Day 181

I can very well do without God both in my life and in my painting, but I cannot, suffering as I am, do without something which is greater than I am, which is my life, the power to create. – Vincent van Gogh

Day 180

Drum away the storm. I love them. I love how I wake with wonder over what we will learn together. I love how each is different. Yet when a storm blows in they each run and grab a drum and together we drum the storm away. The closer the storm, the harder and faster they […]

Day 172 — Co-Sleeping

There is nothing else like cuddling your own baby. Moments like these I wish the world would stop spinning so I could enjoy it longer. They grow up so fast. For now though, my baby is a baby. She still sleeps in our room and many nights in our bed. We practice safe co-sleeping. I […]
