-My good friend Edwina arrived this week :) As soon as I saw her I was all smiles. I feel so incredibly lucky and joyed that I have her in my life.
-Piccolo Shop sent me a lovely print by Yelena Bryksenkova. I love her work. They also sent me a cute zine.
-Grandma M sent vintage flatware from their house. The ones in the picture are from when she was little.
-Our little one is loving her learning tower. She was stirring like mama does in the kitchen and feeding dada :)
I've been seeing Christmas lights and wreaths up everywhere! I feel totally behind in getting into that sort of thing. I seem to always get preoccupied with other things. Have you already put up decorations at your home?

-Francis Bacon lounging :)
-We had a visit from Grandma M and Grandpa K this weekend.
-playing around with what's on the mantel. The artwork was a gift at our wedding from my friend Teruko.
-Our little girl with a shopping bag from Anthro. She put her wooden blocks inside and carried it around.
-It's been a busy week with maintenance people at the house quite a bit. We had a roof leak that messed up a wall. I'm glad it wasn't a burst pipe or anything.
ps: Happy Thanksgiving everybody! I'm so ready for some family time.

It took me forever to finish this drawing. I feel a change in the artwork I'm producing. Not just because I'm not drawing animals but the way the strokes happen feels different.
The epitome of the drawing is to capture our nursing relationship. There is some awkward moments like the hands being so large. I believe that stems from the awkwardness of motherhood. We try to pave our own way as mothers carrying our children and it is never fully easy. There are good and bad days. Days constantly change and a mother's perceptions of the world has to rapidly evolve with it. The dandelions create that dichotomy for me. The transition of change into something less vibrant but not less beautiful. I'm not sure if you associate dandelions with wishes? But I have ever since I was a little girl. I think of it as all the wishes that we have for our child.

Finished Reading recently:
-The End of Plagues: The Global Battle Against Infectious Disease by John Rhodes I really had no idea what to expect from this book and I was excited to learn a bit of the history behind vaccination.
