I've been gone way too long but it's been a hectic month. Our 16 year old daughter(in red) is in Japan this month and the empty nest has hit home (for me anyway). She's having a great time, has Japanese class 3 hours a day and the rest of the time is taken up with tours and exploring. Japan is a very safe country and she and her new friends have made the most of getting out and seeing things and exploring on their own. She's in Tokyo for 3 weeks and then on to Kyoto at the end of this week for another week. The above photo is of her at Harajuku dressed as "Sweet Lolita".
Above is her and her friend who bought identical costumes and when they were shoppping, one of their companions got lost so at dinner they had to dress up and apologize in Japanese.

I also want to say Happy Birthday to my son Nick, above. It's been great having him home this summer to help with the quietness of the house. We love you and are so proud of you.

No other news here for now, but things will be getting busy soon with some great new designs that I'm having photographed right now.

Oh WOW what an adventure your daughter is having! Not to mention the memories that will last a lifetime. How cool that Nick is home so you don't completely suffer from an empty nest. Happy b'day Nick!

Maggie is darling. I know how hard it's been for you with her being over there! All of the things that have happened since she got there, ohmygosh. But her angels are watching experience of a lifetime, lucky girl!
Happy Birthday Nick! What a handsome fella, all grown up!
Hugs to you Deborah.
