The inspiration for this design came from a vintage camp chair that we found at my husband's grandma's home. We have been helping clean out her home as her health has been declining.

The vintage camera is from our collection.

If we have no peace (414)

jana miller blog
Mother Teresa quotes are my favorite!

"If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."

One thing we say often at our house is, "I'm on your team." How easy it is to forget that and become adversarial.

hand lettering by jana miller
These words-I think they are what each of us want.

eat pray love
It's about companionship.

When we walk at Balboa Island and we don't want to walk too near other people, then we cross over to the other side of the street.

It's about change and changing together and likemindedness.

"bel far niente" -Italian for, the beauty of doing nothing. I struggle with this. I'm a do-er, an achiever, a planner.

Eat Pray Love by Liz Gilbert (409)

drawing by jana miller
 I'm reading this book. It's excellent! I love how she describes things so I'm planning on some Italian quotes for the next day or so.

If you are wondering why I chose blue-I'm not sure why. But I think it's because she described God as Blue.

What are you reading?

jana miller
Agree or disagree? I'm still deciding. I don't think we have to lose everything to do something.

But when we have nothing to lose-we might be more courageous-or just worn out!

Laguna Beach, CA (407)

Drawing by Jana miller
Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places in California. The beaches are amazing with rock cliffs and white sand and lots of little coves.

My favorites are El Morro and Crescent Bay but you can't go wrong at any beach in the area. Watch for the dolphins-we see them almost every time we go!
