Disney Princess Half Marathon

This past weekend my mom and I ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon at Walt Disney World in Florida! It. Was. Awesome. My family had no idea that my mom was going to run the race with me, so it was our little secret until we finished!

The race starts in Epcot and you run through Magic Kingdom and back to Epcot for the big finish! I don't think I could've found a better place to run a half marathon- especially for my first one!
my mom set out a little devotional for my the night before our race! it was so cute
walking to the starting line! 

One of the best parts about the trip was in the race itself. My mom made a devotional for us the night before the race, and she explained that she thought it would be special if we dedicated each mile to someone..and the surprise was that she had asked a few of my friends and family to write me letters. The verse that my best friend Erika wrote in her letter was Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." I wrote it on my hand and looked at it during the race as a reminder!

we finished!
The race itself was easier than I thought it would be when I first started training, but I think that's because my mom and I ran together the whole way. It was her first time in Disney, so it was awesome getting to show her the place I love so much! She understood why I want to work with the company one day. I sure hope that dream comes true! I could write five hundred more posts about our trip, but I need to get some sleep!

College Canvases

Hey everyone! I have some pretty cool canvases to share with you today! These were painted for some of my awesome friends!

 First up...Stanford:

The Stanford canvas was painted for my friend Jason! We met because we at the Coca Cola Scholars weekend in 2011. We were in the same group and became friends instantly! He is an amazing photographer, and he has sent me two of his favorite pictures, so I thought it was time for me to paint something for him!

 Next: Georgia Tech

This canvas was painted for my best friend from camp, Christina! She runs track at Georgia Tech, and her mom thought it would be cool for me to paint something for her to hang in her dorm room! Well, Christina LOVED it, and so did her roomies! I ended up made 3 more for their Christmas presents!

the first Georgia Tech canvas
matching canvases for these Georgia Tech roomies!
 Last but not least: A&M

I think I've already posted this one, but I love the colors and the different fonts! A&M has lots of traditions that make it special, so it's fun to incorporate them into a canvas!

Happy Birthday Mamaw!

This is a little (2 days!) belated post dedicated to my sweet grandmother! 
happy birthday to my sweet mamaw

She is probably my number one viewer on my blog, and she is so supportive of everything I do! She is quite the artist herself, so I know where I got my creativity from. Thank you, Mamaw! I hope you birthday was twice as sweet as you are! xoxo
