Some moments in life seem like they are a gift straight from heaven. You know, those magical times when everything around you stops and you are living in a moment that will be forever imprinted in your memory.
experienced one of these moments on Sunday evening. The moon was full
around 9 pm and my mom and Charlie and I were running in her backyard
trying to catch fireflies! It was completely spontaneous and fun! It was
incredible to watch my two year old son get so excited about these
little tiny bugs that light up! His eyes were as bright as the moon as
he studied God's little, tiny creature. It crawled up his little arm and
as I watched him, I realized that these are the moments that are just a
little bit sweeter. These are the moments that make every problem in
the world go away. These are the moments that make me love being a mommy. These are the moments that I thank God for every day.
hope that after reading this, you will find some of those sweet moments
in life. They probably come more often than I realize. I just have to
watch out for them and expect them more often!
Feel free to comment about any of your special moments that are imprinted in your memory.

A Slice of Life
Hi to all of our readers and viewers! I must apologize for not posting sooner but life has become a little crazy! I am sure all of you know about that. Sometimes life really gets in the way of other things we would like to do, doesn't it? Just to catch everyone up on our little lives here I will give you the very short story of what has been keeping us so busy.

Most recently, I am honored to showcase three watercolor paintings in my very first art show! This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the "Dollhouses of the Past" Exhibit at the Historical Society of Ocean Grove Musesum. What is so special about this exhibit is what the chairwoman is doing with these little dollhouses. They are each being turned into multi-level Artist Galleries featuring original 'miniature' artwork. Each artist that submits 3-4 pieces of work will have their own 'gallery' named after them!
These minis are only 2"x 2" square and were so much fun to make. The choice of medium we had was watercolor, acrylic, pen and ink or sculpture. I chose watercolor as this is a fairly new and challenging medium to me. I am an artist at heart who specializes in graphic design but wanted to spread my wings and see what I could come up with. I have taken a few watercolor classes with some well accomplished artists and have dabbled in it on my own. I hope you enjoy these three mini creations!
