This is how I feel right now, and I am doing it and I am painting up a storm, still and I promise I will have something to show soon, I hope :-). From my Tumblr Blog:

I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud.
And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection
of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes.
I want to eat cold tangerines and sing out loud in the car with the windows open
and wear pink shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down,
and I want everyday to make God belly laugh,
glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift.
-Shauna Niequist-
Happy Saturday! XOXO

I like this Annie. The life I want to live is a little different than this of course, but the point is, I want to live it with zest & joy & enthusiasm... in my own way.
:) good catching up w/ you today... hope we can get together soon.
