Our summer had been going along simply and relaxing when, in July, my daughter bought a condo. There was a lot of painting and readying for about a month and everything turned out beautifully! By mid August she finally moved in with her cousin, Katie, as her roommate and thereby officially making my husband and me empty nesters.
In the meantime, during my weekly art class I had been working on this painting. As it was being finished, I decided to give it to them as a housewarming gift. I thought this subject was so simple, summery, and feminine, and it looks perfect hanging in their dining room. Congratulations to Carrie and Katie, and may they make many fun memories together in their new place! PS: Thanks to everyone who helped the girls with painting, furniture, preparing, moving, etc. – they could not have done it without you!!
