January Thaw

Winter is my season of renewal.

When I am worn down and weary at the end of the year I often think to myself, "I can't wait to stay in my pajamas and sleep for a week" but when the time for rest comes around in January I often find myself still out seeking a story to capture. Seeking something precious to be a part of. Nurturing the renewed passion for everything I love. 

I endure the hectic busy seasons of summer and fall and slide across the finish line burnt out, aching, with every ounce of creativity spent. And then January comes and I live for the abundance of family and personal exploration time that I get in the winter. A new start, new goals, new plans... and rekindled joy for the gift of being present in today.
