“B&W of my life, day 140.”

“I love wild flowers! I love being surrounded by nature even though I kill almost all of my live plants! Negatory Green thumb am I! Does that make sense? Either way I’m going with it hahaha. Any who, there are many wild sayings that pretty much feel like they are lil reminders to tell me from up above that I am the way i am on purpose. This is me! Broken. Not perfect but ridiculously a wild dreamer. So to you wild ones follow your wild heart and remember wild hearts can’t be broken!” ❤️

“I had a dream that I had a pink cockatoo named Rosie so I was convinced I needed a pet bird. Not as convinced, my husband told me I could get another dog instead, so now I have a Boston Terrier named Rosie. This is the first bird that came to mind when I was illustrating tropical birds for #cpwildheart“
