Good Bye, Grand Island

Today is most certainly a scone day. A Pepsi Max and scone day. A Pepsi Max and Wegman's blueberry scone day.

I have good news and bad news. The good news is, I finished coloring my facebook cover photo that I will be posting on my official house closing date which has been set for this Monday, October 22nd!

I love Grand Island and I will miss it dearly, but I am so anxious to get into this new house!

So the bad news is that I committed a murder last night, and the victim was my left big toe. Last year I ran into issues regarding my two big toenails from playing indoor soccer. There is so much quick-stopping on a surface that grips so well that your toes are constantly being jammed into the front of your shoes. Last night was the first night of the new indoor season, as well as the death of my left toe.

I was up until 4 am last night trying to find a way to make it stop throbbing, as it was constantly shooting bolts of pain up my leg at random intervals and keeping me from lying still (sorry Justin). I eventually fell asleep after putting a soft slipper sock over my foot with the hope that its cozy comfort would outweigh the zinging pains. Seems to have worked. Today I have a dull pulse of ache that flows up and down my foot that will hopefully lessen with each passing day.

Illustration Friday: Water

"There was nothing he hated more than taking a bath."
Not overly thrilled with this week's submission, but I wanted an excuse to experiment with drawing water.

Two Sneak Peeks

As I anxiously await the closing of my house new house (or should I say old new house?), I did some extensive doodling which became a b&w illustration that is soon to be colored. Once I finally get the official closing date, this illustration will become my new Facebook cover photo.

Oh, the journey begins... 

Also, last week Justin and I had an engagement photo session with Erin Oveis Brant Photography, and she posted a preview picture...which of course only made me hungry for more!

At Beaver Island Beach on Grand Island <3

I am SO proud that this amazing photographer is from my very own dumpy hometown. She lives in San Diego now, but just happened to be in visiting and doing photo sessions for the week :o) 

I knew that if I couldn't get Erin for my wedding photography, I at least had to get an engagement session done.
