In 1915, she began her career as the cover illustrator for Good Housekeeping Magazine for as long as she wanted the position. She stayed for 15 years and was paid was paid $1,500.00 per cover making her the highest paid illustrator of her time. These covers are perhaps what most of us know her for. They show the simplicity of everyday life and in these times of instant everything it is heartwarming to look at them and think of a time when life was so family oriented and simpler. I have several of them framed in my home and it just make me very happy to see them everyday.

But I had to do a quick Father's Day post for the wonderful Father's in our family. Hope you are all having a wonderful day with your Fabulous Fathers.
You are an incredible father because....
YOU ALWAYS CHANGED THE POOPY DIAPERS.
YOU MADE ME LAUGH WHEN I WANTED TO CRY.
YOU MADE OUR SON LAUGH WHEN HE WANTED TO CRY.
YOU WENT TO A VERY CROWDED DEPARTMENT STORE CHRISTMAS WEEK TO GET THE TOY OUR SON ASKED FOR WHEN I FINALLY FOUND THE LAST ONE.
YOU WENT TO EVERY BASEBALL AND FOOTBALL GAME AND COACHED, WATCHED EVERY SCHOOL PLAY AND CHEERED THE LOUDEST AND CLAPPED HARDER THAN ANYONE WHEN ZACH WON HIS FIRST FILM AWARD.
YOU ARE HIS BEST FRIEND, HIS WORKOUT PARTNER AND HIS DAD.
To my wonderful son,
YOU ADORE YOUR CHILDREN BEYOND HAPPINESS.
YOU PLAY BARBIE, DRESS UP AND TEA PARTY ENDLESSLY.
YOU ARE YOUR DAUGHTERS FAVOURITE PERSON ON EARTH AND YOUR SON LIGHTS UP WHEN HE HEARS YOUR VOICE.
LIKE YOUR DAD, YOU ARE ALWAYS THERE AND NOT BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO BE BUT BECAUSE YOUR KIDS ARE EVERYTHING.
YOU LEARNED BY EXAMPLE AND THAT WARMS MY HEART.
Watching my husband with our son and our grandbabies makes me happier than anything in my life. I love and adore you both for the amazing men and father's that you have become.
