"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Around Here

Around here we've been getting into our new year grove, eating lots of comforting soups, going on icy hikes, fighting off various wintertime illnesses, and putting the kids to bed early. (I love that it gets dark around 5:30 because then the kids fall asleep easier. It's much better than the 9:00 pm sundown we get to deal with in the summertime.)

This month, we are a playful family (one of our monthly family values, which you can read more about here), so we've been doing fun things together as a family every evening. We play games or make a treat together. We've already gone swimming twice this week. Brrr.

And as per usual, we've been doing lots of art and projects around the house. Here's a look at all the animal sketches I did for my December days of Wildlife illustration series:

By request, I turned the baby giraffe into a printable:

It is available for free in my shop if you'd like to have your very own version. Consider it a little thank you for coming by for a visit!

What are you doing these days? I'm loving the cozy and quiet evenings, and of course the snow!
