My friend Angela and I were talking about the busyness of parent life. As she was talking, she had the epiphany that we spend most our day saying NO to ourselves: no sleeping in, no time for a run, no time to shower, no time to read a novel… but when it comes to snacks and treats its an easy way we can say YES. It may not be the healthiest but we embrace these small moments where we can allow ourselves pleasure.
So last week the hubbahubba and I relished our two hours before bed, when baby was asleep, and we baked.
The hubbahubba was looking through my files and came across this custom illustrationfrom 2014 and he exclaimed “Hey, I’ve never seen this!” I forgot to share it soI am sharing it now ^_^ This couple wereengaged under a very unique treeand they wanted me to capture it. As with all commissions, I felt honored to work on something so meaningful.

Reading about the repeated violence makes it harder to see beauty through the horrible headlines. We must stop hurting the planet, the animals and each other. I have hope that we can arrive at a place where we see our time here as precious and treat the world and those around us with respect. I believe we can change. Because I believe we have a lot of love. If we can free ourselves to share that love – to release it into the world without reservation – perhaps we can arrive there soon.
