When I began this blog two years ago, I included the tag line “inspiration comes from everywhere.” I have shared my inspiration and hope that my posts have occasionally inspired others.
Last September, I heard from a friend that his wife was interested in a photograph of mine. She asked for permission to create a painting based on it.
I was amazed by her talent when I looked at her website Danielle Hatherley and was honored at the prospect. Below is the incredible painting “Summer Glow – Boulder ”
Friday night, I was able to meet her and see the painting at a lovely art gallery near Golden, Colorado. Mirada Fine Art Gallery Inspiration is a two-way Street.
Sometimes the sky above the nearby peaks is so beautiful that you just have to stop and take it in.
There are so many ways and reasons why it’s important to support local businesses. Independent book stores are my favorite places to visit no matter where I travel.
It’s been a while since I shopped for toys, but for the month of April I’ll be spending a lot of time at a Denver toy store, or should I say four wonderful stores? Timbuk Toys has four locations and I am the April Author-of-the-Month at all of them. This is a great example of a local store supporting a local author; something that takes ‘Shop Local’ to another level.
It’s fun to spend time in such a happy place as I’ve been able to share ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON with people shopping for birthday gifts, a few teachers, a dad looking for a gift for his daughter, and of course children. Sharing my book with children makes my teacher 💜 so happy! I was even surprised by a friend who came after seeing my event posted on Facebook.
I’ll be visiting all four stores during the month so if you’re in the Denver area, check out TimbukToys and buy a signed copy or two of ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON!
We had springlike temperatures this week. I’m talking sleeveless shirt and sandals weather. But if you know spring, this morning’s views should come as no surprise.
Charlie loves the snow! He looks for the deepest pile he can find and burrows his face in. He happily frolics through drifts and pristine off trail snow. His most recent addition to his repertoire of enjoying the snow is roll in it on his back.
