Happy heart.

So artwalk came and went...

sigh of relief. 

but a happy sigh. 

Got to share my love for chubby babies.
Create a few calligraphy pieces.

The best part was getting to see all of my friends in one place.
seriously, some drove hours and made it just in time, 
another I hadn't seen for a good year, 
and another took the train up from san diego.

ugh. happy, full heart!

I'm so so grateful for this little journey that God continues to lead me on.
It's SO full of fear and apprehension, 
but also sprinkled with a lot of love, affirmation and encouragement.
It's humbling, this kind of feeling...
knowing that yes, God's blessed me with a love of creating with my hands, 
but it's nothing that could have happened without the people that He's surrounded me with.

It's also nothing without the sense of peace and security that I have 
knowing that even in moments of insecurity and doubt, 
I am exactly where He wants me to be. 

The Lord gives enough for today,
and I have faith in the fact that He provides for tomorrow.

"His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
the Lord delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love."
Psalm 147:10-11

True to form, I took zero photos from the night.
I'll definitely remember to take some when I stop by next week! YES.

Here are a few that I grabbed from my buddies:

pre-artwalk sweets with the roomie, 
sugar definitely calms the nerves. haha

HUGE shoutout to Danni for the big privilege of setting up shop in her amazing store.

the longest verse I had to tackle that night, 29 words!!
I had a 15 word limit, haha.

Some of my favorite people, in matching green! perfection.

My college roomie spent the entire afternoon with me setting up and just being a source of comfort.
I have so much apprehension walking into new situations sometimes, 
and she knows that. love her. to death. 

and more photobooth fun with my dad and sister.
probably the highlight of the night for him. haha!

(sidenote: this post made it so obvious how I remember instagram handles WAYY better than real names, yikes.)

  1. Again, so fun to see you and your stuff. I love the framed piece of the child looking through the telescope at the stars. Not sure who I would give it too. I will have to see if my niece has a baby. I'd love it for me, but now wall space to speak of at the moment..... So glad you are doing what you love!
