Ten Years

10 years ago today I woke up to a thunderstorm and decided to roll over and go back to sleep rather than face my mom.

10 years ago today it rained and the sun came out and it was a beautiful if not a bit humid day.

10 years ago today Webby and I went to the flower shop and picked up a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

10 years ago today we had lunch and went home to get ready for the evening.

10 years ago today we went our separate ways to get cleaned up and dressed so we could meet up later for pictures.

10 years ago today we had our pictures taken in a beautiful garden.

10 years ago today we gathered and mingled in the garden with close friends and family.

10 years ago today we stood in front of our bishop and I married my best friend as the sun went down.

We've been through so much in the last 10 years. I love you more today then I ever knew that I could love someone. I know that we have enjoy much love and happiness as well and difficulties and fears. And through it all I know that so long as I am by your side everything will work out.

I love you Webby. Happy Anniversary!

You Know What They Say...

If you do something bad as a business, people have a tendency to tell at least 10 people about it. But if you do something good they might not say anything at all. Well, I think this goes beyond the 10.

So I guess United breaks guitars. And here I am telling you about it.
True story!

I wanted to post these pictures last week. However, a trip to the ER to rehydrate the artist of said paintings kind of sent me onto a tailspin. She's fine, so don't worry...although I did for a little bit. She's back to her old self.

Sweetie Heart received acrylic paints, paint brushes and canvas boards for her birthday. Now this is pretty big for me. I don't like messes and painting is messy. And it takes time. And often I just don't have the patience. I'm doing my best to be better, it's hard some days.

About a week after she got her stuff I said yes! And here is what she created.

This first one was sketched on the canvas first and then painted.

These others were created on the canvases. Amazing aren't they? She really does have a talent!! She's already given 2 of them away.

And, of course, a picture of the artist posing with one of her paintings. She's going to be famous one day. She told me so herself!

Those canvases aren't cheap so feel free to send her more. She might even send you a painting as a thank you!

And here's a little comic relief. I wonder if Sweet Girl learned to smoke a pipe from her Great Uncle Jon??
