It has been 4 years.
So much has happened, so much has changed and yet so much still feels the same.
E V E R Y T H I N G is different.
My previous business, White Lyme had run it's course and jumped out a window so we begin anew with the name Holland Sunshine. My name is (still) Sierra, however.
Holland Sunshine is the perfect name and the name that will last as long as my hand gyrates enough to create. Holland Sunshine opened a few months ago in full swing at www.etsy.com/shop/hollandsunshine. [[ Fancy URL to come soon ;) ]]
I feel as if I have so much to say and share about the glories of my day, my kids, my thoughts, my home, my art - yet they are so simple. My life is so plain and at the same time that in itself is the reason I believe I feel so much joy.
Bare with me as I begin my blog again and share with you the curiosities and complexities of my life as a mother, wife, artist, and advocate for Down Syndrome.
Below are some of my favorite pictures taken by me during my absence.
Damien & Grant at Keewaydin Island
Feeling the muggy humid air just saturate through his skin
Valentine nonsense, when he used to sit still for at least a minute.
One of the first times REALLY laughing
First birthday party - loving his new car
more car love
Easter dinner with my family
We just can't get enough of the boat, we are SO thrilled and SO happy
We LOVE turning 1. There's so much happiness flooding our hearts.
Kisses. The best kisses in the whole world come from babies <3
This image is exactly every reason why no one wants to be an adult.
Being a kid is the best thing in the world.
Snapped a pic right before they took my baby away for heart surgery.
