It used to be that I would go hang out in a restaurant or coffee shop, sketchbook in hand, at least once, if not two or three times a week. In fact, most of this blog's early content consisted of little else.
Becoming a mother changed that. In the time since the babies have been born, I'm hardly ever alone...and even less, out sketching. Yesterday was a particularly exhausting day around our house, prompting Edgar to ask if I wanted to have a 'Girl Night Out' while he had a 'Boys Night In'. I have the freedom to do this most any night, but just the suggestion was a wonderful gesture. So, just like old times, last night I went on a date with my sketchbook, a goodie-filled magazine and my old friend, Panera Bread.
