Out to Sea

We headed out to sea yesterday for a little day cruise on the SS Lane Victory. It was a beautifully foggy day which seemed to add to the historic character of the old cargo ship's history.

We loved the ocean air,

but the best part was spending time together!

Although, David did get a little crazy through the day

See what I mean?

No worries, I love this guy Instead, I just keep my cool and kept on sailing!

oh wait, maybe we all got a little crazy at sea, but you weren't suppose to know that (lol)

Beverly you are a wonderful example of what being a mother is about. I admire your great talent for always being so full of love and concern for so many, even for the little animals such as Ruby and Bruiser who always have someone to stick up for them when they make mistakes.

la Famiglia

It was a family weekend!

We went and ate at one of our family favorites, Angelo's and Vinci's after a long Saturday of running around.

John my brother and David my husband are simply the best.

There is so much to look at while you eat. If you have not been there than it's a must do if you're in old town Fullerton.

Earlier in the day we also celebrated Kylee's 3rd Birthday. She is David's 2nd cousin's daughter. She is a cutie and loves David so much that she had him by the hand the minute he got there.

By the way, Fall starts tomorrow!! I'm very ready for some cooler weather, how about you?

Artistic Habits

This is the look of focus with perhaps a little inspiration. David my love, watch out because the house is going to transform once again into my studio space. I'm sure you will be very sad as I know you just worked so hard on it, but don't worry I'm committed this time to...

...keeping the pencils, charcoal stick, sharpeners, erasers, X-Acto knifes, pallets, canvases, conté sticks, brushes, toxic oil paints (including the ones with lead), non-toxic paint, ink, notebooks, pencil boxes, art bags and paper in a designated area and I will also keep the windows open for proper ventilation so we can continue to have intelligent conversations.

I'm loving...

I'm loving this guy! I'm also loving and thanking Rachel for giving him such a great hair cut. Thank you!!

I'm loving that David and I just finished talking in church! To find out what we spoke about click here .

I've also been loving some of these lately (random, I know). Probably because I've been reading more about this.

Of course, I'm always loving her

I will not forget 9/11
Permanently etched in my mind is that morning of sadness when the NY cityscape changed forever and so many innocent lives were lost.
Permanently etched in my mind is the fact that it was intentional.
Permanently etched in my mind is the affect it will always have on us.
Permanently etched in my mind is the pain that continues for the families and friends who lost loved ones.
Permanently etched in my mind is how brave we are as Americans
Above I have placed the same image I posted last September 11th with a link to that post as this image still continues to say so much.

Back to School

The end of our summer break and back to school

Before our long summer break ended we hit a few Art Festivals,

enjoyed some beautiful sunsets,

and played in the sand
