It started when I signed up for Judy DeYpung's #DoodleDaysOfSummer. Learn more about it here:
I began my #DoodleADay August 1st. I'm excited about holding myself to some kind of journaling entry every day for a month. It may even be difficult to stop at only one. I allow myself a confined space on my sketchbook page... It somehow feels less daunting this way. Sometimes I wonder how I can choose just one thing to say, draw, or capture in my 3x3" space. Today it came to me AS SOON AS I woke up. Lincoln smiled at me when my eyes opened and I couldn't help but smile ... One of those deep, contented smiles ... And I thought: everyone should begin their every day like this. Smiling. Heart-smiling. So I will leave you all with this thought for the day.
Start Each Day With A Smile.
(And a Smiling Heart)

Big Kid Movie Night - not what we expected. But fun memories for sure <3
Tonight we had a movie night. After finally agreeing on a movie (selecting a movie title from a hat) we watched for about 30 minutes before the sound went out. Just the sound. The picture was fine. But there was no sound. At this point it was already way to late to be watching a movie, let alone starting a new movie so we just sat, and watched....a soundless movie. As we watched we made up our own words. Our own songs. Our own dialogue. For at least another hour of the movie....until the end.
The "scary" parts were less scary.
There were silly, humorous parts where there may not have been scripted.
We made do. We rolled with it. Instead of stomping our feet and getting upset/angry ... We made it a fun collaboration - a cinematic experience.
