We went to a beautiful outdoor wedding this last weekend and though I often complain about the Southern Californian lifestyle- I must say that I did appreciate the amazing October weather and the fact that I could wear a little dress, strappy shoes and sunglasses at the end of October. It was at the Hotel Del which is an amazing place to spend the evening- just lovely!!

So as usual life has been busy and crazy every day is filled with more and more stuff! Last week I taught a workshop at USD called the Art of Expressing Yourself-where we take time to freewrite and reflect through text and then create art with our reflections. This workshop is always wonderful especially with college students who it seems are often too busy to take time for reflection and creativity.

Boy is life bittersweet, when things are up and feeling so on track, it is inevitable that life will pull the rug out from under you. Though this has been theme of my last week, I have tried to turn these challenges into something positive and put my energy into art and my creative process. Tomorrow is Monday and I am hoping for a better week!

So I traveled up to Laguna Beach on Saturday to give a museum/gallery tour for the University of San Diego's Board of Trustees. Boy was that nerve racking!! I had to be on very good behavior, which is not that hard but I was nervous about not offending anyone and being happy and upbeat the whole time!! The worst part for me was my wardrobe- I was nicely asked to wear white shirt and kaki pants and then wear a USD scarf around my neck. One of the galleries that I walked into, I was asked if I was a flight attendant...so I had to walk around Laguna looking like a flight attendant...great eh? Oh well, I was paid very nicely and it was actually a lot of fun to spend a day dedicated to fine art. If you haven't been to the Laguna Museum...go...they always have really fun pop art exhibits come through and it sits a top a lovely cliff overlooking the ocean. Sunday, I spent cleaning my art room, unloading and cleaning my car and hanging out with Andy. A nice clean art room just made me want to create so I started on some more art and made another mess, oh well!
