Reintegrating and life ainโ€™t easy

It’s been over a week since I returned from the Sovereign Rising retreat and I’m still out of it.

My beautiful babies wrote me this love note in the driveway and I ugly cried so hard. I missed them so much!

That’s the biggest thing I learned while I was away. I am so incredibly grateful for my family that the love tends to leak out of the corners of my eyes. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ข

I miss all of the wonderful women I met so intensely. I miss that amazing sense of community and acceptance. I miss the quiet of the Maine woods. I miss the freedom of not owing anybody a damn thing. I actually crave tent sleeping. Seriously. Who the fuck am I now? I have been all about non-country living for decades and now all I want is to be outside. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

I have lost my mom voice. I can’t even dredge up that deep scary voice that terrifies young children and adults alike. I’m tired of being scary. I’m still creepy as fuck but I don’t want to be loud with anything other than laughter. ๐Ÿ˜‚ #cackleoutloud

I have changed so very much from four days surrounded by nature and inspiring women. I am so much closer to ME. I look at my life and things are shifting…slowly.

This girl came back with me and I’m so glad I found her again. ๐Ÿ˜

Art Journaling 6.19

I went down the art journaling rabbit hole today.

It started on Pinterest with an interesting tutorial for drawing flowers. I sketched those this morning and then ran the toddler to the dentist.

After the dentist I decided to do a full page of flowers. I used a Tombow marker because it was already in my hand. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Note to self. Separate out the waterproof markers so I grab them first instead of the water soluble markers. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

I drew several flowers on a half assed background in my journal. Then I used a water brush and Jane Davenport watercolor paints to color in the flowers & background.

I love how it turned out!

And here’s a pic of it in the sun with one happy overheated chihuahua. ๐Ÿ˜‚
