Life [ Update ]

Saturday, September 3, 2011

well, this past week has been a doozy.  i'm not even sure where to begin...
irene came. and went. and left us with a LOT to clean up, and 5 days without power. loads of fun.

as if that wasn't enough, i also became a mommy to the most beautiful little girl, Lena Irene :)

i have been wanting a dog for soo long. i even moved off campus last year, just in the hopes to get a pup.  but the timing was never right.  finally, with school behind us, mark working at a very dog-friendly organic farm, and me staying home more often to paint, we were ready to become parents :)

i had a mild obsession with, and after searching for weeks for the perfect dog, we found her... 

i am such the proud mama, and i really think she might be the smartest pup ever.  in just a week she is already housebroken, BRILLIANT i tell ya'!

she's trouble, rolled into the cutest little package.  it's so hard to get mad at her... even when she is killing my power cord to my brand new computer, or eating the bottom of our sofa, or relentlessly crying the ENTIRE night, or...  believe me, i could go on...

but it really doesn't matter.  because she is ours, and she's perfect :)

our first day, picking her up at the rescue.

 her first trip to our beach :)

so needless to say between nearly a week of no power, and the newest addition to our family, i have gotten very little painting done.  i will now be launching our Etsy September 8th, instead of the original date of September 1st.  it just wasn't going to happen... but i'm finally getting back on track, appreciating every free moment and pup nap time, and i'm more than ever excited to share with you my work.

we are also now on facebook! i hope you will "like" me!
