Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

Perfect Moment Monday - Artiste

S is embracing his inner artiste, something I can only do if it requires music and special shoes.

The "other" arts (read: anything having to do with dexterity) escape me.  I practically failed 4th grade art class.  Curse the shoe still-life!  So, it's pretty perfect that he embraced my vision for the nursery and is executing it. 

Those little black detail lines are a PITA 


(Ok, so the top fish is too dark-pink and it's driving me crazy but I'm trying to let it's perfect that he's even painting them, right?)
