While In Telluride....

...this past summer, I had the wonderful experience of teaching many private art lessons.

One of my students, Debra Boker, is a writer and speaks of her enchanting time in Telluride in the article featured today:

We are keeping in touch as she one day plans to do a more extensive piece on my art (BrookeAhana.com) and jewelry line Carny Couture.

Roadtrip Oregon & Idaho: Three Generations

Our destination, Benny's home in Idaho (just outside of Boise in a town called Nampa). Grandma and her family all grew up in Idaho. I learned a lot about my family on this trip and met many relatives for the first time too.

I adore this great-uncle of mine. He's my Grandma's 90 year-old brother. Aren't they the cutest siblings? They get along great too.

My 88-year-old Grandma somewhere along the way to Idaho.

A scary cafe we decided not to eat at.

My brave, beautiful Mother.

Breakfast before leaving Burns, Oregon.

The views along the way were delightful.

Grandma with my cousin Millie and I. She was absolutely exhausted at this point, but was a real trooper as she'd had a fall early that very morning.

My aunt, Annie. She made her cute apron and is amazing at her quilt making.

My uncle Jeff showing us around his mint farm.

Found! Relatives Julie (Uncle Benny's granddaughter) and her son Ryan. Love them.

My Uncle Benny. He really made our trip extra special. Such a cozy home and welcoming man.

I missed Ophelia on the trip, but Josie (Uncle Benny's schnauzer) was so loving and playful!
Oops, where did my hair go?

Here we are with Benny's daughter Carolyn and her daughter Julie.


Benny's other daughter Sharon with my Mom. Those girls take great care of their Dad and always stop by to check on him - I would too he's so much fun!
