I'm posting this sketch of Don's as a tribute to Avan's new pet turtle, who stays at our house, which she named Vincent VanGogh after her favorite artist. (Order prints or t-shirts from www.caricaturesbydon.com in time for Christmas!)
I come from a wonderful family of ten kids. We're all spread out now (Ontario, Utah, New England, Nova Scotia), and I miss them terribly, but they are always close to my heart.
I was born in Montana to Canadian parents (my father was with the Canadian Air Force), and only lived there a few months before moving back to Canada. A few moves later, my father retired in North Bay, Ontario, which I consider my hometown. Fast forward (please) to 1990, when I met the man I would marry. He traveled to North Bay with his Beatles Tribute band, in March of that year, and--to make a long, dramatic story short--we were married in August of 1992.
I became step mom to two great kids--Jonathan (born in 1986) and Avan (born in 1989). Years later we would have two more great kids. Our daughter, Jensen, was born in October of 1999, and our son, Cooper, in March of 2002.
We do our best to love life, friends and family, and want to share it with all of you!
