Those Silly Lips

So this is one of those things only a mother could love...but ever since William was a tiny newborn, he would do this cute little thing when he slept, where his lips get all sloppy and loose and pooched out and asymmetrical!  And I loved it!  He doesn't do it anymore, but it was seriously adorable!  Those Silly Lips!!!!

William at One Years Old


Here's our little sweetie at exactly 1 years old, doing his little guy thing, walking around furniture and being happy and content travelling around France with his Papa and Mama!  I really miss my little baby sometimes!!!

Soul Sisters Retreat Fall 2013

This was an awesome experience.  After being so incredibly sick in France during the summer of 2013, I was at a pretty low point early last fall.  I was exhausted and dealing with the mystery of my early onset arthritis...for some reason I felt that I HAD to go to this conference.  I had no idea why.  But looking back now a year later it makes perfect sense.  It was kinda like a reset button, to turn me around and get me started going back in the right direction.  I started really being more courageous with my art business, and I started doing some DEEP exploration of my spirituality.  I also started to really work on my eating habits, getting my eating as clean as possible.  When physical healing came to me later that winter, I embraced physical activity with a vengeance and now I workout almost every, going on hour long walks around my neighborhood, or going to NIA dance classes or Yoga.  I am learning to meditate. I get massages!  I am also learning about a self-massage method called, "MELT"...in short I am really taking care of myself like the precious vessel of light that I was created to be...I was meant to go to that conference.  God really saw that I desperately needed help to get back to where I needed to be, to who I used to be.  I needed a gentle reminder!

Belle from Beauty and the Beast Painting

Here's our lovely heroine before her encounter with the beast. Her spirit and purity of heart shining through so clearly. She's ready for anything and even though she will be going through that dark valley of the soul she will come through it stronger and purified even more by the experience. Original Mixed Media 8x10 painting on canvas.

A Few Days with Friends

This was a very fun little interlude for William, as my husband's friend has 4 kids (she's pregnant now with her 5th!)  So William had lots of playmates...

...and his favorite playmate was Lena, a year older than him.  They had so much fun together and it was so adorable to watch the two of them together!

Here's my sweet little man still battling the pinkeye, poor little lamb!

Some more photos of the 2 famous friends...

So cute!  I hope they meet again someday!!!
