Today was the one year anniversary memorial of Officer Sean Collier's death. Everyone quietly clapped as the police officers entered the tent. It was an emotional service. I loved hearing the stories about Sean and what an amazing person he was. #MITSTRONG #COLLIERSTRONG
I snuck this photo in the Portland Airport. Turns out this couple was on my flight and then I saw them on the Silver Line. I asked if they were running the Marathon on Monday; they are. They ran last year--she finished 43 seconds before the first bomb went off and he was a mile behind her. She started running at age 34 and has run 52 marathons! He started running at age 50! They were a really nice couple from Vancouver, WA. I'll be cheering for them on Monday.
I am now President Emerita of the Arlington Ward Relief Society after 4 years, 10 months and 1 week. It was a good run. I served with amazing women and had countless wonderful experiences. #ilovereliefsociety
Tonight's R.S. Recipe Swap theme was cake decorating. Thanks to Tammy and Anika for baking all these cakes, making the frosting, and showing us how to decorate awesome cakes. Mine didn't look that great but it tasted good!
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
