And we're back!

Yesterday was such a great day - my dear husband who was out of town working for 5 weeks (yes, FIVE) was happy to spend the day with our kiddo so I could go to a Paint Something Workshop (PSW) with Jenni Horne. Jenni is a local artist who lives a bit south of Atlanta. She has a wonderfully vibrant and fun style of painting that I just love and she's also a fellow art teacher. She just started teaching painting workshops for adults in her home studio and I was super excited to go. I'm not a painter but I keep on wanting to be, so I keep on trying now and then and I can say this is the happiest I've ever been with my results! LOVE love love it! Of course now all I want to do it sit around and PAINT! Teehee...I love how a new experience with fun people can energize you like that. Tiffin sat next to me and I was thrilled that she is just as nice in person as she seems like she would be on her lovely blog. If you're looking for a fun way to spend a Saturday, Jenni said she's planning on doing these workshops on a regular basis since the response has been so positive, keep an eye on her blog or like her on fb for the details. She even made lunch and her sweet husband made us all the most delicious HOMEMADE ice cream. Home made ice cream, straight from the churn...can you say GOOD DAY?! ;-) I love supporting local artists and this was such a fun way to do it!

Life around these parts is getting back to normal after Daddy's loooooong business trips and then a short but fun family trip/vacation to Denver. I've been busy sewing and organizing and I'll be back this week to catch you up! Hope everyone's summer has been going well!
