my vacation is almost over, and I just don’t want it to end! (does anybody ever want a vacation to end?!) I have to say the last 5 days have been nothing short of perfect. I promise I’ll be back in full blog mode in just another day or so. I sure have missed my little nook of the internet . . .

nothing can bring me down right now! not even that $450 fix for my car! (ouch.) it was sunny, bright and a happiness-filled day. kaley and i had another shoot today. it was amazing as always, and again, i’m extremely inspired by the talent that girl has. i can’t wait to show you some of our new pictures!
we had a lovely lunch at cafe al dente in the rivermarket in kc today. a quaint little place with friendly servers and delicious sandwiches. i’m happy.
today’s images are from my instagram . . . are you followin’???
the past two days were considered my ‘weekend’ and as sad as i am that its over, i’m still smiling because of how great it was! last night, kaley and i attended the radiohead concert in kansas city. radiohead really puts on a great show, their LEDs were amazing! i’m still riding that happiness of hearing my favorite song live . . .
when i went to paris the weather stayed rainy and grey the whole time i was there. chilly, cloudy, borderline stormy days like today always take me back to the way i felt when i was in paris. 4 years later and i’m still having trouble finding just the right words to describe my stay in paris. it was really the best 6 days of my life!
this is just how i’ll always remember paris.
luke is a participant in the 2012 national student juried exhibition at NCECA this year! the national council for the education of ceramic arts (NCECA) is holding its 46th annual conference in just a few short weeks. in seattle, washington, this year’s conference features a lot of work from kansas state university ceramics students (way to represent!) and my beau’s happens to grace the poster promoting the national juried student show!
the reception for the NSJE will be held friday, march 30th from 6 to 8pm at the jacob lawrence gallery at the university of washington.
last weekend for luke’s reception i made these caprese skewer toothpick things. they might have been the best food item at the show, and they were by far the easiest thing ever! a tiny cube of fresh mozzarella cheese, a leaf of basil and a cherry tomato. i splashed a little bit of balsamic vinegar on top, and viola! a delicious salad or appetizer!
happy march??!! can you believe how fast the time goes? when i was a little kid i thought time went so slow, i just wanted to play and make stuff! and now, even my worst nightmare days (like monday, tuesday and wednesday) are gone in the blink of an eye. it reminds me to take every single opportunity to live my life the way i want. especially when it comes to being creative. i need to carve a little more time out for playing with clay. i’ve been so busy making sure i can pay my bills that i haven’t let myself just let loose and get some creating done. (bad me!!)
can you tell i’ve been feeling all weird lately? all of these deep and emotional posts . . . sorry friends. in a bit of a funk!
i’m moving soon, but i don’t know where. i have super-high expectations for where i see myself and my creative profession, and i’m mad at myself for not being there already (which i know is very silly). i know i have some new and exciting things in store for me, and i’m getting a little bit restless in the meantime. i’ve never been one for surprises . . . i like knowing what is going to happen next!
but for now, i’ll stay calm and quiet and be thankful.
this is the firing shed out at work. its quiet this week, and that’s exactly what i need.
