A few months ago i was reaching for my glasses and WHEW! flew right off the table onto the floor and broke in two. Ever since then I’ve been MacGyvering it back together with tape and hot glue (so cool, I know) because I had too much going on to save up for some new ones and a new eye checkup.
Luckily, I have an amazing human in my life who was willing to push me forward and help me take care of myself – I should be getting my brand new glasses in a couple of days :) So Today’s MUCH LOVE MONDAY is: Seeing Beautiful
This past week I had a very stressful move (which is a little redundant, since 99% of all moves are stressful) but for real… I am so glad it’s over.
My move is an adjustment, it’s a smaller place, new people, different set of rules, but as the days pass and I start to clean and unpack and spend time, I am really enjoying and appreciating it.
My new place is in my old neighborhood that I lived in years ago. There are some things I get to go back to, old hangouts, routes etc. But there are also a lot more new things that have really been keeping me exciting, so it feels like a new place.
Either way I had some kind people and lovely friends keep me company over the weekend to really bring down my stress level and lift my spirits. So this Much Love Monday is all about: Finding home and enjoying your space –
This week I am celebrating what a lovely time I was able to have with people I care about. Eating with friends is one of life’s biggest blessings, especially when it’s with someone you really enjoy and makes your life better :)
This week’s Much Love Monday is loving eating together <3

YEARS ago… YEARS I’m tellin ya, I used to participate in this blog thing called Much Love Monday, started by Anna from Much Love Anna. I loved it – it was so positive and really made me think about the things I was thankful for. I feel like I really need that again in my life (there is so much negativity on the internet these days. )
So I am bringing back Much Love Monday for this blog, starting with the beginning of May: May 1 2017. May Day, Beltane, Merryiest Rabbit Rabbit Day.
So on this first Much Love Monday, I love spring, Beltane flowers, festivals, fetes. Happy Monday :)
Ive been having an extra hard time drawing my most recent comic – usually i can throw down a page in less then a day, but this week’s was very emotional for me to draw so i would just sit at my drawing table and stare at the page. Yesterday was so beautiful, i wanted to be out and about but everyone was busy and I was left alone. SO INSTEAD – i rode my bike to a grassy corner of our tiny town and sat in the soft green grass until i FINISHED. My only company was Karen O. and the tree i was sitting under, shading me from the heavy sun. When I finished I layed down under the tree and closed my eyes contently – and that is why this week’s MLM is dedicated to that soft grass – couldn’t have done it without you!
Yesterday i went on a 6-mile bike ride for the first time since last summer and it was AMAZING. Im in Vermont, in the mountains, and its 40 degrees in the middle of February? Heck YES i am going to go on BIKE RIDES! IM going to keep riding too, for as long as i can

Ok, i am FULLY aware of the fact that the reason why this winter has been so warm is because of Global Warming and I absolutely agree that it’s horrible and everything… and to be honest I have really missed having a good hard winter (i havent even had a chance to make a snowman…) But instead of always complaing about weather, if its too hot or too cold or to blah blah blah – why not appreciate what you have when you have it? Ive been able to wear regular shoes instead of boots all week, I’ve had my windows open breathing fresh cool mountain air, and i went on TWO Bike rides in February… IN FEBRUARY!!!! You can’t say thats not awesome.
