Studio Sneak Peek!

Summer is just flying by!
I have been savoring the moments 

Play date ......

Quiet moments with family......

Vacation Bible School
oh how I wish this hadnt been impossible for Lil G
But we were showered with love
and everyone knew her name
and lots of hugs and happy dancing......
focusing on the good.

Music in the park on Thursday evenings.
If you really know Grace this is her 
over the top squeal for joy.
Its the best of all the photos I took
camera strap and all.......

Gender reveal shower for the first grand baby of friends-
this next generation.
Its a GIRL!!!
My birthday......

(annoying big brothers!)

 Deep sea fishing trips for big brothers-
and gifts for little sisters.
(the guy driving the boat felt like she needed a 
"blue hat" of her very own)

Last but not least,
Artwork for daughter
A poem we both love
by e. e.Cummings.
the background didnt turn out quite the way I envisioned.
but she loved it
and thats what matters.
I wrote the poem in my own script.
I felt it would be more personal that way
I hope that when she sees it,
it will remind her of me,
of the beautiful times we have shared
and the future moments we have to look forward to
even though many miles will separate us
I carry her in my heart.....

 “I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)

I am never without it (anywhere I go you go,my dear; 

and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)

I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)

I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant

 and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root

 and the bud of the bud 

and the sky of the sky 

of a tree called life; 

which grows

higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”
