saying “welcome back” to myself

hello dear readers!

it’s been almost 2 months since i wrote a blog post and almost as long since i posted on the avenues of artistry facebook page.  throughout this sweet hiatus i did not forget about avenues of artistry social media or internet presence. rather, i have been collecting photos to post here and articles to post on the facebook page.

i consciously chose to take a pronounced break during my thesis writing to focus on finishing my master’s degree in Integrative Health with a certificate in Wellness Coaching.  april to may was a whirlwind of finishing my thesis and presenting my work to faculty and peers. the process of the thesis was perhaps one of the most stressful experiences of my life. once i completed  the thesis process i was relieved but i could feel the stress and exhaustion that had built up in my body.


graduation at Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco

at the end of may i was lucky to be able to celebrate my graduation with my family and my birthday with friends, as well as have some delicious alone time. june has been about celebrating love with the marriage of good friends and spending time reconnecting with myself. finding balance as a way to prepare for diving into my career.

i want to share with you the website i made for my academic e-portfolio. please feel free to take a look at it and contact me with questions or feed back. unless you’re my mom….. this is a prototype for the next steps in my career and i look forward to continue sharing with you as things unfold! please remember the art images images are copyrighted and may not be used without my permission.

here are some of my favorite photos i’ve taken over the last few months to let you know what i have been up to. hope you enjoy them!

so glad to be back!
