oh yes, honey, we can

Marcus planted this little lime tree in our garden last year, and right now it's full of blossoms and, yes, limes. I cannot wait until they're ripe. Rum punch for everyone!

If you ever need convincing that the Chookooloonks community right here on this site is composed by a bunch of bona fide rock stars, then, my friends, click right here to read the comments on yesterday's post. Seriously, have you read those? All of you who, within just 5 years, have gotten married, have gotten out of toxic relationships, have had children, have had grandchildren, have started over, have succeeded -- and most importantly, have become more authentic? We should all be so amazingly proud of ourselves and what we've achieved in the past 5 years. Let's take a minute to bask in our greatness, man. We've totally earned it.

And now, to the business part of this post: consulting my oracle, the winner of yesterday's giveaway of a 12x12" print "Sunday Blossom" is Leatitia, who said "In the last 5 years, I've graduated, moved in with my boyfriend, worked full time, moved back to my hometown sans boyfriend, started a new job in a new city. I also bought my first car and met my first niece."  Congratulations, Laetitia!  I'll contact you via e-mail to get your deets.

This week, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things -- now that I haven't got gallery openings or speaking engagements to worry about.  It's good to get back to some normalcy.  But before I do, I want to thank you for all of your kind words and support over the past two weeks, everyone.  It's seriously meant so much.
