Some fun thoughts...

My close friend [prima=cousin] Kristy married this past Friday to her sweet man, Evan Garcia.  The Garcia's wedding was beautiful.  I was blessed to be a part of her court.  They are a special couple that love the Lord and they are highly favored and blessed.  Prima you made me cry!!!  Congrats!

With that said, I was looking at some old pictures and videos [since the next day after the wedding I got the 24 hour stomach flu- ugh] and I just had to share these pics and video of two of the most cutest boys I know: Jonathan and Joshy.  I have taken care of these rugrats since they were newborns. I love them and their family dearly.  They were part of the wedding too. One video is of them playing around and the other is Jonathan promoting my husband's blog: Listen to the ending, it sounds like some monster growling in the background. [It's hilarious]

My 2009 Art...

I usually never, ever do this but here are some of my paintings from this past semester. I took Still Life and Portrait atelier classes. [for the second time] The media is Pastels: hard and soft. I need to work on pastel technique/creating the right texture especially for the skin, allowing to leave my strokes in and not smudge and smoothing out my edges. [and there is always the proportion issue]. So, yup. Hope Heather is happy. ;)

Finally a graduate...

If you know me, you know that finishing up my bachelor degree has been a looooonnnnngggg journey. April 27th, 2009 marked the day of that accomplishment.

This semester was a very hectic one, with: internship, 2 drawing classes, kids ministry @ frc, taking care of a home and husband... Phew... But God big time gave me strength and perseverance to finish everything and on time. I was blessed with a great cooperating teacher and supervisor.

Well, just to wrap it up. Though I really didn't want to walk, I did. First, because I made Heredes walk back in 2007. Second, it was too much of a big accomplishment to not walk.

Most memorable moments of that day were: Adding Ribeiro, in pencil, to my card so I could here the presenter say: Marcella Meza Ribeiro. Seeing my family up in the stands, especially my daddy. Phew! I almost cried- don't know why. Maybe it's bc he has a great smile ;). Exiting to U2 and Coldplay. Having a great lunch @ Texas de Brazil with my family. And coming home to a clean house- compliments of my husband & his creativity. So thank you to my family for setting an example of finishing what you start. And to a very special couple that paid my way this last semester. $2,000.00 as a Gift Revolution gift. Glad to repay you back with a degree.

My next mission: find a job!
