What is my favorite quilt? Even before I read about a linky party on the same subject here, I knew the answer: A Portrait of Emily, shown below. This quilt began with a photo of my daughter, Emily, taken at 6 a.m. on a high school choir tour. She was not thrilled to have her picture taken, but I loved that picture, and just knew I had to create something with it.

|The reception was at a lovely golf course near here. Their party room was beautiful and spacious, with golf course views on 3 sides. And the tablescape was also lovely! (always looking for wedding ideas - I have 3 daughters...)|
|We had such a great evening! And yesterday was OUR wedding anniversary - 35 years!!! How can this be? They say that the days go slow, but the years go fast, and boy is that ever true. |
Happy Anniversary, Scott!

|Emily created a photo collage poster, and got the theater management to display it in their "Now Showing" glass display case. So special!|
|Ryan did a stellar job - on his first wedding as celebrant! Ryan was serious, and tender, and funny...the whole ceremony was full of love and special meaning. They wrote their own vows. And they both cried.|
|This was so fun! After the ceremony, we all spilled out onto the brick street (did I tell you, our town is adorable?), and waited...until K & A came out, and we all threw POPCORN! How perfect is that?|
Stay tuned for more wedding pics!
|...that my darling daughter, Hannah was born!|
|She's been celebrating her birthday for over a week! My other daughter, Emily, made a fantastic cake to celebrate the birthdays of Hannah (left) and Genevieve (right). We also had Italian food, and even belinis!|
|Hannah has always been cute, sunny, bright, funny...can you tell I think she's awesome?|
|And why be boring and dull, when you can be exciting and fun?|
|Hannah spreads joy wherever she goes! She and her boyfriend, Danny, had a stay-cation this summer, finding fun things to do and places to see all OVER Chicago!|
|Why just smile when mugging is so much for fun?|
|My wish? A long, healthy and happy life for my sweet girl.|
|Happy Birthday Hannah! Thank you for being you! Love you lots!|
