One apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

Our youngest daughter and her little family have moved from Arizona to California for  her husband’s work.  Both of them have moved far from family and friends and have lost their long standing friendships and relations because of the move.  It had been difficult to hear the sadness and longing in her voice as I talked with her on the phone.  I wanted to help but had no idea what to do…and I live a long way away from her and can’t be there for a hug and a cup of coffee while watching her adorable twins.

The next best thing I could think of was to get her thinking about making something for her new apartment.  Adding her creative touch to that new space to make the place her home.

You might have an idea how excited I was to hear the laughter and fun return in later conversations.  She told me of her plans to use stretched canvas over wooden frames on her dining room wall.  The wall decor is complete and I am so very proud of our daughter.  I hope you enjoy her creativity.  This is her take on “Eat,Pray, Love” and I think it is FABULOUS!

Our daughter made these home decor items when the twins napped or were put to bed for the night.  She needed some time to decompress from her little “Adrenaline Junkie” in the making.  That little one seems to have no fear!

She is even eager to help Daddy with hanging the curtains in their new home while sister steadies the ladder.  These two treasures give me a joyous heart.

I hope you enjoy your week.
