My youngest daughter, Mary Kathryn got her first grown up apartment and we were so very excited for her. It was a lovely apartment with a wonderful roommate. This was a fresh new start to her next chapter. She had settled into a job with Disney after completing her internship. She couldn’t have been more excited! I had fun roaming around Goodwill stores finding a desk, chair, table to paint. We also got her a beautiful bed. She was set. Then I remembered that she wanted a painting I had started years ago. I had started it for her sister but when she and I decided to go a different direction I had decided to keep this one. So I started a new one for her. That is when Mary Kathryn said she wanted it for her first apartment. She was 15 at the time.
Little did I know how fast these days would fly by.
Now I needed to give this painting the energy, passion and upgrade it deserved and my daughter deserved. Mary Kathryn was rising out of the ashes of her childhood. Out of the homeschool years and out of the years of feeling different and alone. Now she is ready to start her own life. She is on fire!
