I wandered in two Christmases ago and was enamored.
I looked at each item, and my soul seemed to sing.
As I wandered, I touched each piece and took in the stories that each told.
Words upon art were calling my attention as if I were reading them for the first time.
Soar, Dance, Sing, Loved, Twirl, Cherished, Worthy
They were touching a part of my heart that I had long ignored.
I walked out of the studio that Christmas with an ornament that said, Be You.
For some reason it was calling my name, but I had yet to know why.
The following January, the dots began to connect.
I began a journey to my heart to find my true self. In order to Be You, I needed to find out who that You was.
This journey led me to Kim, the creativity behind The Orange Pebble Studio.
Tonight, Kim graciously hosted us in her studio for one last girl's night before Finley comes home.
Kim's studio is filled with all things creative.
There are no rules.
There are no expectations.
.... just the invitation to create,
to find the beauty in the mistakes.
As the night went on, we found ourselves worrying less and playing more.
...allowing our hands to work, and our hearts to sing.
We made room for grace and found great freedom in letting go.
Thank you, Kim.... for a night that really wasn't about creation, but the creating.
