Four-Four Years Ago…

My parents — Jake and Rachel — are on the left. Mr C’s — Ruth and Paul — are on the right. I was struck by how much I look like my father in this photo. Thankfully, I didn’t get his ears. Mr C is still the spitting image of his Mom.

I wasted a lot of time this morning looking for our wedding album to scan a photo. I cannot find it anywhere. I finally found this one in a frame down here in the basement. It was quite faded, but Photoshop does wonders.

Tonight we will go out to dinner with M & M, who are spending the week-end with us. We will officially celebrate in Chicago next Thursday. We are going to spend an afternoon and evening there and then head to Ft. Wayne, IN for Mr C’s 50th high school reunion.

On the studio front, I am working on the next 12 X 12 challenge, shelter. Since I am doing something more realistic, rather than abstract, it requires some Photoshop and design work. I just want to start cutting fabric!!

    Cute picture of both of you. Congrats on your anniversary.

    Congratulations! I can see the family resemblances, all right, as well as the now-you and now-Steve in that impossibly young bridal couple. Aren’t you glad we don’t see wallpaper like that much anymore? Talk about surface design!

    Happy Anniversary!!!!
    What a great picture! I am struck by the resemblance of Lisa to you and Steph to her Dad! (I haven’t seen enough pics of Mark to really say).
    I recall the wonderful story you told me about Steve’s Mom encouraging you two to get married. She must have been one heck of a lady!!


  4. What a sweet picture. Love the pillbox hat. Mr. C. was and is a handsome guy.

    Happy Anniversary!! We just celebrated our 32nd just last month. I couldn’t find my wedding album either, so I didn’t blog about it. Probably it’s still packed somewhere from our last wildfire evacuation.
    I have been so happy to see your art come together. I predict you will make Quilt National yet. Jen

    What a classic photo with your pill box hat/veil, the ornate wallpaper and are those carnations?
