In the blink of an eye....


They grow.  And you grow.   You both change and you learn and you open your heart to possibility every morning.  Whether you become a parent in your 20's or in your 40's you learn to adapt and grow from the inside out until you find that time has gone by...and here she is at 2 and then 13 in the blink of an eye.
I've been unexpectedly away from blogging (and painting) with my parents' visit and my first born's big birthday.  We've had a few really great days and I'm going to keep it going for a few more.  I'll be back to writing, answering emails and convos and catching up on lots of great blog posts by some of you by the week's end.  See you soon....

What a sweet baby girl and a lovely young lady. It's so true the time goes by way too fast. I've been working on a method for slowing time down...still working :)
Have a great visit and celebration!
