the sparkling weekend

(my new favorite picture of me and Tiger, taken by Mom)
So another holiday weekend is upon us. The minor holidays always make me want to be near my family. I am not sure why. I think I wrote here once that New Year's Eve makes me feel more thankful than Thanksgiving does. There's something about subtle holidays that strikes a chord in me and reminds me of how much I love my family.
However, I will not be home for the fourth of July.
I will be in NYC with my good friend Nicole. We both have pieces at Charmingwall for their July 6x6 show. I'm looking forward to spending the weekend with her and exploring the city!
Mom, Dad, Court, AP, Grampa, and Tiger, I love you!
I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July and that you get to spend it with the ones you love!!
