Early Valentine from my honey

I came home to the most beautiful surprise: My sweet husband had MADE me a valentine card and had it set up on the dining table along with 6 shiny pink heart balloons, and a dozen red roses. I am spoiled beyond belief.

My dear husband Collin,
You are the light of my life. You are the man I have waited for and looked for my whole life. I am the luckiest woman alive to have a man like you. I must have made someone upstairs pretty happy to end up with you my darling. Thank you for being there for me no matter what. You make every day like Christmas. I will spend the rest of my days trying to become the person you already see me as.
I love you with all of my heart.
Now & forever
Your wife Dawn

Late night photo adventure

Friday was a beautiful day in Seattle and Issaquah. It was also Go Red for Women day to help raise awareness about women's heart disease. Several Seattle land,arks were lit up red. That in combination with the clear skies and warmer temperatures inspired me to want to go take pictures in Seattle after sunset. I proposed the idea to Collin and he was game. Off we went....after the photo taking fun we stopped at Fado Irish pub for a beer and chit chat. Good times...

Journal pages

I finally have the nerve to share with you a couple of my journal pages. I have kept a diary/journal off and on for most of my life. I recently began mixing my love of sketchbooks and doodling with journaling creating my own type of art journaling. It was easy for me to look at everyone elses wonderful art journals but challenging to begin one of my own and find my own art journaling style. I am getting more comfortable with pages that start with a colored background-my sketchbooks are all a lovely, blank white page to begin with.. :)

Anyway, here are a couple pages for your consideration...(gulp)...
