I am moving my studio while some renovations take place and have this picture hanging on my clothesline of inspiration.

This is Jesse Elizabeth (on the left and me on the right), we are 2 weeks apart and were coincidentally born in the same hospital room! Our parents (her dad & my mom) met at the food co-op when we were 5 and married when we were 7! I’m writing a kid’s book about our growing up because we were initially so different– she a tom boy, dukes of hazzards loving (and lunch box toting) firey little one. I was shy and had long hair and liked little house on the prarie (that was my lunch box, too!).

Anyhow this picture captures us with the same mary lou retton hair cuts (go early 80’s childhoods!) and a t-shirt over my bathing suit. I love how we’re sharing, probably candy, and how excited Jesse is! I also love how I can imagine us walking in the woods, so calm, on our way to the brook in Nova Scotia. It is also cute for me to imagine our parents snapping this shot:)

I miss sharing all my days with you Jesse xoxox
