Whenever I open my email, I am always more than pleased when I get a message (long or short) from one of my kids – or kid to be (our beloved Shelly who is engaged to Joey). This morning she sent me this photo of their engagement party last fall. It was the first time we met her family and we were as taken with them as we are with Shelly. Note that my son is going to add inches on to their grandchildren and hopefully Shelly will raise our grandkids IQ 20 points (she recently graduated from law school). As dresses are being chosen and plans are being made (August 17th), I need to get to my task at hand – their wedding chuppah. We have chosen exotic fabrics – so this is a new day (sewing experience) for me!
