What inspires you? ♥

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Hey everyone! I want to say a big thanks and hello to my new followers! I have just started this blog a few weeks ago, and am happy to have all you nice followers! So I ask you today, what inspires you? I am greatly inspired by my doxie Chloe (duh, I know) but I am also very inspired by the ocean! So I am putting up two pictures I did today for fun! One is tiny a 5x7 and the other is 8x10. I love painting sunsets. I used to be a surfer and mostly spent my time painting waves and palm trees, which is still very fun! You can see some of them in my flickr! Well I guess it is also easy to love the ocean when you live in Florida! I also love this ballon photo on the right, it feels inspiring to me also! ♥ Also I am happy to say I had another Etsy sale today! :)

Sunshine.. My story ♥

So on Sunday I went for a walk on the beach with my boyfriend and Chloe! It was fun and we found lots of sea shells and drift wood. I actually had surgery last month. I am proud of it. I kind of randomly found out I had a very rare form of cancer. It was able to be removed since it was contained. I now have one lung, but am healthier than before! It is a crazy story I know. And I am just writing this because I hope to be inspiring to others. I never thought why me through out this crazy time. I feel so lucky to be here to tell my story. And have lost some loved ones to cancer. You never think it will happen to you. But I have spent my time now painting and being with the ones I love. I will be going back to work in the second week in April. So I still have more time for some adventures. But I just thought I would share that little bit about me, not for sympathy, but so you all take everyday and love it! I am so happy with my life! And it has been a blessing. =) Anyways this post was really just to show cute pics of Chloe from our walk. But I thought I'd share that. I guess it was time. I felt great on my walk and plan to do it every week now. =) ♥

♥♥♥♥ Love!
