But seriously Hendrick’s gin is delicious —go ahead and splurge a little.
On a more serious note: I used to paint. There was a time when I had paint in my hair and on my feet… which ultimately ended up on everything I owned. No matter, I loved it. I sold my paintings on Etsy and regret selling a few of my favourites. My mind kept wondering back to painting this summer and with a little nudge from Rachel, I finally bought new painting supplies. Oils are my favourite; no matter how annoyingly difficult it is somehow I always end up going back to them. Painting is relaxing, I don’t think it matters if you are any good, you should just paint because you like to. My college quad-mate introduced me to painting and I remember she told me I could turn any mistake into a flower. Best advice ever. Her words relieved any tension I had for perfection.
crazy to Michael’s and paint something! xo, Amber
