ANNA SWEET SENDS REGARDS TO KEY WEST
Welcome to the world Ruby Star!
I'm thrilled to share with you all my most recent masterpiece. She was created on July 9th and is truly a one of a kind :) 
My new project... Art + Wineeee.
For those of you curious as to what I'm doing out here on the west coast, here's the story: 

Steve and I purchased 10 acres of land in the Dundee Hills of Willamette Valley. If you know anything about wine, you'd know some of the worlds best Pinot Noirs are coming out of Oregon right now.

We are overjoyed to have a little piece of wine heaven for ourselves and are working with one of Portlands top architectural firms to design an "Art Barn" as well as, a main residence and tasting room. 

So far we have cleared and prepped the land and will begin planting and construction of the Art Barn this fall. If all goes well, we hope to start welcoming guests as soon as next summer! 

Here are some images of our project and as it progresses, I will keep you updated!

How Am I Going to Do This?
Traveling with kids is always a struggle, and the more kids you have, the harder it gets. If you have several children, you can probably relate to this opossum. With six children clinging onto her back, she's probably questioning her decision to procreate. While they may not be on her way to Disney World, these baby opossums are certainly in for a wild ride. Walking along this narrow fence with all of her kids in tow is a skill most parents can't claim, but based on the look in this new mom's eyes, it may not be as easy as it looks. Likely they all got down safely though as opossums tend to be more nimble than most humans.
Mom!
While it has been a while since Disney's The Lion King was released, there are several scenes that tend to stick in everyone's mind. One scene, in particular, shows Simba tugging at his father's ear in a bid to wake him up. Just as Mufassa wasn't having it, neither is this bulldog!
His pup seems to have stolen this move directly from the famous scene, as she tugs on her dad's ear while he snoozes. Whether the pup was looking for something to nibble on or just looking for some attention, he decided that going for his dad's ear was his best option. Either way, this pappa bulldog doesn't look happy about it.
This Face
All parents recognize the look on this dog's face. It's the look that we get when we're woken up by a crying baby in the middle of the night, knowing that our day has to start in just a few hours. Knowing that we likely won't be able to get back to sleep. While those in the animal kingdom don't have to get up for work, they still have to deal with late-night feedings. They say, "The eyes are the windows to the soul", and in this case, this dog's soul is clearly exhausted. Staring at the human behind the camera, she just might be wondering why they have enough time to stand around taking pictures but hasn't come to rescue her yet!
Interrupted Siesta
Every parent is familiar with this situation. There's no break time for mommy and daddy when there's a young one running around. Despite how tired they are, they're constantly seeking our attention, and one way or another, they're going to get it! This rhino was enjoying a siesta when it got abruptly interrupted. Her offspring concluded that he needed some of mom's attention, and let her know by sitting on her head. She can try to keep pretending to be sleep, but kids rarely give up easily once they've set their minds on something!
Staying Safe In Momma's Pouch
Many new moms will admit that they were more overprotective after their first child was born than they were with their others. This is likely because new parents are practically clueless and tend to be more nervous. It's not uncommon for newborns to be compared to a Joey or a baby kangaroo. Immediately after a kangaroo is born it climbs into its mother's pouch. Just the size of a jellybean, the pouch is where the Joey feels safe and is able to drink their mother's milk. It's in the pouch that they're able to grow until they're large enough to take care of
When They Gotta Go
Why do kids always find the need to announce their bathroom habits? It's almost like if they're not broadcasting to the world that they need to use the restroom, then they can't go. Then there are the kids who say nothing and just go right there and then. Looking at this picture, it could be said that the same goes for ponies. While this horse is used to her pony taking care of his business wherever he pleases, she probably wasn't banking on him choosing to go at her feet. The exhausted look in her eyes is something every mother is familiar with. As a mother, you need to learn to pick your battles! At least he's urinating away from her leg.

I'm Going to Close My Eyes For a Few Minutes
Every parent has been here on more than one occasion. Whether the coffee never kicked in or sleep was simply impossible, most parents have come up with a way to keep tabs on their children while still getting in some sleep. This worn-out momma bird seems to have figured it all out. That little guy underneath his mother's wing may be wide awake but seems to be understanding of the circumstances. An exhausted new mom came up with a way to nap while also ensuring her newborn remained safe by laying on top of them. Not only does it help her keep tabs on her chick while she rests, but this makeshift blanket keeps everyone nice and warm.

Blink Twice For Help
Snickerdoodle seems to be over the whole mommy thing and is desperately asking for help with her eyes. It's the same look all new moms have every time they leave the house. If you aren't a parent, then you may confuse her look for one that's asking for a treat or for a walk, but most likely she's desperate for a break from her pups. Unfortunately, there's very little the human behind the camera can do to help her out. Snickerdoodle may have gotten in over her head, but her doggy anxiety will only last as long as her pups are nursing. Unlike humans, dogs start to wean her puppies in just four weeks.
Snuggle Buddies
Children make the perfect snuggle buddies. When they fall into our arms, as parents we tend to feel a sense of calm and comfort. That emotion seems to apply to the animal kingdom as well, as we can see in the photo. This cat momma is hugging her baby tightly, demonstrating her love and maternal instincts. Parents tend to underestimate the importance of hugging and snuggling their children. Their development heavily depends on this contact as well as the way their caretakers treat them. By simply hugging your children, you can reduce feelings of loneliness, depression, and anxiety. Who knew!?

American troops of the 1st Infantry Division leaving the port of Weymouth, England en route to Omaha Beach in Normandy in June 1944
Going into the Battle of Normandy, a horrendous fight that lasted from June 1944 to August 1944 over the control of Western Europe must have been a stomach churning experience for these soldiers.
As some 156,000 American, British and Canadian soldiers made their way towards 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region did they know that they would be fighting non stop for almost a month?
The fighting began on June 6, but it was meant to start a day earlier. A bad weather delay held off the attack for 24 hours, as the troops shipped out Eisenhower told them:
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you.


Crow Native Americans watching the rodeo at Crow fair in Montana, 1941
Beginning in 1904, the Crow Fair is essentially a massive family reunion hosted by the Crow Nation as a way to bring together all Native American tribes of the Great Plains, culling tens of thousands of attendees from this great nation.
Held every third week of August near Billings, Montana, the festivities are similar to that of a county fair albeit pushed through a lens of Native American ritual and celebration.
The rodeo happens daily at the Crow Fair, featuring everything from youth events to professional horse and bull riders. It's truly an event that should be experienced if you have the chance.


Drought refugee from Polk, Missouri, with his son awaiting the opening of orange picking season at Porterville, California in 1931

The dust bowl made Americans migrants in their own country, running from the devastation of their homes and farms to pacific coast in search of a seasonal job. These hard working Americans were seen as nothing more than intruders who wanted to suck the government coffers dry.
Enticed to California by flyers offering jobs as crop hands, these migrant workers were derided by California residents who were also looking for work during the Great Depression.
Many of the immigrants who came in search of work were mired in poverty, and the lucky ones were given jobs picking seasonal fruit and vegetables for barely any money.

Dutch Resistance fighters armed with captured German weapons talk in the streets of Breda, Netherlands following its liberation in 1944
When Germany took over much Europe at the onset of World War 2 it was like a shock akin to being thrown into a cold bath. No one expected the Nazis to move as quickly as they did and with such brutality.
As the war went on resistance fighters from across the continent formed their own secret groups and struck back at the Germans, slowly winning their countries back.
The Dutch resistance group helped the allies with counterintelligence, domestic sabotage, and communications within the occupied country and in 1944 the southern part of the country was liberated, it took another eight months to regain control of the Northern part of the Netherlands.



Future 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, photographed with wife, Jacqueline Kennedy, and friends/family on their wedding day in Newport, Rhode Island on the 12 September 1953.
It’s no surprise that JFK and Jacqueline Bouvier had a storybook wedding, after all they were America’s couple. Stealing away to Rhode Island for their nuptials on September 12, 1953, they were the focus of media scrutiny the likes had never seen before.
Their union was as close as the United States has ever gotten to a royal wedding, with hundreds of kookie-loos outside of St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church waiting to see the newlyweds.
Following a blessing from Pope Pius XII, the couple were married by Richard Cushing, the Archbishop of Boston and a close personal friend of the Kennedy family.



Irish poet and playwright, Oscar Wilde, photographed in 1882. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, the early 1890s saw him become one of the most popular playwrights in London. 

Well known cheek and literary genius Oscar Wilde spent much of his time on Earth either writing brilliant works of salacious art or dishing out sass like he was getting paid for it.
In 1882 he came to the United States and spent a year traveling across its wide expanses and visiting cities like San Francisco. During that time he gave 150 lectures and ended up speaking to 200,000 people. At one point he even spent the night in a silver mine in Colorado, an evening that he loved. He explained:
I dined with the men down there. They were great, strong, well-formed men, of graceful attitude and free motion. Poems everyone one of them. A complete democracy underground. I find people less rough and coarse in such places. There is no chance for roughness. The revolver is their book of etiquette.


King Ferdinand and Queen Marie of Romania arriving at Dover, England for a state visit on May 12, 1924
Born in Edinburgh in 1875, Marie of Romania was wed to Crown Prince Ferdinand in 1892. She gave up her life in the fields of England to become a beloved monarch in Eastern Europe. Researchers say that it’s because of her that Ferdinand allied himself with the English against Germany.
After more than 20 years in the wilds of Romania, the King and Queen went on a diplomatic tour of Western Europe in 1924. They visited France, Switzerland, Belgium and the United Kingdom where they were openly welcomed by King George V who announced welcomed the couple saying:
Apart from the common aims, which we pursue, there are other and dear ties between us. Her Majesty the Queen, my dear cousin, is British born

Martin Luther King Jr. at the pulpit. Martin Luther King Jr. spearheaded the Civil Rights movement throughout the 1950s and ‘60s, delivering fiery speeches that called for the end of segregation, not through violence but through loving your neighbor in spite of their faults (no matter how racist they might be) and turning the other cheek.
Six months after the March on Washington novelist Robert Penn Warren spoke to King about how he wanted to use non-violence to create an integrated society. King explained:
I think [violence and hatred] will end up creating many more social problems than they solve, and I'm thinking of a very strong love. I'm not, I'm thinking, I'm thinking of love in action and not something where you say, 'Love your enemies,' and just leave it at that, but you love your enemies to the point that you're willing to sit-in at a lunch counter in order to help them find themselves. You're willing to go to jail.

Presidential Candidate, Senator John F. Kennedy, talking to his brother and campaign manager, Robert F. Kennedy, in a hotel room in Los Angeles during the Democratic National Convention in July 1960.

Quite possibly the most important Democrat National Convention that ever occurred happened in July 1960, when Senator John F. Kennedy scratched and clawed his way to a nomination for Democratic candidate with his brother at his side as campaign manager.
Kennedy was facing off against multiple old guard Democrats but his fiery, take no prisoners attitude caught the elder statesmen off guard and he earned his spot at the top of the card. Taken by John Loengard, this photo shows a moment between the two brothers where John was telling Robert about his pick for VP. Loengard explains:
I was doing a story on Bobby Kennedy. The morning after Jack was nominated, we went up to his room. The brothers talked very quietly, and Jack told Bobby he wasn’t going to choose [labor union leader] Walter Reuther for Vice President. . . . I waited outside for Bobby to come out. When he did, he was furious. We were walking back down the stairs, and Bobby was hitting his hand like this, saying ‘Sh*t, sh*t, sh*t.’ You know, he really hated [Lyndon] Johnson.

Princess Elizabeth did her part for the war effort when she served as an ambulance driver for the Auxiliary Territorial Service during World War II. 1945.
During World War 2 everyone throughout the allied nations wanted to do their part for the war effort, even Princess Elizabeth. She wanted to be apart of the effort so badly that she spent months pestering her father to allow her to do something for her country.
Finally, when she was 18 years old, she was allowed to join the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service where she trained as a mechanic and a truck driver while also acting as an ambulance driver.
Queen Elizabeth may seem stuffy, but during World War 2 she was gung ho as anyone to make sure that freedom rang throughout Europe.
