Life has been busy, but in a good way.  Getting things done.  Unfortunately, daily blogging not being one of those things.  Daily blogging is hard!  Its not easy to get on the computer with all the crazy stuff going on all the time.  My hat is off to all of you out there that can pull it together and say something meaningful every day!  Clearly, getting back to writing daily is going to be a huge challenge for me.  But I am not going to give up just yet!

Today was an incredible day for me!  Went with ERL and all the kiddos to see this:

He is my very favorite painter, ever.  As soon as my eyes set on an original work by him, I have to admit I cried a little.  Of course my favorite painting, Starry Night wasn't there, but a ton of amazing paintings and sketches were, including three of his self portraits.  Such an amazing experience, and I'm so glad I got to share it with my kids!

This painting simply took my breath away.  I don't think I will ever forget the way I felt when I stepped in front of it.

I would encourage anyone in the Denver area to spend a few bucks and check out the exhibit  It was really cool, they even have an audio tour for adults and kids.  Ah, check out the Denver Art Museum anyway, its awesome!  Lucky for me, there was a bit of a mix up with the tickets for the exhibit and we now have a family membership to the DAM!  Looks like me and Babygirl are going to be spending much more time getting artsy this winter!


  1. I saw this when it was in Seattle. Fabulous!

  2. You definitely can't deny your Dutch roots can you? I've spent many a 'cultural' (read shopping) outing to Holland and not once did I ever stop in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, sadly. He is a true master of colour and technique maybe I'll be lucky enough to see this exhibit in Canada at some point.
