wow! Long time no see!

Oh I am so bad! I knew it was a while since I made an entry, but I had no idea it was this long! Summertime comes and I just don't sit at the computer. Now mind you, that's not really a good excuse, since I bought a laptop at the beginning of summer.

So for a little catch-up.

In June we drove to Chicago to attend my neice, Donna's high school graduation. She is a lovely young lady with the voice of an angel. I made her a quilt for her graduation present. I believe the details of the quilt are somewhere on this blog, but above is a photo of her with the quilt.

In July we made a trip up to Chicago to see my nephew, Joseph, marry the love of his life, Shelly. Many of you may remember that Joseph is the young man who was injured in Iraq. He is doing well, though has some medical problems that the VA does not address and has decided to seek private care. Don't you love this cake topper!

The best part of the wedding was that my brother, Dan, made a trip to Chicago and then drove back to Columbus with us to spend a week. We had an awesome visit! Oh how I wish I was living in AZ already and seeing my brother every day.

No travelling in August, I had medical appointments. I have more to write on this subject but will make that another post. It deserves its' own space - it's THAT good a story!

So for now, I will bid you adieu and catch up September in my next post.
