They have three citrus trees in their backyard. Much to the delight of my daughter, we filled boxes with fresh picked oranges, lemons and grapefruit.
The bizarre shapes of desert cactus are fascinating. I loved strolling through the neighborhood and taking it all in (all the while praying that my adventurous 3 year old wouldn't impale herself as she raced from plant to plant).
We swam. We soaked up the sun.
We relaxed (something I can't say happens too often with a toddler and a pre-schooler underfoot). Thank you mom and dad!!
I'm happy to be back though--when I'm away from work for too long, I feel this pull, this longing to dive back in. To create--to PLAY.
I also had a bit of time to think. To move my business forward, I need to re-prioritize how I'm spending my working hours.
Holding this space to write feels really good--I enjoy having a blog. I will continue to share new work and progress as it unfolds. But there will be weeks where I need to spend my time elsewhere.
To those of you who read on a regular basis, I am so grateful. Bear with me through these growing pains.
