Wanted to share a few things from the magic courtyard! Hope you are soaking in some rays of sunshine and listening to a songbird 🙂

The next two weeks in our Year of the Spark class we are drawing inspiration from nature.
It’s been glorious already 🙂
Wishing you quiet time outdoors to savor the details 🙂
With lots of love,

Quite simply, we all have so very much to smile over. Dear pals, beautiful sky’s, fur people, painting, color, laughter, fresh air, singing out loud, swings, water, dancing, chocolate, cooking, harmonizing, playing outdoors, learning, funny stuff….and that is just the tip of the iceberg that is a list of great things to be thankful for!
oh, and I love you!!
make stuff and enjoy as much as possible!!
XOXOOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOOXXOX
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU AND YOURS!!

The Jacksonville Arboretum Paint Out

What a wonderful experience! To be outside in a beautiful place, with fun and talented people and paint to raise awareness for a fantastic cause! The Jacksonville Arboretum is a piece of heaven! You will find streams, trails, marshes, wildlife, a pond and so much more. We saw a huge majestic and undaunted Owl, just allowing painters to paint him, an otter with big whiskers, fish, tons of birds, wild flowers and more. One of my favorite parts was all the small signs with the information about the different types of trees and vegetation. I love learning this! If you are a nature loves its definitely worth a trip!
Mindy Hawkins and her husband Lad have such enthusiasm and love for nature that overflows into all they do. They have rounded up the most amazing team of friends and volunteers that made our time there a pleasure. A special thanks to Kitty our hostess with the mostest. XOXOXOX
