In the Notebook Allie tells Noah that she wants a room that overlooks the water so she can paint. I've asked David for the same thing but overlooking the rain forest...a girl can dream. This isn't common knowledge but I love to paint to relax. Not crazy intense paintings though. My attention span for any type of project is about an hour. I don't do crafts that involve multiple coats, days of drying, taping, sanding. I like the instant gratification kind of crafts. But this past Thursday I had the day off and I spent quite some time painting these two paintings, making vday decor, and listening to 90's and early 2000's love songs. It was great. Those times are when my heart smiles.
