perfect stay-cation

our DLP challenge this week is to choose a fantasy vacation spot,
and create a list of things to take along.
and while a long list of faraway places immediately came to my mind….

those other important things on my heart intervened…..

and i realized that sometimes just taking a few minutes right where you are
can be the best getaway of all.

{and yes, with a 13-week old puppy to consider,
the thought of a ten-minute retreat in my favorite chair 
is definitely a fantasy vacation!  :)))) }

{supplies used for DLP week fifty challenge:
moleskine planner, fabriano artistico 140 HP paper, pitt pens, micron pens, 
derwent watercolor/inktense pencils, 6B pencil, white gelly roll pen, washi tape}

tucked away in the nooks and crannies of the 
North Carolina Appalachian mountains 
are rows and rows of evergreen firs and pines
that will someday be brilliantly decorated in celebration
of the most important day of the entire year!

grow strong, little tree-babies!

{supplies used to journal one of my favorite views from
our neighborhood gazebo in banner elk:
moleskine watercolor journal, koi watercolor, derwent inktense pencils,
pitt pens, micron pens, 6B graphite pencil}
