Fresh Flowers

My girl is an artist. If given the choice, she would sketch and paint all day long. I try to keep a steady supply of markers and paints for her to play with. 

Other than art supplies, one of my favorite things to keep around for her is fresh flowers. We almost always have a fresh vase on the kitchen table, especially this time of year. She is always bringing in bouquets she has picked from excursions in our backyard and family hikes. 

Sometimes, a fresh bouquet is all my girl needs to spark some creativity. She studies the flowers and sketches them ever so carefully. She picks out just the right shade and adds the perfect colors. 

I want to honor my girl's passions and creativity and I want to keep her surrounded by beauty that inspires her to create.
