I know this little blog of mine has turned into a serious baby explosion this year so I am sort of shocked myself that I have something different to share. And, it's drawing! Waaaaaay back in my pre-baby days I used to do some digital illustration as a hobby and really enjoyed it. But for lack of time, and lets face it, complete and total exhaustion, most of my hobbies are on a temporary hiatus while I marvel at the little life I created and how quickly he is growing up. Oh wait, was I talking about babies again? I'm sorry, back to the topic at hand! A friend asked me to do some illustration work for her health and wellness publication and I jumped at the chance. I downloaded Sketchbook Pro on my iPad and did most of the work on that because it was so portable for me to work on wherever and whenever. I really enjoyed working on these and it felt great to be doing something creative again. The irony though is that I spent hours drawing yoga poses and now I feel like I need yoga class myself. I have always loved yoga and definitely miss the freedom I used to have to attend classes whenever I wanted. Now I need to be a bit more disciplined to work on practicing yoga at home in spite of the constant distractions...baby, dinner, dog barking, cleaning, baby, you get the idea! I've also made a promise, now that Edwin is older, to start going to either a yoga or a meditation class on Tuesday nights. Kind of like a date night with myself! I hope to teach him about these wonderful practices (yoga, meditation, AND drawing) someday so I need to do my best to keep them going in my own life in spite of the distractions and exhaustion that comes with being a new mom. Wish me luck!
