Pterodactyls and Cheese Whiz Rainbows


Tomorrow is my best friend Autumn’s birthday!!! So, I thought I’d share a special little post in her honor!

I’m going let ya’ll in on something pretty personal. I’m going to show ya’ll what I look at when I’m falling asleep every night, and the first thing I see when I open my eyes in the morning. This is the sort of thing that defines people. If I woke up to a blank wall every day, I’d probably be a very different sort of person. I’d probably find less joy in life, and walk around with an angry frown on my face. BUT, instead I am happy, unique, and exuberant!! And it is all because this beautiful peice of art hangs on my wall:


Drawn by Autumn (left side), and my cute cute cute nephew Brogan (right side)
Autumn is pretty cute cute cute as well

I don’t know if you can tell, but on the left side of this lovely poster  we have a pterodactyl flying under a rainbow (or should I say “cheesy-macaroni-rainbow”?). There is also a pig-tailed girl having an umbrella sparring match with a narwhal. I like to think that pig-tailed girl is Autumn. I wonder why she doesn’t open up her umbrella to protect herself from the cheesy rain… Maybe she likes it! I also wonder if the cheese is hot melty cheddar, or if it is the type of cheese you get with nachos at a football game… And I also wonder if this is a friendly spar, or if the narwhal has done something mean.. I feel like it must be a friendly one because I’m pretty sure all narwhals are extremely nice and kindhearted.

The right side is obviously a T-rex doing a pencil dive into a vat of fruitloops, narrowly avoiding landing on top of a whale. My nephew draws with such detail!

I was kinda kidding earlier when I said that this picture transforms me into a unique and exuberant person, but it certainly does bring a smile to my face. How can I not smile when I’m reminded of my bestie Autumn skipping around my kitchen flapping her wings and making pterodactyl screeches for my B-man?

Happy Birthday Autumn!!!

I’d be really curious to know what other people have hanging on their walls or what they see when they wake up in the morning!
