a collaboration



Up until 4 years ago my husband Andy and I (while happily married) had very separate lives- we had our own friends, our own hobbies and interests and our own identities. We would say goodbye in the morning and head off on our separate ways for the rest of the day, sometimes only spending time together on the weekends. For many years this worked for our marriage but these days we spend all day, every day together! We run a business together, co-parent together, homeschool together...and while we still love our alone time and still have our own identities and interests, we are around each other all the time. And let me tell you...this lifestyle is NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART! It can be challenging, annoying and down right humbling! The transition into this set up has taken us a few difficult years to get used to. There are days when I am convinced that our marriage would be way easier if we only saw each other on the evenings and weekends but those moments are fleeting.

It is when we sit down and collaborate on creative projects together that I am reminded just what a gift it is to have someone that you love by your side. And while we struggle, we disagree, we are weary some days, there is magic when we put our heads and our hearts together.

Lovely post! Thank you for sharing this honest look into your lives, it's incredibly helpful to see the struggles along side the successes. I also appreciated another of your recent posts where you stated that you've had more failures than successes, but you're working hard everyday doing what you love. You and your family are incredibly inspiring:)

You know... I think Andy's drawing has more ... 'life' to it than the photo. More humor and knowledge in her eyes. And your work makes her pop right off the page. Fantastic.
