I’m blushing but, not like a bride.
I’m hoping to distract you from the fact that I’ve missed even saying hello in April or May. I’d like to invite you, instead, to jump right back into willowday with me. I do have this foliage portrait of a blushing Megan Markle as a bride that I hope will help! Yes. I’m busy working on foliage portraits and other artwork. I can’t thank you enough for spreading the word and your support.
Back to blushing brides and grooms though: did you watch the wedding yesterday?
Princess Charlotte and Prince George

When I heard of the special floral embroidery on the veil, saw the arch and then learned of Harry picking the bouquet from his front yard, I was so inspired that I immediately stepped out onto my own front yard to gather that same flowers: lily of the valley, birch branches and more to create a portrait for the day.
I feel like a once trick pony when I share that I baked our household favourite scones again, here, to set the tone but, they’re our favourites. Did you watch or do you remember what you did when Kate and William were married?
We’re just returning from a two week Spring break and we also traveled. A break, this time of the year, almost feels like it capsizes our family schedules but, with a very happy heart.

With summer around the corner, I’ll be back to share a few ideas to do with kids or for you but, I need the blog to move along with the tempo of our family life and my current art and illustration work.
