It's been a very long time since I last visited this space. I've missed you--and today, I'm so excited to share with you my recently overhauled website (woohoo!). Note: After this post, I will also no longer be using my wordpress blog address (you can follow along on my blog at KellyAngelovic.com if you are so inclined).
For those of you who don't know me very well, let me introduce myself. My most significant roles include mom (two little ages 6 and 3), artist, and wife (not necessarily in that order). Incomprehensive as it is, these titles do provide an accurate overview.
I'm approaching (next month) a birthday that marks both the end and the beginning of a decade. Birthdays always have me feeling a bit introspective, and this is a big one. My life isn't just cupcakes and rainbows--we all have our demons and our lessons to learn here. And let's be honest, being here can be pretty rough, especially for those of us with a sensitive constitution.
When I step back and survey the landscape of my reality though, I am filled, top to bottom, with gratitude.
Outside in the real world--that is a whole different story. We seem to be, as a country, somewhere... new, somewhere that I haven't yet experienced (the anger, the fear, the intensity) and I'm uneasy about what's lies ahead.
Our light outweighs our darkness though--I truly believe that. Looking into the joy-filled eyes of my 3 year old or listening to the infectious laughter of my 1st grader, I have a front row seat to all that is beautiful and good in humanity.
Love your people, even (especially) when you disagree, when the differences seem too high and wide to overcome. We need each other right now.
