For the past two days I have been non-stop busy with making appointments, spring cleaning, shopping, putting together all my 'sketch candy' packages, mailing all of them, reading my course books for recertification classes (for work) & finally...signing my children up for all the summer activities. Phew. Who ever said holidays were for relaxation was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LYING !

When I finally got a chance to sit down today, I opened up an e-mail from my friend Lori and this is what was enclosed.

A little background first.
My cyber boss- BFF- neighbor- & long lost at birth "twin-sister" Roberta, (aka - The Prairie Fairy) took part in an art installation project (which she was hand selected for because she is so amazingly, creatively talented) at our local library & these pictures are from the night of the grand opening/unveiling of her project. She had busted her butt since January to get this project done & all of her local 'fairies' were there to cheer her on.
Yup this was her project. A beautiful nursery rhyme mural with lots of textures, depths and designs.
Roberta  has a slideshow of her project and it can be seen at her blog HERE!
I have never been more proud of her !

(L-R- Debs, me, Lori, Roberta, Kelly, Trisha)

Now for the pictures I got from Lori, also from that night.
This is my innocence......my baby......Merik.
A little over a year old.
Sometimes we get caught up in the hustle & bustle we forget the sweetness right in front of us!

Me & Merik in front of Robertas masterpiece! Both lookin so happy .........

.......then not so happy as I smother my son with kisses and squishes! LOL

I hope you take some time today or tomorrow to give the ones you love some kisses & squishes, whether they like it not! haha


PS- I just got a call from my g-friend- she gave birth to a  baby girl at 9 am this morning (April 4)! Mom and babe are doing well!
More innocence!


Have a great day!
