Colorado Bound and Tears

 Posts have been irregular lately.
We moved Kali back home after she completed
culinary/pastry arts education in Maryland.
Last week she accepted a job in Colorado - 
as a Pastry Chef!
An excellent opportunity for her - 
just far away from home.
Last night we emptied out her storage unit
and loaded up the U-Haul.
Finished up this morning with a few last minute things
from the house. 
 I did mention she was moving to Colorado,
didn't I?
The day she gets there - the high is supposed to be in the 20's.
So, cute little fluffy hats are in order.
And here is my Kali-girl and her
pom-pom Sable sitting in the U-Haul,
patiently waiting for food.

Seriously, I am so proud of Kali for
reaching out and grabbing her dreams!
So many of us never do that
because of fear, or finances, or any of a host
of other reasons.
I am so thankful that we were able to help her
reach her goal, 
and that she was able to excel and be successful.

Now. Back to drawing. Probably lots of blurred lines
today. It's hard to get the tears to stop.

  1. Good luck to Kali, Alice you can cry onmy shoulder anytime

    1. i'm doing better now - now that it's been a little while. and those daily phone calls help :)

  2. Lots of well wishes to Kali, so exciting for her. And Alice good luck with keeping it together, so hard to see your children grow & move away. Keep busy with your Tangles, they are always amazing & I love to see your Art!!!
    Take care!!!

    1. thank you so much! i've been trying some new things with my art - maybe i'll share some of the 'not awful' stuff :)

  3. I wish you both the best life has to offer. My son moved out a year ago and it's hard! So, I know where you're coming from. It will get better; it just takes time. You'll find new things in your life that will help. It's a hard change, though. We can cry together!

    1. we can cry together any time, dana :) but seriously, i'm doing a bit better. forever is a long time, though.

  4. God bless her Alice And her beautiful mom!!! You must be very proud of her!! Go Kali!!! xo

    1. i am definitely proud of her, lynne! kali is a good girl, she has a sweet, gentle spirit - she didn't get that part from me. she's found a church already and she loves her job.


I've been waiting to hear from you :).
