For Now....

I love this quote I found yesterday and thought it fit perfectly with my mermaid illustration.
This is another one of the prints I will be offering in my Summer Soiree Collection....launching soon!

I do love picking up a good book and being transported to another time and place...even if it's just for a moment. I have been so busy lately, I may only be able to pick up a book for 10 minutes - then it's  back to "Mommy, we need your help," 
"What's for dinner?" 
" - can you drive me here?"
Can so and so come over..." 

"Can you help with my homework...I have a test tomorrow," 
you know, everyday things little kids need! 
So for now, I will just have to take the 10 minutes
 I get and enjoy my short "reading" trips to Paris, 
California and other worlds...in the pages of a good book or blog!


Have a great day my friends!

She's just adorable and I'm partial to redheads. Must be a waterproof book haha.

I read two books on vacation and started a third.
