I'm a few days late with this post but I wanted to say that the
Relief Society (the women's organization in the LDS church) was 175
years old yesterday and I'm proud to be a member! This photo was taken
on one of the best days of my whole life--six women (plus tall Ben in
the back) drove 4 hours to Queens to do clean up after hurricane Sandy.
We worked hard cleaning out a garage and basement for one family and
helped demolish a woman's kitchen (that's her daughter in the front)
that had been rebuilt after the last hurricane. I'll never forget a
Judy Pate ripping up hardwood flooring like a boss. It was such a
memorable day and we were all proud to wear the Helping Hands vests and
represent the Relief Society and Mormon Church. #iammormon#helpinghands#reliefsociety
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.
