Family times are so special and make us who we are. I hope you may take the time to enjoy this “guest post” with photographs attached. I have felt encouraged to reblog this post from my friend, Mark’s blog.
Thank you so much to:
I have had a few people recently following me who may have never checked this post on my friend, Mark’s blog out.
I wished you to ‘see’ and ‘share’ important parts of my life, family and one example of my artwork. I use pen and ink watercolors to make baby name pictures, along with having illustrated four children’s story books, which none are published. . . yet! I have drawn using pen and ink historical home tour buildings, homes and churches, both in Delaware, Ohio and Lancaster, Ohio.
I have three children, only one is interested in allowing her photograph to be shown. My oldest daughter is named Carrie (Caroline Marie). Carrie’s two boys are named Micah and Skyler.
Felicia is pictured a few times, with me and with my grandchildren, since until she gets married some day in the future, she will always be my ‘baby,’ too.
My middle son is named Jamie (James Matthew) and his wife is named Trista. Their combined family, since Trista was a single mother of two when he met her, are Lara, Landen, Marley and Makyah.
I have a great other brother, (my brother Randy just happened to be on my phone when I sent these photos off to my friend, Mark’s cell phone.) My brother, Rich is a runner, teacher, professor and activist. He and his wife, Susan, have had their love story published on my blog. I have featured my grandparents, my great grandparents and my own parents’ love stories in posts.
This picture name was for a little baby named, “Elliot.” Her “Aunt Jami” is my dental hygienist and was talking about how difficult it will be to find her name in print. I surprised her with her niece’s baby name picture as a surprise. She had told me about the India prints and colors, along with elephants in her sister’s new baby’s room.
Hope you enjoy the sights and let me know about the fun time you had while visiting over at Mark’s place, too. He is a journalist, who recently is focusing on his past and these photographs show his writing ‘roots’ and experiences. His wife, Karen, his daughter and boyfriend are featured in stories also. He is an accomplished, published journalist writing for newspapers and his blog covers sports, popular culture, issues and more. . .
I am blessed with friends in this blogging community who interweave their lives with mine. I feel like I ‘know’ so many of you.
Hope these photographs help you to feel closer to me, as your photos, stories, poems and news articles help me to feel closer to you.
Smiles and blessings sent your way.
Robin O. Cochran writes her blog with a folksy touch from Delaware County, Ohio, finding funnies to share on the Internet. As a mom and grandmom, you can tell she wants to make the world smile. She discovers worthwhile historical dates and important people to point out every month, because as a former teacher, you can tell she wants to make the world smarter.
Through that all Robin weaves stories about her family. We get to meet her mom, moved to a senior living facility, and her artist brother, and her daughter and grands.

But there are no pictures. Ever. Robin, you see, uses the computer at her local library to compose and publish her WordPress blog. I’ve discovered that and other facts about Robin — her hard job in the warehouse for Advance Auto Parts, for instance —…
