Dear June, You always sneak up on me. It's always "Happy New Year" and then WTF-it's-JUNE? Fine. This year has been slow and painful so the fact that it's June is just proof that the world keeps on turning so get over it. I have been schooled this year on all kinds of things - from poison ivy to lasers. Auto-immune diseases to broken backs to degenerating joints. It's kind of been ridiculous. BUT I declare JUNE to be where I put all of that nastiness to good use and make something awesomely productive out of it.
GOALS for JUNE:
- Finish 4 large paintings
- Collaborate with an inspiring artist pal
- Wear shorts + skirts instead of ALWAYS tanks + jeans
- Continue my cycling/Pilates workouts
- Faithfully apply sunscreen
- Finish 6 small paintings
- Blog less
- Photograph more
- Solve a mystery
- Indulge in Happy Hour
- BE IN THE MOMENT
- Go on 2 dates with Dan
- Write 4 postcards
- Be MORE fierce
No big things. Just small, radically important bits to hopefully put a slow curve in the direction 2012 has been taken. A slow + steady turn around. THIS. IS. WHERE. IT. HAPPENS. It's up to you, June.
HEY. Last June - LINKwithLOVE.org was born and that tells me that June has a history of amazing things. AND that sometimes things that are bummers are just challenges to make things better (and PS, we need 823 more 'likes' on Facebook to get to 5000. That would be an AWESOME way to nail a Friday, right?)
Speaking of LINKwithlove.org - the keytags are back and they are going fast AGAIN. This is the last round of keytags and we are simply raising enough money to keep things going. They are only $3 for a pretty set of 2... one you keep and one you give away. So easy. Such a good looking reminder to do our best online. GET YOURS before they are gone.
Today: gentle intention that there is goodness here. OH. AND PAINTING. It's happening today. ( @kalbarteski on Instagram for the feed)
