So I know its a couple days late, but I am so grateful for the women in my life! I think there is just not much you can say that has not already been said. But what would you do without your mother? Without that warm hug when you feel lousy, without her words that always were true (even if they were hard to hear), for the warm cookies on late nights, for the time she pulled you out of high school to have a date with just the two of you. Mothers are so amazing, do-it-all women who somehow manage to cram into our tiny brains that we are loved, confident, talented children all while doing the laundry and helping us with school projects, making dinner. What a wonderful day to remember why you're grateful!
On Sunday we got to spend the holiday with two women that I really admire. Derin & Kara. They are huge examples to me of intelligent confident women. To celebrate them, Jon created and made these beautiful chocolates. Its a dollup of white chocolate with black berries, raspberries, yellow raspberries, and blue berries drizzled in a rich milk chocolate. And yes, they were as good as they look.
Later in the evening I spent some time with my darling niece, drawing & coloring. She likes it when I draw & she colors, but I love her little art. She's so talented.
It was a perfect time to practice some drawing though, Isabel loves fairies.
