Celebrate Me Home

Home for the Holidays

The last two photographs were taken after both my parents had passed away and there was no home to go home to anymore. I still try to spend Christmas with at least one of my siblings and other family. Family, forever.

Bridal shower favors, painted by my sister. We gave a bridal shower for my nephew’s fiance when I was in Alaska in June. My sister paints glass and she and the bride-to-be painted the ornaments. Wild roses from Alaska.
