Happy summer! Holy moly! I can’t believe how fast this year is going! I remember when I was a kid, it felt like time dragged on sooooo sloooooowlyyyyyyy… it felt like summer vacation, Christmas, my birthday (insert occasion) would NEVER get here! As I’ve gotten older though, time has sped up to the point that now that I have kids, I feel like we’re flying through life at hyper speed! Where’s the break?! Get what I did there? Break/brake? Ahem… crickets… anyhoo…
In spite of the rat race, I’m pretty militant about finding the time to do stuff that keeps me grounded and helps me cope with daily stress. Besides a weekly yoga practice, walking with my neighbourhood peeps, and the occasional (ok, frequent) chocolate fix, colouring helps to calm me and when I do it I feel like time stands still, just for a while. It also brings me back to my childhood, when I would spend hours with my colouring books and crayons doodling the time away.
This is Fairy Sunny Day, by Christy Croll at Tiddly Inks. A gorgeous image, which brought me so much joy to colour. She reminds me of those lazy summer days as a kid, spent out in the sunshine. Hope yours is happy and sunny too!
