I had a wonderful piece of news yesterday. I learned that my sister is coming HOME!
Home to California, that is....We are natives of this beautiful state & my sister moved up to Washington State for the past 3 years. I think 3 winters in Washington made her realize it was not for her. She will be back in 2 weeks...2 weeks from today! I will NEVER let her leave again! I am beside myself with joy, joy & more joy!
I put a pic up this morning of her sweet little self from 19__.....hmmmm....never mind when it was taken. She's still just as adorable as ever! I love you my dear sister & I am so excited for your return!
One more thing...I'm almost done painting!!!! That makes me very happy too!
Happy Sunday!

This picture is adorable--- I love these old photos from years ago.

Glad that you will have family close to home. Your sunset photos are lovely, gorgeous colors and very calming to look at.

I am wondering what the song is that you have on your blog. I love it, is it Norah Jones?

Good luck with your painting job!

You are the best sister! Thank you.

how nice for both of you! i can handle cold any day, but the lack of sun in seattle was enough to make me crazy!

look forward to new art, now that the painting is nearly done! :)
