Jude and I - going to a luau in Colorado Springs...note the nice hair!
here she is from this summer all set for Brynn's wedding
and here she is at about thirteen...what a doll!
For those of you who don't know my sister let me tell you some items about her. She is a warm, funny, engaging woman. She is a bit shyer than I am but once you are her friend she is fiercely loyal. She can come into any one's home and figure out a way to make it really beautiful without you having to buy anything - just by moving things around in ways that seem simple when she does it but impossibly hard when I try. So I don't - I just wait for her to visit. She can sing - a talent that I cannot remotely explain my jealousy of. She belongs to a choir and that choir is going to sing with the NYLONS in a few weeks! Wow! And I won't get to hear it because sadly - she lives in Ontario which has no ocean - a point that I've made several times in her vicinity but alas alack to no avail. Because she is also a mother - a wonderful mom to two grown-up kids - Brynn Bea - who became a bride this summer and is also a wonderful musician and Harry who is musical himself and a wonderful photographer. Jude lives in a great little town - Perth - and makes her home in a dear cottagey place that she has made delightful and inviting. She is a reluctant entrepreneur who makes her living by tidying up people's finances and helping them bust clutter and chaos in their homes. I think her card should read Nanny McMorrison - she is quite magical but strict! She loves Perth and Perth loves her - she is always out and about when I call - helping with props for the theatre - at a choir rehearsal - or going to something special somewhere. I love her to bits!
And she lurks on this blog - yes she does - once in awhile she might write a comment but not very often - so big shout out to my twin - YAY!
