Take a seat


Sometimes, you just need a place to sit. I feel like that’s a very Forrest Gump-like thing to say, but it’s true! We all know how easy it is to get wrapped up in the chaotic nature of life and not take time to relax – and do the things you love the most.

Recently, I was talking to a friend who felt like she wasn’t enjoying life like she used to…not doing the things that made her happy. We talked and decided that she needed to make a list of all of her favorite activities and start crossing them off!

I challenge you to try this today. What brings you the most joy? Running? (not me, but way to go if that’s your thing!) Painting? Spending time with friends? Eating peanut butter m & ms until you’re at stomach ache-status? (much more my style!) Whatever it may be, I hope you can take time this Thanksgiving week to enjoy your favorite thing!

**News update: the Artisans Gallery had to be rescheduled due to some construction happening downtown…will be sure to let you know when the next date is! Also….I’m happy to announce that Simply M prints will be for sale at Wall Candy, a wonderful new framing store in my hometown of Columbia! It’s located on the square – please swing by and check out not only my stuff, but some great work by local artists!**
