 Cool pumpkins and gourds are one of the best things about fall, don't you think?

The colors and textures are almost too mush for me to handle. I'm an artist.......... I get excited about these kinds of visual feasts. My art brain is exploding!

I'm so excited to have been able to buy a few of these beauties this year and I'm even more excited to capture them in watercolors. It's been a very very busy fall for me.  Lots of projects in the works, some of which I can't announce yet, but it's exciting stuff!

Art news is good, but the best news is for my little family. We have decided to try and adopt! I can't believe I am typing this right now. I have waited for so so so many years to get to this point. I mourned the loss of my fertility and waited and waited for the time when adoption felt right.  It feels right now. Of that we are sure. So fasten your seat belts, it's going to be an amazing ride!

We have many big decisions to make and mountains of paperwork to tackle, but we feel so good about this choice. We've felt the Lord's hand guiding us to adoption and in these choices we are making. We believe in miracles!


  1. That's a huge decision! Congratulations to you and your family.

    1. Thank you! It feels crazy, almost like a dream that we are doing this, but we're excited!
