I had a bit of extra time yesterday morning to stop at a local coffee shop in North Park- Coffee & Tea Collective. It has been a long time since I had been there since we moved out of that area years ago when we sold The Tiny Spanish Bungalow before moving to Spain.
It was an enjoyable visit as it always had been in the past and I finally got to see a Betty Larkin mural up close and in person. Wow- just wow.
I realize more and more how important it is to begin my work days with creatively inspiring spaces. Whether it’s as simple as visiting a thoughtfully designed coffee shop or dropping down a Pinterest hole for a few minutes, it really super charges my creative fire and fuels me for a great day of creative work.
And so I begin my day wrapping up a writing assignment for Marketpath as well as a website migration for Design4Corners, my most favorite project on my plate as of late. When I do have time and energy at night after all my parenting responsibilities have ended for the day, I have been chipping away at making online courses on Teachable sharing all the things I know and do to sustain as a full-time freelancer. I’ve been rather quiet about that initiative due to the fact that the build-out is coming at a snail’s pace, but as soon as it’s ready to rock I will announce it.
Ok, I’ve blogged, now I feel ready to start my day!
More to come.
