here is my inspiration for our first day of February, 2010.  this is the only version i could find since this song hasn't been released as a single although it is my favorite on this album.  I was so happy to see them get some recognition last night at the Grammys!!  

here are the lyrics...

"We'll end up hand in hand
somewhere down on the sand
just me and you."

of course i love how they incorporate a little Van Morrison in there!  

take a listen...hope you like it!

thought i would share a painting i did for my sisters as a gift...i had some prints made up for both of them to hopefully frame and hang somewhere in their house.  i really enjoyed doing this as they inspire me...they are great mamas, great wives and they both work very hard!  

also...i am taking part in an experiment this amazing, lovely friend of mine posed today on her blog...all about hearts!!!

as everyone can tell from my blog name and the girls i paint...i, too, have a passion for hearts.

so today when i woke up and as i was sitting going pee (yes...i said it!)...i noticed a heart camouflaged in the tile of my jumped out at me plain as day even through my sleepy, barely awake eyes!  and in that brief moment of looking at that heart...i told myself i was going to have more patience this morning with my 4 kiddlies.  a little more tenderness in our morning routine...thanks to that sweet bathroom heart!!  go see Chrissy's post and join in on the experiment!!

  6. this morning I went to mail box and found your little package and well I never get little packages..I just held it .not wanting the magic to go away..wanting to feel super duper special and I did...I came home held it in my hand ran to my bathroom and just looked at the cool envelope opened it and I cried...because you cared enough to do this for me ...Thank You ..I love the earings and my envelope and the letter and you made me feel thank you..and I love you too...
