good things: wine, poetry, art
the 22nd was my mom's birthday. i got her this beautiful burgundy wine goblet from Chischilly Pottery on etsy. I also made her this little painting of an oak tree, with the word "Chene" written under it, which is oak tree in french. she loves the french language, and one of her favorite poems is this one called "the oak tree" about how strong oaks are no matter what storms or battles they have to withstand.
we also took her to see the van Gogh exhibit that is going on right now at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. good old vinny is one of her favorite painters, and i'm super inspired by his work as well, so it was awesome all around. lots of work i'd never seen before. i think it runs until may 6, so if you get a chance, i def recommend it!
