Creative Genes

This week I am grateful for being in a family where creativity is part of the general way of being and living. We have been the recipients of many gorgeous (really, too many to start listing) and creative presents over the years but this is our most recent gift.

My sister’s husband when snowed in a couple of weeks ago used the time to design a board game for the boys.

When it was completed she painted and decorated it including photos of the boys at the castle windows.

The Atlas and Flip have decided to call it ‘storming the keep’.

Today I am grateful for all our awesome extended family and for this very cool game from my multi-talented brother-in-law and multi-talented sister-in-law (who has a new EP coming out soon!). I love that being around creativity makes me want to be more creative myself. I like the huge variety of ways in which we can be creative and the fact it is a process that brings us and others joy.

I also like people like Juliet who is one of my new blogging friends and who took Bounce and I out for a cupcake this week.

Just because she is lovely.

My world feels very full of creative, kind, generous, thoughtful, funny, awesome people – near and far.

I love that.

What are you grateful for?
