the thing that I think I love the most about road trips is having a chance to act like paparazzi with the sky while J drives. I can never take pictures of the sky while I'm driving (for obvious reasons), so when J is driving I'm kinda a maniac.
Here's one that recently inspired a new painting in the shop, warmth.
When you hear Bentonville, Arkansas, you might not think romantic weekend, but you should! J's birthday gift to me this year was a weekend in Bentonville staying at our favorite hotel brand's newest location, 21CBentonville, and visiting Crystal Bridges. The Museum and hotel are connected by beautiful art-filled trails, so it's easy to get around, especially if you bring a bike (we did!). Even better, a friend of mine from grad school just started working at the Museum, so we got to catch up with him too!
Everything about the weekend was amazing, and I am already planning our next visit :)
Last year, the to & from gift guide revolutionized my Christmas shopping. It took me from random but well intentioned gifts (like the year I bought J a popcorn maker.. great idea since he loves popcorn right?!? no.) to perfect gifts for everyone on my list. Well, the holiday 2013 gift guide launched on Monday and while I was scrolling through it checking off everyone on my list, I was THRILLED to see that my work was featured this year! I am so thrilled to be in the company of such talented artists, and thankful to be included, thanks Meg :)
Go check it out, and I'll bet you'll get your Christmas shopping done early while you're there too :)
