Family Dinner

It was a wonderful funeral.
Well put together and such perfect speakers.

We ALL went to Chuck-A-Rama after the cemetary.
And I wasn't mad.
Cause those brussel sprouts, carrots, banana squash, and giant roll weren't half bad.
In fact, they were good!
And for the kids...what more could you ask for then green jello, pudding, slushies, and soft serve at one sitting?

I've been wishing and hoping this sweater would come along in my life every since I saw this picture.
And then it did..
And then it was $135.
So I'll keep wishing and hoping that I can find it for $10

Carla Lani Cannon
Today was the funeral for my loving aunt Carla. From the time she was diagnosed with a brain tumor to her death was a short 5 1/2 weeks---on February 17, 2011. I feel so blessed to have been able to live close by during this time. To be able to visit, see the experiences my Mom spent as her primary caregiver, and be apart of the process. I loved seeing her room with enlarged pictures of all who love and adore her. I loved seeing her still beautiful hair and skin. I loved hearing her laugh still there.
Today, though emotional, also sweet. Thinking of family who has already passed on, and together with those of us still here.
I will remember Carla as a smart, beautiful, righteous women. An aunt who was interested, fun, and thoughtful. A friend who was adventurous and talented. A sister who was kind, creative, and sweet. A daughter who made her parents proud. A student of life with her endless interests in books, the french language, well traveled, active, a movie buff, an artist, a computer smarty, a gardener, photographer, and a late nighter. I love Carla.

At the cemetery we sang 'Aloha Oe' accompanied on the ukulele by my cousin James. It was so neat to sing a favorite song of Carla's, a song of her favorite place, Hawaii. A song my Grandpa would sing to his children.

Lyrics from the chorus:
Farewell to you, farewell to you
The charming one who dwells in the shaded bowers
One fond embrace,
'Ere I depart
Until we meet again

Sweet memories come back to me
Bringing fresh remembrances
Of the past
Dearest one, yes, you are mine own
From you, true love shall never depart

jewelry art

I've been thinking about jewelry.
I'm in the mood to make some more.
I just love a well displayed collection of jewelry.
It's not easy to pull off, but when done right it is the perfect piece of functional art.

After seeing Justin Bieber Never Say Never last night I came home to browse for high tops.
Only Natural right? I couldn't get over the high tops that were all over that big screen.

And Justin...completely adorable.
And me...completely enthralled the whole time.

(can i be one less lonely girl?) see...look at his tops

"stop your mother's car, I just saw a shooting star"

(shoot, who's image is this?)
"a person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. you can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." -roald dahl
