(first official commissioned painting....Merry Christmas of my dear friends mamas!)

in sticking with my post from Monday Music Inspiration is this song. i feel my husband loves me in this way and i KNOW it is rare and it is a GIFT. As for Alanis, i have always liked her and respected her creative ability at writing such real and raw lyrics. She is a talent... "What I resist, persists, and speaks louder than I know. What I resist, you love, no matter how low or high i go." Lyrics can be found here. Hope you all take a listen and enjoy!!
here is my youngest, Sydnie with Santa. She asked for a snow globe and a "real" rose. Really?????? Can I just push the pause button now and she can't get any older or wiser!!!! ; ) I am thoroughly enjoying this season with her...knowing she is my baby and is growing up so fast!! She's hilarious!!!

loves to you all!!! xxooxxooxxoo
