Maggie, Don and Me

This summer some of my best friends all made additions to their families with the cries of sweet babies.

As a 31-year old, married for 3 years...together for 8...the obvious question looms--- when are you having a baby?

Well, I already have a baby...Maggie Anne and she is going to be 9 in December. She's a sweet, generous, thoughtful girl who always welcomes me home with a smile and a wag at the end of the day. Maggie is one of my favorite subjects! There are currently two paintings of her in my house- one of her at my in-laws and dozens in my sketch books. The next painting I am doing for me...for of "the three of us".

A few years ago, a booked called "Marley and Me" came out and D bought it for his sister who's dog is named Marley. AS you know that book soon became a movie and tonight D and I watched "Marley and Me" and literally cried like babies (I did more than he did)...I realized that Maggie is our Marley. She's been with us from the beginning. Maggie was just over a year old when I came into her life...and Don picked her up in Winter Park as an 8 week old puppy.

I love my Maggie.
