No. 1

So here's my oldest, Alex. Isn't she a beauty? :) I'm not partial or anything:) She's the one on the right, in a picture with her best friend Kerry. They're both such beautiful and wonderful young women.

A true artist by nature, art has always soothed Alex's soul and balanced her. With college, committees that she runs/helps to run  on campus..., work, a boyfriend, and a social life she's quite the busy gal.

 She's always making the most wonderfully personalized collaged photo cards for everyone's b-day or special event. And she's always making gifts or cookies, or something to give to others.

 Last year on my 50th she totally organized a surprise party that blew me away. How she got the others to not open their usually chatty mouths I'll never know. (And I'm a natural detective-ie- I don't look for clues, they just pop right in front of me:)  ) And of course the invite was a beautiful collage piece that she made. A truly astonishing, phenomenally hard working, and giving young woman- always, always  thinking of others.
