~it started with a photo~

This is one of my favorite photos of my kids and husband when we vacationed in Cancun a year ago.


We spent hours each day in that clear turquoise water and
 I wanted something special to remember it with.
I contacted Melissa after finding her on instagram, and asked if she 
would paint it for me.
I told her my requests, no boat, and more muted hues to go with our decor.

Do you want to see what she came up with? 
~It's simply amazing~
This is the photo she sent me over email.


It couldn't be more perfect.
The colors, the people, everything, perfect.

Here it is hanging in our bedroom.




Love, love, love it.
Thank you Melissa for creating this piece of art I will cherish forever!
xoxo
