Oh Where Oh Where did it go? :(

Time flew by wAy too fast these past two months...while doing that, I enjoyed meeting up with my Momma that is recuperating from her stroke in December of 2010 rEmArKaBlY. My two blonde sisters are Becky (beside me) and Barbie (beside my Momma). Absent from this pic is my sister Carole and brother Will.
I was the CANDID photographer at my nieces wedding while there in PA and my niece wanted a pic of the back of every one's hair...this is the shot I had them pose in, and I LOVE IT~
This shot above was a creative one...I actually cropped it to have just the bottom portion of the bridesmaids dress, it was gorgeous~
The Lovely bride, my GREAT Niece Carissa, and my Mother. Mom no longer walks with her cane or walker either. Aren't they just so precious?
Last but not least, the GORGEOUS shot of the bride before the wedding with her mother... Pic taken from my camera stretched up above my arm just to get an aerial shot...She was breathtaking~

I spent about 1.5 days editing the pics of the wedding rehearsal and wedding day; it was well worth it~

Be on the look out for a silent auction that is coming benefit little Amelia, Kathy Black's granddaughter. More to come....

Hugs to all, I sure do miss blogging...miss SO much, but I am enjoying life, regardless of how busy it is~

You too?

Well let me be the first to say I LOVE ALL THE PICS CC...
I LOVE the B&W. The bride looks amazing along with you and your sisters and mom.
So glad to see you blogging, if just for a brief moment.
I've been thinking of you so much knowing your mom was in rehab too. It's been so so hard. I'm hoping by the time you all get here, mom will be settled somewhere comfortable. It's so hard.
Thanks for your prayers and your sweet comments. I've missed you soooooooo much.
Take it easy now, so you can enjoy your time here at the cottage in less than 5 weeks YAHOOOOOOOO

And out of the blue drops in Julie ! You are doing a great job with those candid's. I love those photo's the best in any collection.
I had trouble seeing an older mother in those pictures.
Gosh she looks healthy and young.
I am so "out there" these days. I simply have to get it together. We will be meeting soon and I surely can't wait for our adventure.

Dear dear CC!!!! Oh my sweet, it is as if you were in my HOME THIS MORNING! I Just came in from doing some weeding. Yes, Ruben and I BOTH did all the landscaping....ALL OF IT! Boulevard garden, the hill, the back...he did all the carved woodwork: SHUTTERS, OVERHANGS, GATES, can't see it all in the photos...I hope to keep this little extra blog updated for those who are interested in the development of RABBIT HILL...lovely called that because we have a GAGGLE OF RABBITS who come and eat the thyme...I don't mind; they are so darn cute and the thyme is prolific. YOU TOO HAVE CHANDIES EVERYWHERE? Oh yesterday I had so much fun in my studio. I changed the brown curtains above my settee to WHITE and I put aqua SILK curtains on my little opera house theatre (that I built). What fun this summer has been.Yes dearest, I hope to one day visit so many of you who have made me so happy and if ever in The Twin Cities, you have a place to come to. I can't wait to see your AUDREY pic when you find the right one!

MUCH LOVE TO YOU and thank you for stopping by! Anita
