Looking Back, Looking Forward, and Looking Up


Well we've almost made it through another year.  One filled with joy, sadness, and unexpected gifts.




In January of last year I never could have imagined that I would launch an art website, partner with a dear friend to create artwork, and another great friend to showcase her artwork.




I also didn't realize that my dream to be back in France would come true so soon, and that I would spend time with the man I love in the city of love!




These are all blessings that I'm so very grateful for, and I sometimes pinch myself that good fortune has smiled so graciously upon me and my family in 2012.




For 2013, I have no set plans, no resolutions, but plenty of dreams.  I dream that I will be able to travel again to shores unknown and visit more beautiful places that make me look upward and expand my horizons.

I dream that my family and friends will continue to be blessed with good health, happiness, and the joys that living a full life can bring.  And I wish these things for all of you too!




And speaking of dreams, I have been so sick...still...that I almost forgot to tell you that some of our artwork was featured in the Fab Finds section of the current issue of Romantic Country Magazine!  This special piece is one that we created specifically for the magazine and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it for Fifi!  Thank you Fifi for this wonderful opportunity!!!  There was a bit of a glitch and the website listed beneath the pic was incorrect, but you can find this artwork and lots of others on our website at Low Tide High Style.

  3. Pretty art work and how good to have your art featured; congrats on returning to France. I spent 6 weeks in Paris years ago, and love Notre Dame and its stained glass windows.

  5. That is great to be featured in the mag already. I have my fingers and toes crossed that I will be traveling with five other ladies in France next September to shop the flea markets. Hope you feel better soon.

  8. Oh...I hope they correct the website listing in their next issue...otherwise, Congratulations!! You really have had a wonderful year and you worded this post so eloquently. I need to do a year end post and the words swirling in my head are just not right. But as always, I count my blessings and you are one of them, my friend!

    XO,
