I am thankful that my sister was offered a job in Boise, giving my husband and I an excuse to move back now instead of later. I am thankful to be back in Boise, where I get to experience four seasons, a 25+ mile greenbelt that runs along the river thru town, and a summer which is still hot, but not humid. I am thankful to be living in the same town as my sister, which I've not had in so many years. She is literally just a mile from me now! I am thankful for the trips that my husband and I made into Montana and northern Idaho this past year, which are both so incredibly beautiful! And I am thankful for all of my online friends who happily welcomed me back!
I am feeling very good about 2014 and have high hopes that everything will start coming together and running smoothly again. I want to focus again on my art. I want to do larger paintings, real painting, not in my sketchbook. I want to SELL my work. I want to start an Urban Sketchers group (which I'm already working on) and keep up with my blog and my art friends online. And I want to buy a house. That doesn't seem too unreasonable. I think that is all achievable.
