wild love


i created this illustration almost exactly two years ago in 2010. they were the first giraffes to appear in my work. about a year after i had the pleasure of visiting my friend in africa. it was truly a dream trip… i went on safari, visited an elephant orphanage and a giraffe sanctuary. one of my favorite moments was at the sanctuary… i climbed up their observation tower that put me at eye-level with the giraffes. when i got to the top they handed me some food. before i knew it there was a beautiful, soft, and somewhat pushy giraffe eating out of my hands!

from that point forward, my work has been full of giraffes… and i’m sure it will remain that way. ^_^

what dreams may come


in my early twenties i didn’t know what i wanted to do or where i wanted to go with my life. i tried on careers like dresses, seeing which one fit right. one of the times i remember quite clearly was when i decided to become a nurse – it was less school than becoming a doctor and i could help people. i researched what i would need to do and felt incredibly excited when i presented it to the hubbahubba. he was, as always, incredibly supportive, but gently asked me if my squeamish-ness around blood might negatively effect my wonderful new career path.

and that was my short-lived nursing career.

the world is amazing and beautiful, there are so many paths and options… i feel like everyday is brimming with potential. embarking on these explorations together (whether they are successful or not) makes everything enjoyable.

these past ten years have been full of so much magic, and i simply cannot wait to see what lies ahead, with him.

p.s. thank you to everyone for the sweet messages and joining me in this celebration of our love. ^_^ i’ll be taking a few days off and back to my regular stealth mode posting next week ^_^
