husband and I took to the Russian River when we still lived in California: floating in inner tubes in the sun, camping, champagne tasting... Love it there! Looking forward to another California mini-vacation soon to visit sister in San Luis Obispo - more wine tasting and a little bit of sunshine for pale Oregonians! Good luck with all your upcoming stuff!

Mati! You call that a MINI blog break! Oh how I've missed you! Hope you are having fun. And you must know you've made me a blog addict (I'm even trying out my own, but it's a bit of a secret, I'm not ready to commit to it yet.)
soon moon-Moira
