The artist in me

I have finally gotten back to my painting! It feels so good and I am anxious to crank out all of the ideas I have in my head. I have set up a studio in our basement and am painting as much as I can while Leila sleeps. Eventually I will set up a shop on and plan on showcasing my work at my friend's store, Evangeline, in downtown Frederick...visit: More to come!

Merry Christmas

We had so much fun decorating our Christmas tree this year! TJ went out and cut it down while Leila and I stayed warm inside. We hung the photos from our wedding centerpieces as ornaments and I made a homemade star for the topper! Merry Christmas

Leila Smiles!

In the last few weeks Leila has learned to smile, coo, much more...its simply the best. She now knows our voices and will turn her head in search of us. She loves to be tickled and stares at us in wonder when we make funny faces, she's probably thinking who are these crazy people who can't stop smiling at me? Little does she know she is stuck with us. There have been moments lately where I just sit back and look at what we have created...I try to take it all in, soak it up...because I know one day she will be all grown up and all I will be able to say is "remember when..."
