If you asked me what the most memorable moment of my life has been thus far, I would say it was becoming an aunt. Not just because I shared my sister’s labor pains with excruciating stomach pains of my own (some sort of sister connection here?), but rather how it all ended with meeting my new niece for the first time. It was a very special time for me and my entire family, and it began a new chapter in our lives.
The last couple years have been wonderful. And fruitful too, because I now have two more nieces who have brought even more joy to my life. Among other things, I have successfully brainwashed most of them to love all things associated with me “Cha Cha Mimi” and to dislike all things associated with my little brother “Mean Michael”; all meant in a playful spirit of competition of course. My real advantage in becoming their favorite is our shared love of pretty things.
Here are some photos my sister took while we were all together this summer. Modeling Anagrassia flower girl dresses are the two oldest nieces. The brunette in a ponytail is wearing (older leotard cut) Ivory #5810 lace with cream lining paired with champagne toned skirt with champagne sash. The brunette with light brown eyes and hair down is wearing #1109 champagne lace with darker nude lining paired with champagne toned skirt and champagne sash.
It was a wonderful summer!
I look forward to (slowly) releasing my new designs this fall & winter!
