The look of love

If you're wondering what I've been up to, suffice to say that I was involved in organizing a 50th wedding anniversary for my parents which was held last week.

I thought for this special occasion, I would share a family photo with you. I imagine you can pick out my parents. As for me, I'm in blue and my sister is next to me.

Finishing the planning for this event took up most of my first week here in the USA, and recovering took the beginning of the second week!

We had exactly 100 attendees at the party, which my sister and I hosted at my parents' home. The location was their choice and it was a great one because they have a lovely, shady back yard and the weather was out-and-out hot: nearly 90 degrees. (Yes, I'm speaking Fahrenheit again.)

I'm having a little trouble getting back into the blogging routine after a crazy end of my school year, the trip over, and this intense family experience. But not to worry -- I may be slowing down on writing my personal blogs this summer, but I'm not giving up.

Nice to see you! (and your family)
I completely understand your being a little overwhelmed by it all: It must have taken some serious organizing!

Thanks for the congratulations! It is quite a milestone. As for the organizing, thank heavens for the Internet, which allowed me to deal with a caterer here in Olympia from France and communicate so easily with my sister about everything.

Sounds fab! I love big parties and I totally understand about having trouble getting back into blogging. Who can blame you!

Will we see more photos?
