celebrating spring

We went this weekend to do some work on the roof and when Sean walked into the workroom (not used so much in the winter!) we found a little bird making a home in his tool belt! He had to do some extra walking up and down the ladder but it was so worth it! Isn’t she sweet! We are trying to stay out of her way but if all goes well I’ll get some pictures of the eggs (they are SO small) and crossing fingers of the little chicks when they arrive!


and today we went out to Ares Grandmas for an egg hunt and an amazing meal with 30 friends and family! This year Grandma did a switch now that all the kids were big enough and the KIDS hid the eggs and the ADULTS had to find them. We had to find all the eggs before we could eat and I’ll tell you what I’ve never seen so many adults take egg hunting so seriously. We found 99 out of 104 eggs, we didn’t find them all because the kids thought up the cool idea of BURYING some of the eggs (which is so cheating ;) ) and so we didn’t get all the buried eggs.


We did get some help after the first 80+ eggs from the kids, they were getting hungry too.dsc_4754-editdsc_4761-editdsc_4776-edit

oh my goodness also the food was amazing, the roasted veggies alone! Sean and I discovered the most amazing cheese shoppe The Boulevard Market and brought two kinds of in house made cheese and some chocolate cheese, it was fabulous.

Paul is a wonderful photographer himself and he was kind enough to take my camera and take a couple frames of Sean and I. Thanks Paul


On the way home! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Happy Spring.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
