So I decided to write a lil bit about the woman who gave birth to me as the national celebrate your mother day is approaching.

My mother's name is Linda Sue, however she goes by Linda now. She is an accomplished water color and oil painter, and illustrator. She has her MFA in Illustration and teaches illustration at Savannah College of Art & Design. She is pretty amazing.

She has always been a wonderful mother, willing to do just about anything for her kids. In addition she is also a fabulous cook who wishes she was Italian. She has always kept our entire family involved in the arts and making us comfortable with being creative.

This picture is from our most recent family trip to Costa Rica right after Thanksgiving 2007. We saw and did some really cool things. This is when we went Canopy Zip Line - which was awesome.

This weekend we will probably relax - well she will. I will be in Tybee Island, GA for Art in the Park with my jewelry booth. She has offered to help but she needs to take a break and relax! She works very hard and deserves time to relax.
