Blessed is my first book. Not only is it the first book I illustrated but the first book I wrote. And writing it was a journey of gratitude.
I had an art collection that featured butterflies finished when talking to Sellers Publishing about a book about gratitude. What better way to illustrate being grateful for today than the butterfly? I love the symbolism of a butterfly -- the new life it is given, the beauty and uniqueness, and the flight.
I love to write down lists of what I am grateful for -- small little blessings that put a smile on my face. Writing this book -- pairing my gratitude lists with my inspirational writings/poems was music to my heart.
