Chapter 39 – “Life’s What You Make It”

In January 2016 I published my first art book.  This book is a collection of my doodle art and watercolor paintings.  With each painting I have told a story from my life and/or personal experience from my journey on being an artist.  I’m excited to share with you one chapter from my book.  This week is Chapter Number 39: “Life’s What You Make It”.

Tim and I have a rather unique lifestyle.  Tim works in the construction industry which means we have to go where the building project is located.  (Which is usually a different town.)  In the past four years, we have moved thirteen times.  That means packing boxes, loading a U-Haul with boxes and furniture, traveling to the new location and then unloading and unpacking.

We have lived in different places from Las Vegas, Nevada to New Orleans, Louisiana and many points in between.

Granted it isn’t a lifestyle that most people could or would even want to have.  I suppose if we put our focus on all the packing and moving we couldn’t handle it very well either.  However, we have chosen not to make that our focus.  Instead our focus is on being in a new place, seeing new things and experiencing new adventures. And it has really been so much fun!!!
