Thursday Quiet

One of my favorite things is coming home to see Ben after a long work day. He's an awesome cook and makes great mixed drinks - the perfect cocktail for stress relief. But two nights a week, when Ben is working late nights at the clinic, I get about five glorious hours all to myself. It usually goes something like the photos above: straightening the living room and kitchen; taking some outfit photos of myself (a fail today, clearly!); immersing myself in delicious, hot peach tea; and painting my nails. It's a pink-filled, primetime TV catch-up, lady night that I love. More than anything, I have the entire couch to stretch out on and no one yells at me for using my iPad, Macbook, Instagram, and watching TV all at once! 

As you can see from the silly illustrated photos above, I was also playing with my iPad as a tablet tonight to illustrate my photos on Photoshop. I know I've mentioned this before, but Air Display is an app on the iPad that lets you connect it as a display to the computer. I'd highly recommend it if you'd like to make your iPad a completely functional artists tool. I've got some work to do on my stylus skills, but you get the idea. 

If you haven't caught up with the ladies on social media lately, come join us at these locations:
