My muse has left their old, brown leather book somewhere by accident. It looks like it’s seen years of wear and tear, and upon opening it your muse discovers that it’s full of wishes that never came true and times in their life when they were hurt/alone/sad. Send me a “✝” to read a wish or sad memory (specify which.) from the book.

I’m honestly surprised at how quickly I was able to paint this. May still work on the background. #wip #art #watercolor #kansas #buffalo

**Ad Astra Cafe, Strong City, KS. 

That is Strong City. That strip of buildings. It’s the town. There is no reason for anyone to ever drive through unless you lived there, but, because the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve has opened, enough people come through to enable a real chef to open a cafe that’s open Fri Sat Sun.

We stopped there last year. The beautiful peach salad and creme brûlée and burger were the best things I’ve ever eaten. Until Saturday. When we stopped in again.

That’s pistachio-encrusted goat cheese with mixed greens covered with a maple vinaigrette. Pete’s burger is topped with gouda cheese and mushrooms and onions and more spices than I have in my kitchen and came with fried brussel sprouts. Oh. And a bit of pie.

In this family we do it out of love… most of the time.

The thing I’m going to miss most about Kansas City is ragging on Liberty.

I’m gonna start a new drawing series on here. It’s going to be called the “Belated Birthdays” series because I can never seem to remember or plan ahead on time peep’s birthdays. So what I’m really doing is doing a drawing for everyone in case I did miss or gonna miss the chance to say happy birthday. ;w;
This one’s for Mak.

No.  That’s my way of sayin’ I think Ricky’s knows what’s really important in a gal; it ain’t her looks.

:/ Ya can’t back outta this now, boy, you literally just called me a truck. 

I was referin’ to how tough and reliable ya are.  You know I think yer a dead sexy truck.  Stop worryin’ so much.

Hmph. I know how much you like your truck but if ya find it sexy, I’m honestly concerned. Please tell me you ain’t one of THOSE people. 

I don’t know who THOSE people are, but unless you’re in my truck I’m not plannin’ on doin’ anything.

Good. Cause that’d be weird. :/ It’s weird enough that you’re comparin’ me to a truck. But y’know… just rev up the engines and we can drive all night.
