The uninhibited imagination of a child is truly a beautiful thing. We all begin our lives with whimsical ideas of how things come about and dreams of what they could be… and then at some point along the way, we learn otherwise. We are educated on common sense, science, physics, and so on, telling us what things are possible and logical – and what things aren’t. Thankfully, like Mica Angela Hendricks, we may be fortunate enough to produce offspring who will show us the way back to our former worlds of wonder.
Read this. Long story short, every parent gets backed into a corner at some point or another, when their child uses their own rules against them. But when Hendricks, an illustrator by trade, was forced to relinquished her sketchbook to her daughter, the results turned out to be sort of magical.
My recent trip to the ‘Ville was bursting at the seams with things to do. One of the most important was a bridal shower for my amazing best friend who is getting married in June! The combination bridal shower and graduation party was a joyous gathering of friends, family, laughter, and love. Prepare yourself for lovable moments ahead…
When I see something engaging, I have to take a photo. The moment of intrigue that compels me may very likely become inspiration for a drawing, be it a week from now or a decade from now.

And sometimes stuff is just adorable and I can’t resist capturing the sweet moments in life.
