The Next Family Wedding

George and Dena will be getting hitched this fall; last night we were invited to celebrate with friends and family!  We missed the ones not there but tried to have enough fun for the whole group.  :)

Little Girl on the Fourth of July

Once before, I gave a photograph to my friend, who is an artist. Last week I gave her another photo because it reminded me of her work; it was of Ellie, taken by Kate.  Not only did my amazing friend paint a watercolor right away, she gave* it to me!  I am honored. Thanks, Mary Ann! (You can see more of her work HERE.)   

*She offered it as barter for help with technology...I am SO getting the best end of that trade, so I consider it a gift!

Little Girls in White Dresses

A pair of Battenberg hand towels that I've had for years...
...were the perfect size for Emma's dress.
A well-worn pillowcase mama bought when we were in Panama in the fifties was just right for Ellie's.
It only took a little ironing and stitching... end up with this!

We're home after one of the best weeks ever...more friends and family than I thought possible.  Can't wait to do it again next year!

A long time ago, in a far away land, a little girl had her first birthday.

It's been quite a few years since my first birthday in Germany.  Check out the detail on the dress I'm wearing; my mama made it for me.

One thing that hasn't changed; I still get that look on my face when I see a yummy dessert!
