I have for a long time now loved paper. For my birthday a few years back, I dragged Andy to the papersource in Chicago. This weekend we slipped away from the holiday festivities for a little one on one date in Ann Arbor. On my list was this place. So glad I stopped… I was once again inspired by the texture, smell and slightly overwhelmed by all the beautiful prints of the paper. I know there were many opportunities at art school to learn this craft but somehow I missed them all. Now I struggle along in my novice-ness. But the best part is they offer workshops, so it is before Christmas but I have officially started the birthday list!

birthdays, books, I’m in love.
I am a wife, mother, friend, artist, swimmer, traveler, cook, adventurer and follower of Christ. This is where I share the best moments in my day – the kind you know would be a crime to keep to yourself. I write like I talk, not too fancy but from the heart. View all posts by Kate

- Going to see Incredibles 2 for Father’s Day... these folks were ahead of us, feeling like our family is underdressed 😳!Sometimes you just need to take the matter into your own hands... I’ve been wanting to paint a cornhole set for some time. I was giddy when I saw this class offered at my local Home Depot. Tonight I built my own boards... now to choose a design. Let the lawn games begin!The early bird gets the shmear. The little one wanted to get up early and be one of the first fifty people at a new Einstein’s by our house. The older child chose to sleep in. I’m thinking natural consequences may come into play at some point...Behind the smiles there were a few tears... We loved our neighbors on Thornhill; these girls and their mamas! They were such an answer to prayer when we moved here. We have been renting in Colorado for the last two years and the owner wanted to move back in. 😓Thankfully we were able to find a new home to purchase nearby and make it a bit more of our own. Trusting the bond that was formed and biker gang will never be broken!Last day of school!!! So proud of my gold metal academic girls, they rocked their classes with perfect scores.We woke up early this morning to watch the royal wedding. This afternoon we toasted the new couple with high tea and fascinators!
