He's A Marine!

January 7th, we all drove to Paris Island in S.C. to watch my 20 year old brother Josiah graduate from marine boot camp. It was so amazing to see over 300 young men and women completely united throughout the entire ceremony. My brother left undecided, without proper confidences, and returned a confident, disciplined, determined marine, a man who, for the rest of his life be marked by his service to our country.
Words cannot express how proud I am of my brother!

Here he stands tall and proud!

Happy hellos!

A very happy, proud father!

Time For Some New Paintings!!!

Our lives may become increasingly more hectic through the holidays, but despite these busy days, Jonathan's still been faithfully in our backroom studio painting away! So many fun paintings have been added to the walls of my home, and to the homes of people surrounding us who also know what a treasure art is. This year many people decided that a painting was the best gift a husband could choose to bless his wife with for Christmas and so, Jonathan's work forever graces the walls of those homes.

Come on it and enjoy some of Jonathan Howe's newest works!

I'm an Aunt!!!!

Born December 14th, at 5:36pm! The most precious Christmas gift arrived, my little nephew, Timothy Paul Mcconnell. He was 6lbs 14oz, and 19 1/2 inches long. We have all been relentlessly celebrating the birth of this little one.

Congratulations to the wonderful parents, my sister and brother-in-law, and my best friends, Justin and Hannah Mcconnell!
