My social media updates are the best portrayal of my experience in different cities. Below are some of my updates from the Windy City, Chicago.
“Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.”
Like family and friends who have become family; like butterflies and sunny skies, leaves crunching beneath your feet and your favorite latte; like sunrises and sunsets, sandy toes and oceans waves creating a symphony as they crash into the shore; like shared smiles, shared laughter and shared moments frozen in time; like singing off key (and sometimes without knowing all the right words) to your favorite song on the radio.
People matter. Moments matter. Live for those.
A Perfect Autumn Day
This may in fact be a perfect autumn day as I wait for my cinnamon spice tea to cool so I can take a sip. Already I know it will be a sweet treat as the aroma tantalizes my senses. There is just enough of a breeze in the air to shake some leaves from the trees, but it looks like they were ready to go anyway. There is just enough wind from above to produce rapidly moving white clouds against a perfect blue sky. And the sun provides just enough warmth to make the walk back home (in my boots, light jacket and patterned scarf) heavenly.

Photo Shoots in Chi-Town
Just finished a product photo shoot with a Chicago photographer, which showcases all of the graphic creations I’ve made for the JWatson Creative brand while on the road this year. Honestly it was inspiring to see the whole lot in front of the camera, styled nicely and beaming with coordinated colors. I feel like I’ve come such a long way (literally and figuratively!!!!!) and I’m looking forward to the home stretch of this journey.
