Simply Sweet

Here’s a lovely surprise…considering my post yesterday,
today’s Illustration Friday prompt couldn’t be more appropriate! Score.
I know the goals I outlined yesterday were to keep things simple but I still want these to be spectacular. This is just a first pass that I knocked out as soon as I opened my email and saw this week’s email from Penelope.

Check back later this week to see how these evolve.
I’m spending the next week and a half in Montana where I’ll be working on some pretty exciting new art, hopefully I won’t have to keep all of it under wraps.

I keep thinking of that line in ‘An Officer and A Gentleman’ where Tom Cruise says,
” He was leaving for the rest of his life, and he hadn’t called a soul and he hadn’t packed a thing. Can you explain that?”

If it were me, Jack could have easily said “because she was stupid!!! She went to bed when she was tired and she thought she’d pack when she woke up…. but of course she wasn’t thinking straight because she had to be at work at nine. What a retard! She was stupid!!!!”

Anyway, my plane leaves at 7:30. Let’s hope I’ll be on it.
Happy Friday!

About last night. 🦌💛 Crawling home on all fours after celebrating at the epic Puppy Par-tay my brother and sister-in-law put on for my dog nephew, Milo tonight. It was everything and more, complete with a bone-shaped swimming pool. #dreamtheimpawssibledream 🤘#livewithnoregrets We otter go exploring more rivers. 😍
#lifeachievementunlocked A Mama said there’d be days like this😍
Totally alone in the Natural History Museum’s Hall of Mammals for hours! Hashtag Blessed. It’s 1 AM. Do you know where your mini gummi bears are? 
#fairgame #latenightinthestudio #goodbyeoctober We’re celebrating today. I opened my eyes to Matt  crowing, “Amber! Wake up. They made it!” We have been following the inspiring pilgrimage of my mom @incredimombo & sister @prilliegirl_shakazoozoo via text & @instagram for weeks. They set out to trek across Spain a month and a half ago. This morning they walked their 500th mile and crossed into Santiago. Having read a lot about their journey before they set out to do it, I felt concerned at their determination. The Camino is not easy. It requires walking 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week. You have to carry everything you need on your back. The toll is physical, mental & spiritual. Many prepared and experienced hikers do not make it to the end of the journey the first or second time they attempt it. ☀️ So we’re dreaming impossible dreams and celebrating too. It would seem today is a good day to set out to do the impossible. When we moved to Utah I was sure I’d been too spoiled by my childhood on the ocean and my twenties in Brooklyn, to ever find anything to love in the desert. I fully planned on dying of boredom. I don’t know what I’ll do when we outgrow this little Wasatch apartment of ours! Watching the Sun kiss the mountains goodnight from our tiny balcony is beyond description. This picture doesn’t begin to do it justice. Home again.
