Today was wonderful! I won't go into great detail but it was just one of those days when things went nicely. Sort of like red pears and red roses....with chocolate for good measure. :)
See that sweet face below, the picture of innocence? Yes? That's Ashleigh,
Well, she passed her bar and was sworn in yesterday as a lawyer!!
What an accomplishment!
This is my proud Grandson, Frank. Ashleigh is his wife. He says he is going back to school. (He graduated from NYU film school) but now thinks that isn't enough. I think those two are going to make it in this world! Congratulations again, Ashleigh!!
She was sworn in yesterday and today my daughter and her husband and Frank gave her a Swearing- in Soiree! We are so proud of her!
Lots was on the menu but here is a couple of things I managed to take photo's of...I fell short on this one.
I managed to capture this corner before it was all gone!
This was a brunch so most everything was breakfast items...such as this egg dish above..with sausage, red peppers, asparagus, bread...made by daughter Erin! Oh who knows. It was delicious...and the popovers were beyond compare. I managed to capture the last few on the plate...and ...
Daughter, Mary, made these and added them to the other goodies..
There was fresh Salmon and cream cheese to go with the Popovers and...
Yogurt compotes with fresh blueberries, raspberries, and pineapple and a sprig of fresh mint...all from Erin's garden all sprinkled with some sort of cinnimon crunchy topping!
I looked around the room today and realized that nearly everyone there had degree's or were in the process..including my sweet husband. Me? High school! Babies! Diapers! Dishes! I did exactly what I wanted to do! I fulfilled my dreams. I have no regrets, none. I mean that.
Is the family crisis over? Probably not..but for this day I didn't have to think of it. God must be answering my prayer..I must be patient! Alas, it isn't one of my virtues...but I am trying.
