Hope you all had a lovely long weekend.  Nick and I officially started making our house a home, which consumed far more time than we initially thought.  (I think this is usually the case)  We did, however, make time to grill a few burgers  and eat macaroni salad to make it feel a bit more like the Fourth. The progress:  no more  cranberry drapes and the kitchen is now asparagus green.

In other exciting news, Courtney Barnes has given me quite the write-up on her design infused blog, Style Court.  I’m honored to be featured on such a site, and I hope you will  all take a moment to peruse her blog.  It’s saturated with artful goodness, so much so, I think I’ll add her to my blogroll for a daily source of inspiration.

Happy Monday!

Just a fair warning…I may get wrapped up in life’s fun adventures, and neglect the world of technology for a spell.  In fact, I’ve been pondering the idea of turning off the computer for an entire week.  (though I’m  not quite ready to pull the plug just yet.)  As for “adventures,”  there are plenty.  I just haven’t the time for details at the moment…but soon, I’ll get you all up to  speed.

As for this past week…completely inspiring!  I’ve been working with some incredible artists in the area, and not only do I find their creative spirits refreshing, there is some reassurance in hearing their stories.  Turns out, I’m not half as crazy as I thought I was…or maybe we’re all nuts?

Have a lovely weekend!

I’m not sure I know of anyone that works quite as hard as my Dad. Most people who know him, wonder how he’s able to manage so much and still keep that smile on his face. He is compassionate beyond words, more generous than most, and an inspiration to all who meet him. I am truly lucky to call him Dad…and if ever someone deserved something truly special for Father’s Day…it’s him…check this out…

He finally bought the beast…(which has been affectionately named “Eagle One”)

(Click photos to enlarge them)

My Brosef was the first to ride…you can bet he’ll be making a two-wheel purchase as soon as he returns from a 3 month trip to Costa Rica…(I’m sure Uncle Richard won’t be far behind either…I mean Pam would make for a hot biker chick 🙂

Of course, any such purchase must first be approved by Lee Anne…

I’d say by the looks of that smile, it didn’t take much convincing.

Of course, now that they have been initiated into the Harley lifestyle…it won’t be hard to shop for them…On my way down to Florida, I found this little gem…

Dad liked it…can’t you tell? Now all they need are matching tattoos…(hehehehehe)

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to ride Eagle One…the rains came, and I had to return to the studio…but I had a most marvelous time hanging with the Fernandina gang.

Happy Father’s Day Dad…and please be careful on that thing….love you all mucho!
