New Boots

Breaking in new hiking boots by walking around town with my boys,

Okay, so we goofed around a bit,

smelled the flowers,

ran into the playground,

and stopped for a treat!

Goodbye Bead & Button Show

The Bead & Button Show swirled past - a whirlwind of colorful people and gorgeous jewelry. There is an intensity and excitement that hangs in the air, despite overfilled schedules and exhaustion. Creativity rises like a fever, infecting teachers, students, staff, exhibitors and even passers by...

Hotels, shops and restaurants in Milwaukee can feel it too, not just because their numbers swell, but because moods and spirits do too.

Such a thrill to be a part of it, an honor to have taught for 6 years.
But my family needs me now.
So I will be staying home, finding balance.
Tilting the scale towards my kids, my husband, my home

I will miss you Bead & Button
... and Milwaukee
