I've been incognito for a few days because Tom and I went over the rivers and through the woods to Indiana to visit Aunt Dixie and her brood. My cousin's son, Justin, got married this weekend and we were happy to witness the joyous event.
Sadly, we took exactly three pictures over the weekend and none of them of my relatives, dammit. But here we are at the Holiday Inn in Fort Wayne. Note that I'm wearing my Carnation Pink for the first time - and no one asked if I'd made it either! I was so relieved. :-)
We had a wonderful time. I love their hides! as my mother used to say. Every single one of them, but especially my beloved cousin, Leslie, who shares my passion for creativity and knows all there is to know about garment fitting. She's a devout seamstress and marveled at the darts in my vest with complete understanding and true wonder. She is a such a joy - just wish she didn't live 500 miles away. Here we are with Aunt Dixie last year after my nephew's wedding.
I'm so very grateful for my maternal relations this Thanksgiving. The heck with family values - I truly value my family, especially those incredible Hoosiers.
