a day in the life

dont you just love little glimpses into other people's lives? i happen to find it fascinating. especially as of late, as i wade through the murky waters of finding balance between my day job, my passion, the hubby, friends and family, etc. - it is so curious to me how other creatives seem to find time for it all!
so, for those of you like me, here is the chance to see what my life looks like daily.

the alarm rings bright and early at 6am. always have been a morning person.
karl makes a fresh pot of (strong) coffee while i get lunches together (the best mornings are when we have left overs!).

we try to share at least a cup before he rushes off to work.

after i get myself ready for work, i usually have a hour, in which time i try to paint or at least get the creative juices going! my studio partner loves to perch here. he's the best little guy. (that is, when he's not trying to drink paint water or play in my paints).

i feel like i can conquer the world in anything from boden. and the bracelet? love!

it takes me about an hour to drive from mill city into salem each morning. and this is where you will find me from 8:45-5:15 monday through friday.

this is my favorite splurge during lunch. and i am already counting down the days until pumpkin spice lattes return. heaven.

these are my wildflowers! yes, i am proud of them. they get watered every evening after work.

then there is dinner. exersise (sometimes - im getting better!). housekeeping. and more painting.
my head hits the pillow around 11pm - and i am usually asleep before my head hits the pillow.



  1. I love that you paint in the morning! And that you make both of your lunches. You are so cute. An hour drive to

    See you soon!

  2. you should try a pumpkin spice americano. iced is delicious.

  3. omg. are you serious. i am doing that asap. good idea!
