Mid Thirties.

Well, my 35th birthday has come and gone and I'm slowly absorbing the thought that I'm officially in my mid- thirties.  I realize it's not so bad, but I keep asking myself 'where did the last 5 years go?'.  And if this is an indicator of how fast the time flies, in 5 years I'll be turning 40 and my older son will be entering his teens, turning 13.  CRAZY!  Let's slow down here... time doesn't have to move that fast, my kids don't have to grow up that quickly and can't we add an extra hour or two on a day so I can finally get it all done so I can really enjoy my summer???
So there you have it, photos of me, innocently at age 4 and last year at age 34, somehow wanting to hold all those years in between in my memory long enough to slow the world down, if even for just a second.   

(If I'm a little slow on the blogging front this week, please bear with me... I have 3 kiln-loads of work going in and out of the studio this week so that I can take some holidays with my kids in the month of August.  The boys are being lovingly cared for at Grandma/Grandpa 'camp' so I can plow through the's amazing how much I end up missing them when they are gone despite all the extra studio time I get in...)
