Emma's Pond

Each year the Utah Foster Care Foundation hosts a Chalk Art Festival up in Salt Lake. I had never heard of it before until my friend Camille told me about it. Some of you may remember her, she hosted one of our giveaways with a name drawing. You can check out her work here or here. As you can see, she is an amazing artist!

She has participated in the Chalk Art Festival for a few years now and this year she contacted me and asked if it would be okay if she did a little tribute to Emma. She called it "Emma's Pond." I was touched that she would think of doing this for us. Unfortunately, the festival was Friday and Saturday and I was camping all last week and didn't get home until midnight on Friday and then it was raining all day Saturday so I never went up to Salt Lake to see it. But Camille posted pictures on her blogs. So check out Emma's pond here and here.

A big thank you to Camille and all those who were working with her!

I saw that pond. It was lovely. Camille and I went to school together. I didn't make the connection that it was Emma's pond. That is beautiful.

So The Princess and I were at The Gateway on that day and we saw Emma's Pond. We didn't get close enough to know that's what it was because of all the rain-dodging, but it looked so awesome. That's so cool that they would do that!

This is so cool. My "step-mom" is the CEO of the Utah Foster Care Foundation so I love going to this. Also my good friend Becky is friends with the lady who drew this, saw it on her blog and recognized the story, small world.
