You know when you run into a friend randomly that you're in a familiar place. This happened to me last week for the first time here in Nashville. And again this week.

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably watched the slow transition of us moving from Ithaca, NY to Nashville, TN. Digging up your roots to replant them in a new city is scary, exciting, crazy, stressful, amazing, hard and beautiful. But things are finally starting to feel like home.

We've got our Tennessee tags and licenses, we're navigating the city without our GPS, our guest room has had 3 visitors, we've hosted 2 house parties and several dinner parties, we've sang karaoke with the locals, we've danced to bluegrass while they filmed a music video, we're going to live music that never came through our small town, we're getting to know our super creative, talented and ready-for-big-things community, I started to teach art classes with The Skillery, I attended my first conference as a presenter, I starting collaborating with these talented Nashville ladies and was just asked to contribute illustrations and lettering for a local magazine. Nick's manifested his music into vinyl, is recording with some really talented musicians and bands, formed his own band, has his first show next Tuesday (!!!) and has even played bass in a recording session with Jars of Clay members.

I'm proud of us. We did it.

We're growing and accomplishing dreams we hoped we could moving here. We're pretty darn happy and grateful we took the big leap of faith to move to a new state, so far from home. It couldn't be clearer how right this move was for us.

We're home, in Nashville for good.

PAINTING WITH WATERCOLOR

In a few weeks I'll teach my first watercolor class. If you're in Nashville, come paint some food, fruit and herbs with me and learn exclusive tips and techniques on how to paint with beautiful and delicate watercolor. Sign up for the class here.

If you're not in Nashville and want me to come to your city and teach a class, check out my workshop page here.

A little side note: I used a brush pen to create the "watercolor" lettering, doesn't it look great?! And yes, I will be teaching a class on brush lettering very soon.

How about you - are you teaching or attending any classes, if so what are they? Need a few tips on how to prep for your class? Read more here.
