What a fantastic day! The lovely Joy picked me up for a little painting party at Jamie’s house. I honestly haven’t seriously dabbled in paint for many years. I was always one to draw with a pencil because I did not think I was talented enough to paint. Well, I have felt very endearing and always had the desire to try painting out (I love art!). Obviously, I am no expert, but I think I have a new found hobby. Painting is a huge stress-reliever—also, great for improving the posture! Thank you Joy and Jamie for the encouragement to revive my artistic side; I am hooked! I plan to venture to Michael’s craft store to start my collection of acrylic paints and brushes. I think Jamie and I have a “painting date” this Monday, definitely excited!
