Starting Over

Almost five years ago, my life went off the rails.  Yep, it de-railed big-time.  Someone in their fifties shouldn't be totally re-setting their life.  Yet, that's exactly what I did.

The death of my parents, coupled with the death of my marriage, adding in death of a job I adored... well, there I was.  Fumbling-bumbling at life.

I moved.  I cried.  I was numb for a while... and then the most amazing thing happened.  I met the true love of my life.  And as quickly as my life had de-railed, we hit the ground running.

This past year has been amazing.  To think I went so long without knowing what an easy, comfortable love is!

We have been experiencing life in full bloom.  Traveling.  Celebrating family.  And simply enjoying the simple things in life.  Yes, we're settling in.

It has taken me a while to get back to what I love doing in the studio -- partly because I've been so busy enjoying our day today --  and I honestly would not be here doing it if it weren't for him. I couldn't be happier.  And he says, neither could he.  So there you have it, from death truly does come re-birth.

Now, I could have started a new blog in honor of this rebirth of myself, but honestly, I didn't want to lose the history of the things that lead up to the almost five-year gap.  So I kept the history, and simply renamed it, "Every Little Thing."  We'll see how it develops.  I envision exactly what the tag line says, "snapshots from the studio and snippets from life."  Stay tuned.
