That is awesome!!! The words that came out of my mouth when I saw it were, "Oh, I love that Kate!"
I didn't post anything about it. I think that this is what I've been holding inside for the past 3 months. I knew something beauitful was in me! (a baby too!) I have found a new outlet for my stress and anxiety! Lately I feel like I'm going to burst. The weather has never affected me so much. I remember last year at this time, I had a new baby so shouldn't I have felt like I do now? I just don't get it. The other day it was 59 degrees out! I spent all morning in the yard and then lauryn and I spent all afternoon at the play area. Anyway, I think that I'm all out of solutions for this seasonal depression crap. Spring break is next week. I'm trying to make it hour by hour!! someone help me!!
I hear ya girl! We have the same weather things where it's beautiful and warm and I feel alive and then then next day there is snow on the ground or the sky is massively gray. I just keep saying to myself, "that nice weather will be back...I just got a sample." I wish I had answers for you (and me), but if it's any consolation, you've got a friend down there in the trenches. And if things get bad, there is always the option of a low dose of Fluoxetine (generic prozac) which has been approved to take during pregnancy. I LOVE your art Kate...it's so beautiful. And, never underestimate the power of driving somewhere while listening to a great Stevie Wonder song!
Oh, I also wanted to say that the beautiful picture you made for me for Christmas with the photo of you and me and the flower photos is hung on the wall and everytime I pass it I feel happy. It's so bright and beautiful and makes me feel alive when I look at it.
Sorry...I have one more thing to say;)I remember Oprah talking about her new school she built in Africa for girls. She spent tons of money making it totally beautiful inside and people criticized her for that because most of these girls came from poor families. Her response was that Beauty inspires greatness! So surrounding yourself with your beautiful paintings and the bright colors in your home helps too.
Kelli! I love you!!! Thanks for the posts!
