Last May, before we knew we would be buying a house and all of the craziness that would bring with it, I signed up to take a workshop taught by my favorite illustrator Heather Ross. In between packing, moving, settling in and every other part of life I have been trying to make a little time to sketch a bit and get inspired. I've been so busy with everything that is life, that it has suddenly snuck up on me. I'm going to New York on Friday! This Friday! I'll be gone for six days! Six days away from my family. It still doesn't seem real. The only nights I have spent away from Gianna are when Dean was born. Otherwise I've been home for every bed time and almost every nap time for both of them for their entire lives. This will be a big change for all of us.
I'll have one free day in the city on Saturday to do whatever I want. The rest of the days I'll be in the workshop or traveling. I'm starting to compile a list of places I want to visit: Purl Soho, the Orla Kiely Store, the Matisse exhibit at the MoMA, Eataly, Dean & Deluca... I'd love some suggestions too! The whole concept of being alone for more than a few hours is really foreign to me. I'm really excited but also nervous and a bit sad. I'm mainly excited though!
