Romance Is In the Air!

Many of you know our recent trip to Wisconsin was canceled because Richard broke his leg and needed surgery. We were traveling there to attend the wedding of our good friends, Scott and Kelly. They got engaged last October, at the top of Cadillac Mountain, while visiting us here in Maine.

On that day, I was able to take a picture of them just moments after Scott proposed. A few weeks ago, I printed a copy of that picture and, using it as a guide, painted a large picture on canvas with acrylics for their wedding present. Max (age 8) is the most visually artistic in the family and he helped me with the rocks. I posted pictures of what we did HERE. I think you’ll agree…the rocks are the best part! 😉

This week’s Maxism:

“When I grow up, I’m going to be a brain surge.”

Hugs to all!
