Slides from the past

Slides, or what we used to use to store our images. 
A modern-day fossil. 

And upon them, portfolio projects for my
FIT application, way back when.  

My beautiful sister Jeannine, offered her glamorous sensibilities to the shoot.  
And my acceptance letter, I got!  

How I loved that organza trench & the 'Little Gold Dress' with French cuffs & enormous vintage buttons. 

There were many more slides too, but this was all that the day's organizing revealed. 

Now, back to work!

A 12th birthday for my daughter.

 Monday was my daughter's
12th birthday and we had a wonderful birthday weekend celebrating her last year of true childhood.  Next year, 13--wow, how does it go so quickly?

As I watch her grow into her preteen years--expanding her horizons at school, pushing herself to move up in her dance class that she loves so much, accepting changes in her world--she humbles me.  She has grace beyond her years, determination to make things happen, and a beautiful eye for seeing 'something in everything'. 

I love the person that she is and I'm so honored to have been gifted this spirit from the universe. 

Motherhood, with her by my side, has been my greatest gift.  I look forward to each new chapter while slightly nostalgic for the one we are leaving behind.

Happy Birthday Somerset,
here's to a great
12th year!
