Happy PPF!  Summer is still hanging on here, a little rain the other day but i'ts supposed to be 90 this weekend! 
I'm sharing several paintings from the past few weeks and a few pics from our summer beach trip with the family, and my birthday.  Seems like we didn't do much this summer and now school has started.  My boy is a freshman in high school and my daughter started her 3rd year of college this week.  My life is whooshing right past me and I want to hold on.  

With my happy in the sun
