Hello, my friends. I've been out of the loop for awhile. My pregnancy was quite high maintenance and stressful but thankfully our little peanut came out perfect as a peach. She did arrive a little early and spent a few extra days in the hospital learning how to breathe but she's now doing fantastic! But--ohmygoodness--I forgot how hard and tiring a newborn was. Every night is like the night of the living dead cuz I'm a zombie (yes, I look like one too). She's worth it, of course, and it helps that she's so dang cute! Hopefully, I'll find time to do some artwork but in the meantime I'm going to follow what my fabulous artist friends are doing and store up my inspiration like squirrels during the winter!
