This photo was taken in Arizona and is of me (on the left, for those of you who are new or don’t yet know my face, and no, I’m not really very old at all, only 45 — though I realize it’s old for some of you — it’s just all that gray that makes you think so, but I refuse to start the “dying merry-go-round” because I know I would suck at keeping it up!) and Jeanne, a friend I’ve traveled to Artfest with many times (we met there in 2003). We were both so surprised to see each other at Art Unraveled… it’s such a small circle!

Truly, these mixed media art events (such as Artfest, Art & Soul, The Art Nest and Art Unraveled) have changed my life. I’ve met so many wonderful women. They “get” me. I “get” them. I’m very blessed!!

Wes starts school tomorrow and we are about to watch a movie at 4:00 in the afternoon! A back-to-school treat for all of us.
