I gave birth to the dapper gentleman on the right,
who tended bar and signed autographs
since his recent Star Wars YouTube went viral.
(Our son teaches High School and all the actors
in the video are fellow faculty.)
House cocktail was a yummygorgeous Blue Monday.
The kitchen is beyond charming with its farmhouse green
base cabinets, white uppers, and long stainless island.
A simple catered dinner of cheese and fruit platters,
light appetizers, pastas, salad, and bread
simplified party planning.
My brother-in-love was Mr. D.J. and brought a treasure
trove of 1980s hits to get us grooving nostalgic and young.
Can you believe some of our pals dressed up
in their ’80s letter jackets just for us????
A few loved ones in attendance above and below.
These crazy women who have been
making me laugh since we were 15
traveled distances to celebrate!
“Mexico” typography painting on canvas by me
Here I am with my cousin,
the birthday twin’s gorgeous wife
who has supported my art from the beginning
and filled their home with pieces I created.
My “Be” collage on book cover
This mixed media collage is one I created
during a painful chapter of my journey
and I am so happy to see it living
in this grace-filled farmhouse.
Peace to you right where you are.
