It was wild party time at The Holler! Break out the moonshine and the possum-pie! My daughter is getting married in two weeks and she is after all my first-born, my only daughter, and the first to get married! Here she is at about four.
Her name is Andrea, but for some reason, I started calling her Dre a couple of weeks after she was born. I changed my son’s name too, after he was born, from Matt to Matteo. These are nick-names though. How can you pick a nick-name after-all, for someone before you even meet them??
Here is Dre piloting our raft on a seven-day trip down the Grand Canyon when she was in high school. She was already a black-belt and intensely-committed water polo player at this point.
She and her fiance Sean both just finished graduate school in May and she is working as a bi-lingual therapist in the Bay Area, Sean with the University of California.
Dessert: Fudge Frosted Chocolate Almond Brownies
Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes
Chocolate Chip Cashew Oatmeal Cookies
Scotch Short Bread
We all had a blast at the shower, but I still can’t believe she’s getting married. My mother was there, so there were three generations, which was wonderful.
Life flies by! Make sure you take time to appreciate it.
Cheers and many happy memories to you all!
