Today's post is entitled
'Their Favorite Park'

As a parent I know the restorative importance of a good park.
One that they love to explore and play. One that is relaxing enough that I can regroup my heart and mind to survive the rest of the day...I mean enjoy the rest of the day with my beloved offspring.
He he.

TOMORROW will not only be my last day for this September's 30 in 30 challenge but it will also be the last time I post my latest creations on THIS blogsite.

To the Love of my life

September 28.
Twelve years ago today I married a tall, dark & handsome man I had come to love & respect. Little did I realize how much deeper our love would grow through the years ahead. 12 down, 60+ more to go, Babe-Love

So for today, i painted this for you babe. A view from our La Luz hike (you know that 8 mile hike where i cried half way through and couldn't even speak the last quarter - good times) together to say this.
Even in the toughest 'climbs' so far, I have been glad to be side by side with you. It hasn't always been easy but what breathtaking views there have been. Whatever is around the next bend, I'm so thankful we get to go thru this adventure of life together. There's no one else I'd rather cry or laugh or laugh so hard I cry with thru the next 70 years with.
I love you.
I do.
I will.

Peace out

"When peace, like a river, attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot,
Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul."
- Horatio G. Spafford, 1873

Day 26: a little fun

So here i am 26 days down and only 4 to go. 
Today I needed a little break. So here's a daily double. One light hearted but fun painting from a  Dr. Seuss quote with a 'so true' message.
And the second is just something I had to do. For my own sanity. Too many detailed or semi-realistic paintings in a row for this granola girl. So, i let myself get messy and have fun with no plan. Won't win any awards with this but it was fun to paint.
Sometimes we all need a break from what's expected to just sit back and enjoy ourselves.
So don't forget to be a little silly and enjoy yourself today.
