...my three little nieces pictured here at their uncle's wedding in 1986. They were just as cute as a button...all three of them...and grew up a few country blocks from our farm...and so I saw them often through the years. They are an artistic lot...drawing, painting, and creating works of art.
Here they are some twenty years later...at a family dinner last year.
Kathryn (right) now lives in Australia with her husband, Adam...and draws houses for a livelihood. And for the fun of it...she creates beautiful things in her kitchen...and in her sewing room.
Jamie (centre) is a nurse...and has been hostessing at Earl's for years as she put herself through school.
Cachet Cakes...and give her a call if you want a custom made edible work of art! And if it's cookies you need...why, she'll decorate those as well.
If you happened to be at Maelyn's first birthday party...you would have taken home a ladybug lollipop cookie...compliments of Lauren. (I'm thinking that Maelyn made the arrangements while out hiking Teapot Hill with Lauren earlier this summer!)
To my three nieces...who are all grown up now...may you continue to use your creative talents wherever the pathways of life may lead you. And happy birthday, Jamie!
