Some lovely people in my Chicago neighborhood really brightened up my morning walk today 💖
Welcome to my first Wellness Wednesday!
Normally i try to go for a run every morning, but this morning was pretty cold so i went on a short walk and came back to do something more simple: Make my BED!
Making your bed in the morning is an easy and simple way to boost yourself up at the beginning of the day. It’s a small gesture, but its an accomplishment, and I know it helps me with my anxiety personally.
Give it a try!
Best part is that at the end of the day when you are ready to rest and relax after your day, you can come back to a beautiful made up bed – it’s a great feeling!
I hope this little thing helps you today, and as always I hope you are staying safe and healthy. It’s ok to be sad and overwhelmed right now, so make sure you are taking care of yourself.
Normally I’d do something else on Tuesday, BUT today is special. It’s March 31! Marchtober, or QuarantineOween as I like to call it. Did you celebrate today? I dressed up as a doe 🦌
While I’m in Quarantine I will be doing daily #hashtag posts to keep not only my spirit up, but others!
Mondays are actually going to be going back to a hashtag post i used to do years ago, but let fell by the wayside. Well i think now is the perfect time to bring it back.
That’s right everyone: Much Love Monday
It’s Monday and it’s a great beautiful day. I went for a run and stopped at a fav local neighborhood place, Beans and Bagels. They’re doing window service for Safety, and everyone in line was friendly and respectful. I got a donut and cold brew and walked home – it was perfect. Sun was out, flowers are budding, robin birds flew up and chirped at me – it was the perfect way to start my Monday morning.
I hope all of you out there are having a Monday full love something lovely.
Look, we are having a MOMENT in history, and it’s not a great moment. And to get out of this quickly and safely we have to STAY HOME – and in order to stay home and not lose our gawdamn minds we have to start having a little fun. Until Quarantine is over I will be doing a:
Much Love Monday
Good News Tues / Tasty Tuesday
Fancy Frock Friday / Fan Art Friday
Starting today with #Throwback thursday : Two years ago today I was on a plane to Iceland!
As today is Ash Wednesday in the year of our Lord 2020, it marks the 10th anniversary of this BLOG! (Hurray!)
Yes indeed, what a strange 10 years it has been. I started the blog when I was 24 years old as a way to share my daily life during the Lenten season. Fun Fact: I have not celebrated Lent since that year. 🤷🏻♀️
Instead this blog morphed into random posts as I grew as a person and as an artist. It started at the beginning of my comics career (said loosely, cuz I don’t do that as a career but I do it much more professionally now I guess?). It’s amazing to think about the person that I was back then. It wasn’t bad – in fact it was really really good – but I had a lot to go through and a lot of growing to do still.
I’ve never been good at blogging, even back when I cared way more about this blog. So it never became what I really wanted it to be… but I’m proud of the work that I have accomplished in the past 10 years. For real – use the search to look back at the first posts – It’s pretty hilarious. It’s fun to see how I used to draw, how I used to be, how I used to think and feel. I feel pretty privileged to have something like that in my life I can look back on.
To anyone reading this: if you’ve been with me a long time thank you for coming along on the ride.
If you are just seeing this in passing and visiting for the first time I hope it brightens your day;j as I hope everything I post to the internet world does.
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away – have you found the Angela o your Dwight?
