Monday, Feb 27th - chocolate release

After every art show that I have at Maya Essence I always have to go next door to Julius Meinl and treat myself to my favorite chocolate mousse cake.

I was inside a World Market and found these little packets of yumminess...

After using the bathroom this morning this is what I came back to room to...

Friday, Feb 24th - burst of color

It's been a dreary day, within me and outside around me. Vince and I went out for dinner and I this is what greeted me at the table. The bright color definitely cheered me up a bit.

The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

Thursday, Feb 23rd - getting ready for change

So I'm in the process of moving out of the house that Becca and I lived in for almost 4 yrs. It's a bittersweet parting, but something that needed to be. As I'm letting Simon out during one of the last times here, I look across the street and see this stunning view of different shades of pink and blue. I guess this is a sign that change can be good, for both me and Becca.

Wednesday, Feb 22nd - dia de los tacos

I was running around the place, dropping off artwork from the previous art show and ones from many moons past, when I came across a van that looked like it sold tacos and burritos. Well, that's what it looked like on the side of the van, but the back of the van is what caught my attention. I must say, I do absolutely LOVE THIS!!! It has definitely brought some inspiration to some future projects :)

Tuesday, Feb 21st - Mom's favorites

As I was in the process of going through more old memories, I found this little trinket that happened to be a favorite of my Mom's.
