A day at the beach. from gussy sews on Vimeo.

I have little conversations with myself kinda regularly now that revolve around “purpose” and what I have to share/say. It’s gotten a lot harder lately to define these two things, and sometimes it feels really confusing. Do you ever feel like that?
There’s endless joy in knowing whatever I accomplish in a day will be awesome. There are no real rules right now; I’m just focusing on Maggie. And really, what focusing on Maggie means is focusing on our family, reading a few books, going to the beach, cultivating community within Los Angeles and sharing what’s on my heart — all in between naps of course. It’s a little bit crazy but a whole lot of fun. Daily. And so it’s been an interesting transition, slowing down as a maker to more of a mama; one kiddo to two. It’s filled with challenges and rewards. And little tiny toddler kisses in between :)
Maxwell and I were at the beach last week (surprise, surprise) and I took some video of us down by the water. This is such a fun age, and I have loved all the stages of his 15 months of precious life.
I’ve watched and re-watched (and then re-watched again) this video and I feel very confident in knowing whatever my purpose is, whatever I have to share or say, it’s all from God. I’ll always have a purpose — you’ll always have one, too — it’s just about having the patience to see it the way it really is.
