"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

On The Wings of Love

Our family motto is "No Caged Birds." One reason being that Kirk and I love to mock (it's a favorite pastime), and we always get a giggle out of husbands who claim to "give their wives their wings." Oh, please. As if a husband owns his wife's wings in the first place. I love it when Kirk allows me to fly, and it turns out that Kirk loves it when I let him have wings, too. We are sure to tell one another "thank you for giving me my wings" on a regular basis.

In all seriousness, though, following dreams has been an important facet of our marriage, which is what inspired me to create this:

It's been in the making for way too long for me to admit to, and I'm excited that it's finally finished! I used layers and layers of wall putty to fashion a giant low-relief wing on our wall. I hope whoever moves in after us doesn't mind wall sculptures...or hard work, because it's going to be a pain in the tookus to scrape off!


  1. So glad to see it finished and in all its beauty. Love your motto too.

  2. I'm so glad that you're not caged. That would be triste.
