This weekend marks the official end of summer in our household. We live by the academic calendar, so in a sense next week, when classes resume, is the beginning of a new year!
I'm not heading back to school, though, which is a strange and wonderful feeling at the same time. I love to learn in a classroom setting, but I am really enjoying the beginnings of this new, more creative phase in my life.
A lot has changed in the last several months. I have begun drawing again; something I haven't really done since my high school days (more than six years ago). I have taken a big chance and begun to share my work with others through blogging and my Etsy shop. Everyone has been really supportive of my work, and I am so grateful for that! This "year" will be different for me, but in a really positive way I think.
To mark the last weekend of summer, A. and I are determined to make some fun plans. On Saturday I think we will head to Bar Harbor for some food, sun, and a movie at one of our favorite little places. We may even make a day of it and pack a picnic! Tonight or Sunday we will probably check out the Folk Festival - one of the biggest yearly events in Maine. It's always fun to grab some food, check out the crafts and listen to the great music playing throughout the small (!) city of Bangor.
What are your plans for the weekend?
P.S. My latest print (above), Rain Delay, can be found now in the shop!
