Saturday Night Layouts.

Here you go, Lu. I really hope you like. I'd like to spend some time expounding on how I got to this with the quote and all, but won't! I will tell you that that is ribbon on the side, cascading from the stars, and looks better when not smashed into a scanning bed. I will tell you that I think you are a spectacular person, and I love how we have connected over the flipping internet!!!!

"There is something greater and purer than what the mouth utters. Silence illuminates our souls, whispers to our heart, and brings them together. Silence seperates us from ourselves, makes us sail the firmament of spirit, and brings us closer to heaven. " -Kahlil Gibran

One more: Here's my take on dare #11. I have always loved this picture of my sweet baby Lukey and I. Sweet Baby Lukey is now 19. I miss him so much. Having nieces and nephews was one of the very best things that ever happened to me. No one could ever adore being an aunt as much as I have. Luke, Mark, Dave, Sarah, Mary, Zach, Drew and Jessica- you are my treasures. You have enriched my life and given me so much joy. Watching you grow has made me appreciate my own kids so much more. It goes by so fast, and now you are all growing up. Remember how much I love you when Christmas comes and you get a pair of socks or something else equally lame.

This is me at 12. The journalling reads; @ 12 I loved being an aunt, my family, side ponytails, Anne of Green Gables, My swatch watch, my sister's clothes, holidays, keds, being in flute choir, dancing, dreaming.

Hope your weekend is going well! Happy Saturday night!

Man, I go in this blog site and it's so very rich, I keep making a mental note to come back when I have a half hour to absorb it. SO WONDERFUL. Keep it up, Sawah, because it's great. . . poetry art pics. Love your sister's painting. Sigh sigh sigh.
