Along with Trouvé, I have completed a huge collection of oil paintings this season – so much fun – such a fantastic creative outlet for me – THANK YOU all for your commissions, orders, & words of support. You guys are seriously the best.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and can find some time to rest, to enjoy, to relish the moment, to hug the people you love, and to remember the real reason we celebrate Christmas. This Christmas has been really special for our family. Christmas with kids is a whole new layer of precious. The questions they ask remind me of all the beauty and grace around us. They are so full of wonder, innocence, and excitement. All the small sorrow in life are softened in their little minds and replaced with joy and hope.
They are teaching me far more than I’m teaching them about the meaning of Christmas.
My favorite memories from this last week are Christmas shopping in the West End arts district with my little family. The girls were shopping for me and trying to be so sneaky about the whole affair with noisy whispers and not-so-hidden gestures. They are such givers – spending all the money in their shallow pockets to buy me some little things.
Christmas is so, so sweet.
