So…yesterday was a milestone in that it was Vernon’s first birthday post-earth. Also, he would have been 50, another major milestone. But we’ve done so much celebrate his memory over the past months, I didn’t want to make a big deal out of this. He was never big on his birthday, really. But I didn’t want to ignore the date. So I did something for myself that Vernon would have been proud of. I launched a new blog for my paintings of inspiring historical women. Please join me over there if you are so inclined. (More to come!) For me, this project represents how I feel about moving into the future as a single mother/woman—while hoping to encourage my sharp daughter’s independent thinking.
We also spent the evening at home making art together. Justine skipped out early, but I can show the ones Maki and I made here.
Of course, we had chocolate ice cream as well.
