The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Race Weekend

~~Dustin had two races last weekend. Saturday was a Criterium Race. It's a cycling only race where they ride big laps. (8/1oths of a mile) It's very fast paced and fun to watch. The length is 30 minutes plus 3 laps. Dustin pushed hard and even had a sprint finish. He placed 2nd in his category which is awesome considering it was his first Crit.
~~Sunday he had a duathlon. (Run-bike-run) I could tell at transition that he was a little behind his normal bike time. (Hmmm. Wonder why he would be sore on the bike?) But he picked it up on the run and blew past people. He finished 1st in his age group. I have to brag on him because I don't think his friends and family really know how good he is. He's so modest about it.

(Sorry about the blurry pictures! I tried something different this time when I was editing and it doesn't look like it worked, lol.)
~~I've been feeling so much better this week. Thank You Lord! I needed a good week. I've even been out running the last two evenings in a row which feels wonderful! I also feel so inspired creatively. All I want to do is paint. Want is the word though. Life has been busy and fun and there isn't always a lot of quiet time in the Summer. I did stay up until 2:30 in the morning on Tuesday though. I just needed some art time.
~~Well, the morning is already flying by and I've got to get busy. Just wanted to check in.
Have a great Thursday!

Summer just doesn't have enough time, does it? It seemed to when I was younger, but now it goes fast!

Hi Kasie

Your husband is doing so well in all of his races. Congratulations to him. It looks as though he has an awesome support team and that would have to contribute to his success.

I love the photos of your gorgeous girls.

I hope that more opportunities present themself so that you can spend time painiting.

It sounds as though your family is enjoying your summer.

Lots of love and hugs

I need to exercise more...I gained alot of weight (sedentary lifestyle) over the last 5 years ...lost 15 so far ..yay! But still have alot more to go!! Wish I enjoyed athletics like y'all do, it would make it easier for me...I think?? :)
