Our eldest was born with a love for art, of all kinds. As parents we have encouraged her to develop her natural talent and make available to her, whenever possible, the tools she needs to continue doing the art that she loves. Last Sunday my dear K and I went on the Red Trillium Studio & Garden Tour. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience, a first for K.
We stopped at two studios where K had the opportunity to see some of the art on display and chat with the featured artists. All of them, wonderfully talented, were more than happy to answer our questions. K listened carefully to everything they had to tell her and she walked away with a boost of inspiration for her own artwork that she quickly put into action on the way home.

I have a love for photography (obviously) and glass art. K has a love for sketching and portraits. I made a promise to myself that I would take a photo of us together as a special gift to each other, so we did. Later that afternoon we stopped at Alice’s Village Cafe, in Carp and enjoyed a quiet lunch together. (My meal was so delicious it inspired me to make some pulled crock pot chicken, today – Yum!) It was a perfect day, of all days, made even more special as it was Mother’s Day. (The only way it could have been any better would be to have my little V by my side, as well.)
I’d love to read about your Mother’s Day. Share about it in my comments or add a link to your own post and I’ll be sure to stop by.
