This was a lovely weekend that brought a mix of activities. Burritos and margaritas with my husband at our favorite little stop on Friday. An art opening and sushi downtown on Saturday. Power washing the house on Sunday (my dad taught me how to do this and it was so much fun!). It was nice to have an easygoing approach to the weekend, to do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. I'd like to incorporate this mindset into the new week. I'm going to try to ease into things, and do them when the timing seems right, to be a little kinder to myself.

If I need inspiration, I'm going to think of these amazing paintings by Tracy Rocca. Aren't they incredible? In her artist's statement, she writes, "The imagery I use arises from, first, consistent observation and, second, a conscious effort to slow down." If this kind of beauty stems from a more ease-minded approach, I'm definitely on board!
