Run to You

Drama Darling performing "Run to You" by Lady Antebellum with boyfriend #1 and boyfriend #2 at an open mic nite in Woodstock, IL. Their first time performing at "Stage Left Cafe" and I thought they did a great job!!!

We just got back from Galena, IL and my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary family get together and had a wonderful time. I am in the process of collecting pictures from the family and am excited to post them soon. What a beautiful place. The scenery was breathtaking and we had so much fun together.

We are on our way to Galena, IL. A serene old fashioned town with rolling hills and beauty everywhere you look. We are going there this weekend to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. My sister & brother and their families as well as ours are staying at a beautiful resort in a lovely home my parents rented for us all. I am looking forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with my family, relaxing and reconnecting.

Here is my favorite wedding picture of mom & dad, they look so beautiful!

Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary my dear parents...I love you...xo
