Month in Review

Although I’m taking some space from regular blogging, I wanted to share May’s highlights coupled with Savvy Sources.

May was a sweet month filled with assorted joys—spending a winery day with my parents, attending the Taos writing workshop, sipping tea at Laduree, hearing Thievery Corporation accompanied by an orchestra at The Kennedy Center, watching the live stream as Anita Krajnc was found not guilty, attending and hosting celebrations for a friend who wrote the Hemingway spy book, enjoying a dinner in honor of four teachers’ 15-year anniversary at Tranquil Space, doing a session with my writing teacher, getting studios “springified,” collaborating with clients, spending time in my art journal, hosting the Art + Yoga retreat in West Virginia, eating outside, playing with peonies, and the tiny moments in between.

What are some of your May highlights?
