20

baby.us
Just one more piece of nostalgia this month, as my first born just turned 20 a few moments ago. This is a mutually favorite photo between the 3 of us who were present when it was taken- Jeff, our photographer. Juliana was just a little over one and we were visiting friends in Sarasota, after having left the Ringling School to come home and become a family. Its nice now to think that I had attended school there to make art, but this is my favorite piece. Happy Birthday Juliana! I wish we were together.

Hey peoples, want to come to California? I leave first thing in the morning for Palm Springs, LA, and Sacramento. I thought I would send some postcards along the way to share the trip with you.....

But first I should get to bed, more soon! xo,AM

    Yay, welcome to California, and to LA, home of the Whole Foods featured in the parking lot video. Avoid Lincoln Bl. if you can! Looking forward to your talk at the quilt guild.

  15. I don't think that I have ever left a comment before, but I enjoy your blog so much and your beautiful creations are so inspiring--I thought it was definitely time to finally tell you so;-) Thank you for being inspiration to little etsy shop owners like myself;-)

    have a wonderful time in California. I was born and raised in the bay area, but now live in the Portland, Oregon area. I do miss me some sunshine;-)

    such a beautiful picture--happy birthday to your firstborn!

    It's funny - She looks more like your husband in this photo, but at 20, more like you.

    And I think that she, like your other five, are your greatest creations. :-)

  19. I for one am excited to see you in California soon (in Sac)... and I think my darling almost 4 month old might be joining us part of the day too.

    Happy Birthday to your first born... the two of you are beautiful.

  22. Belated Happy Birthday, Juliana! Congrats, Anna Maria. 20 years of being a mama is definitely worth celebrating!

    Coincidentally, my firstborn reached the same milestone less than a week before your lovely daughter and I'm still a bit mystified that 20 years have passed since his birth. It's a bit surreal.
