GABE | running, running, running… from Music Concert (playing recorder), to Piano Recital, Track Day, Jump Rope for Heart & the Art Fair. Whew. My most favorite thing from Gabe for the month was seeing his winning drawing at the Art Fair I was SO proud and had a happy heart when I saw this.

HOME PROJECT | Back to painting doors.  We painted all of our main floors doors white a couple months ago… well this month was our UPstairs doors.  Sigh.  It is alot of work.  My hubbie said he doesn’t want to see paint for quite away.  (When is it the right time to him about all of the doors downstairs?  Do I wait a few months?)  HAHA!!

WORKING ON | June’s BYOC – Drift Away  Coming Soon June 6th!!
“Think soft watercolors and sorbet ice cream.”
