goodies for the gift bags
a vintage suitcase full of papers
oh the washi tape
what the kitchen table really looks like
your story happens this week. it is my fourth retreat this year, and i am really sinking into the getting ready part in a way that feels more excited and less "oh my goodness how will i get it all done." because the getting ready part can be pretty intense as i gather so many things to take with me to a spot along the coast hours away. this time, i am gathering even more art supplies than usual and the colors of everything are just making me feel lighter. as though summer is really here. i can't wait to stand under that light in gearhart. it is so gorgeous there. we are going to have so much fun.
while i am away, my plan is to schedule a few posts (and maybe even send a postcard or two from there). it feels like there is so much to tell you these days. how i wish we could meet for tea...one day soon i hope.
