Since graduating with my master's in art education in May I've eased into summer mode. Summertime always brings with it weddings, family reunions, and beach trips, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing with friends and family. I don't think I fully realized the extent to which I was anxious and consumed by perfectionist tendencies until after officially submitting my thesis in April. It took me about two weeks to ease into summer but once it occurred, my brain completely moved on from thesis and I discovered new amounts of time now available for projects I'd previously had on the back burner. Here are a few highlights from the summer...
My mom made me take this photo in full regalia...I'm glad she did.

After four weeks of renovations at UP Collective, we finally finished our new floors!
I still have more to update you on, particularly in relation to creative projects I have brewing and a couple new paintings.
