In the late 1980's, I sat on the front porch of our house, looked out into the distance,  and began to draw what I saw.  My dad gave me some lessons on how to draw trees, but he let me just draw how I saw things.  I scanned the drawing I made back then and placed it in my journal.

As I prepare to move into our new home starting today, I think about all the houses where I have lived and left.   I think about all the moments and memories.   Although I am ready to be in our new home, I took sometime to journal about our current home and the moments we lived in this place.

Because I know this coming week will be especially busy, I will take a short break.  I will be exercising my creativity as I begin to create a home for my family.  In the meantime, I wish you precious creative days.
