If you get bored looking at other parents "Baby Pictures" you might want to pass my post on by. Cuz dang if these aren't some of the coolest baby pictures of my oldest "baby" You might remember Mette and Joe got married hours before the last tropical storm of the season hit South Carolina. So instead of doing the day after the wedding pictures the day after the wedding they did them the week after, when they returned from their honeymoon. :) I thought I just share a few because they are sooooo amazing. Tracy Turpen is the Photographer and she truly is the most incredibly gifted artist!!!!.
These two kids are truly hard core water babies!!!! Remember this is November the air temp is in the low 70s and the water temp is the mid 70s. And this is the child that was born wearing a full set of polar fleece. She owns more polar fleece then some stores do :)
Both kids graduated from college with normal (what ever that is) college degrees. Both kids love the non traditional water sports so they are carving out careers that allow them to combine their addiction with bring home the bacon. What they explained to their woefully out of touch mother is that Stand Up Paddle Surfing is a fast growing off shoot of board surfing and kayak paddling. What ever, I think it looks like loads of fun and a darn site less painful then the old fashion surfing!! :)
Some times the water is smooth as glass
And some times there are some nice swells to ride to shore on.
Joe makes it look easy enough don't you think?? :)
Oh and trust me I'd be back peddling a lot harder then that if there was a chance I would meet that frigid water up close and personal!!!
Looks like a scene out of "Water World"
Trust me she is a most amazing woman but she really can't walk on water :)

What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?" "Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real." "Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit. "Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt." "Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?" "It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

Impossible Things Happen Every Day !
Alice Laughed, "There's no use in trying", she said. "One Can't believe in Impossible Things!"
"I dare say you haven't had much practice", said the Queen."When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as Six impossible things before breakfast!" ~ Lewis Carrol

I'm a retired RN with a PhD in Investigative Psychology a mom of 3 grown children and grandma of 3 boys. I am a very lucky girl because I share my "couple of beads off center" kinda life with the perfect traveling companion,living a few of our life goals!! Since high school I have wanted to retire early, & live in Mexico learning and experiencing this most beautiful culture. Later I promised myself that when my time became my own again I would make art when ever I wanted!! It took a heap of livin and a whole lot of believing but I managed to get here. This journal is about my new life full of the adventures of living,learning,making art, and the creating memories.
