    the past few days have been very exciting and it has left me feeling thankful. every day is not easy and things are far from perfect, but when i really stop to think about it, i realize how very blessed i am. here's a few things that have been making me happy...

     ...walking up and seeing my art in a showroom at the atlanta gift market

    i've been doing this for 3 years now and it just never gets old!...

    ...meeting people that i've only known on facebook and really connecting...

    ...voicemail messages from my little guy... new lime green espresso machine. if i wasn't over-caffeinated before, i am now!... meals. they don't happen every day, but i love when they do...

    ...dreaming of new products to put my art on...

    ...uninterrupted meals with old friends...

    ...staying at barnes & noble till they close...
