Scrapbook Date

Once a week I get together with my friend Dani…  We work on our scrapbooking projects, and just yak for a few hours.  It always feels great, and it’s a much needed outlet.  Here’s a snapshot of what I worked on today:

You are my sunshine, scrapbook page

"You are my sunshine..."

I’m working on my wedding album (yes, for the wedding that occurred in 2006.  yes, I know it’s 2010… why do you think I’m working on it???).  This particular page is about my little sister and my grandfathers fiddle.

Marie sang us her favorite song, “You are my sunshine”.  Marie is VERY special to me, so special that I named my wee girlie after her:  Lily-Ann Marie.  So to have Marie get up in front of everyone during the dance to sing for us meant the world.  And to make it even more special, my Dad played guitar, and Donny played my grandfather’s fiddle.  My grandfather left this world when I was just a kid, I never knew him well…  but his music speaks for him in my life.  It was a gift he gave all of us, and I’ll be ever grateful.  So…  for Donny to play his fiddle at my wedding was like having a piece of my family there, that otherwise wouldn’t have been.  I was fine during the entire day, but for that song I teared up.  It was truly wonderful.

Thank you Marie!

Thank you Dad!

Thank you Grandpa!

Thank you Donny Parenteau!

Having you all there made our day extra special.

Sorry for the odd tilt in the photo…  was using my blackberry, and was trying to avoid reflections on the photographs.
