California has done Michael good!
We have been so busy with Michael's ministry and my artwork that we have had little time to spend exploring the "Secret Garden". We decided that we needed to get out!
Unfortunately, we have both put on weight and spend most of our time inside our little apartment' with Michael reading and studying in preparation for his sermon and his ministry visits. I basically sit in the studio and do art. So, we decided it was time to get fit! Latin Dance lessons was the answer!
So, taking a slight diversion from my artwork and in preparation for the Christmas season, and knowing that every year we create a unique Christmas Card - this year we decided that we wanted the card to bring a grin to peoples faces.
Michael and I have been married for 3 1/2 years and Michael comes from North Carolina. So in order to put to mind all of his North Carolina family and friends (in regard to the negative influence living in California might have on him and with a desire to put their minds at ease) we created a very special card. Here is the prototype:
The truth be told, we have not started taking any dance lessons; but, the picture made us both smile really, really big and Michael started dancing around the apartment! Hey, it's a start!
