Photos of the Week

In honor of Fall, I went digging through my archives looking for my favorite leaf photos! Some I've posted in years past from my fall adventures and crafts. I even found some that never got posted. Such a shame, right?!  I decided it's time to post them! Happy Fall!

Lemons and Blossoms

 Once in a while, my baby will take a decent nap and then I get some painting time in! 


I loved painting watercolor lemons with blossoms last year so much that I decided to add to the collection.  Here are two more lemon paintings that I just listed in my shop!

Baby Land

Greetings from baby-land!


I'm late in sharing this news here, but we adopted a baby girl 7 weeks ago! 

It was a fast-paced, unexpected, stressful, emotional and miraculous experience.  After two years of trying to adopt, my husband and I had resigned ourselves to the fact that it might never happen and we were beginning to be ok with that.  We had done everything possible that we could do and it was in the Lord's hands.  Turns out, He had plans for us after all! We love our baby girl with all our hearts and we love her brave birth mama too.  We are truly grateful for this miracle in our lives.
