The last month has been a whirlwind of change for me. It all started when my 19 year old son Jackson moved to Texas.
|Us last April in Kansas City|
It is so strange not seeing or talking to my boy everyday. Yet I am managing OK and text or Snapchat him daily!
A welcome change has come in the past month...I have said NO to Can't and dropped nearly TWO sizes and feel fantastic about myself!! I am eating more veggies and fruits along with lean proteins and exercising regularly.

This month I went from sharing my son's laptop to having my OWN iMAC!!! It is pretty dang exciting!!!
I also rewarded myself with a new cut and color last week!! It's shorter and makes me feel young and free!
But perhaps one of the biggest changes this month is the making of a DREAM come true....
I am taking over an established art studio in my town of Maryville..."The Art Experience"!!
I still can't believe it's happening...yet when I look back on my artistic journey I realize it's what I have been working on for so long!
All the classes I have taken, the classes I have taught, the people I've met, this journey I have been on for nearly 7 years...it has all led to this...my very own place to do what I LOVE...what fills me up and gives me wings!!
I officially take over May 1st and am SO EXCITED to begin making the studio MY OWN!! Lots of re-arranging and things to add over the next few months!! By the end of summer we will be in a totally NEW location with new colors (aqua, yellow and red) and whole new feel!!! But for now I will be patient, take one thing at a time and teach, teach, teach. I just know I will be learning, learning, learning, too...lol.
You can stop by our website and check out all we have to offer and be sure and "Like" my Face Book page, too.
As we continue on our Being Me journey I want you to think about Embracing Change this week. We ALL go through change...sometimes it's all good stuff....other times it's hard and scary and yucky. I want you to talk about YOUR changes in your journals this week. How are you growing? What are you learning? Did you see the changes coming? Are you at the end of the changing process, the middle or the end??
Girls, I am so grateful for each of you and love reading your comments and seeing your work. I hope you have a happy and creative week!!! Be sure and share your journals with us in our FB group Mind.Body.Soul.
And remember...you are NEVER behind!! Stop by here to start your Being Me journey today...it's free!!:)
