1. LISTENING: While in the process of transitioning from teaching to full-time artist, I can’t get enough of the Second Life podcast. Over the past 50 episodes, host Hillary Kerr has interviewed countless big names about their career change journeys. If you love How I Built This, this podcast is for you.
2. READING: I discovered this book through Audible. It is the second book I have read (er, listened to) from Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club. While almost everything I read comes vetted by a friend, I reasoned that Reese and I would surely hit it off should we ever meet and wasn’t disappointed.
3. FOLLOWING: Watercolor is so much harder than it looks. Once you lose the crisp unpainted white of your paper, you can’t get it back. Along with her perfectly placed brush strokes, Caitlin McGauley is a master of leaving just enough white to pop against her bright pallet.
4. LOVING: I love the small luxury of having fresh flowers in the house. I recently came across the work of local florist Margot Blair and was thrilled to discover her studio is right around the corner. Her Margot Minis are perfect for hostess gifts or those weeks when you want to treat-yo-self.
