I thought it was fitting to wear green, since today it has been 2 years since my double lung transplant in 2010. Green is the colour of Organ Donation.
Happy 2 year lungiversary to me! 
What a wonderful last two years it's been. Here's my two life advice tips; smile at all the little things, and don't sweat the small stuff, life is much too short for that! 

When you struggle to breathe every single day, it's amazing how taking a deep breath never, ever gets old. Every time I laugh, breathe, smile I think of my donor and their family. Thank you for saving my life.

Thanks for making my opening studio shop hours such a success! Did you miss browsing the studio this month? You can catch the studio hours next month, the first Tuesday and Wednesday of every month! 

Hope you were able to escape the heat last night. I woke up with a pounding headache! I'm cottage bound for the weekend to sit in the nice cool lake. Is there any better feeling? 
Cheers to modern day science!
