~Monday, Monday~


~Bridget in the movie~"Iron Jawed Angels"~
~My maid of honor & sister, Bridget, on my wedding day~ I love this picture of us.

~Monday,Monday, wish in heart in was Sunday~
~Drinking buttermilk all the week.~
~Whiskey on a Sunday.~
~That was a little Irish "ditty" that my dad used to sing.~It seems very appropriate for today. On this first Monday of "Springing forward". I was very much asleep & having a nice dream when 6:00a.m. came this morning.~
~It is hard to believe that just last Monday it was all a winter wonderland & we had three snow days.~And, this weekend, we enjoyed the loveliness of spring weather.~
Today is my sister Bridget's 50th birthday. Yesterday she had a wonderful celebration. Her house was filled to the brim with loving friends & family.I could not help but look around and feel so very proud of just how loved my big sister is. But, not at all surprised. Bridget or her full name~Anna Bridget Kathleen Bernadette Gethins Leach~ for real, that is her full name. Anyway, she is one of those people who light up the room with her spirit. A true lover of life, she is an actress and a writer. She is always working on a project.
~Yesterday, her home was wall to wall with wonderful people, mostly theatre folks and artists. Everyone brought yummy food, they also brought their, love & laughter. It was a day to treasure.
~Happy Birthday Sister~
you & Barbie ROCK !
love~Amy~

Happy Birthday, Bridget!!

At first glance, I thought your post was that you had darkened your hair. You gals strongly resemble each other. Enjoy another few days of this sunshine, The Old Dominion is supposed to get rain this week. Take care, Susan
