Julie’s Senior Picture!

Julie’s senior picture was taken just the other day with her mom’s vintage store as the backdrop. Julie, a fan of vintage clothes, was voted “best dressed” in her senior class at Barrington High School. (That’s a secret.) This fall she’s off to The University of Illinois to major in Environmental Science.

Happy Birthday Billy!

Billy turns 17, today, March 23rd. How did I get this shot already, on March 22nd? ….. When Billy was little he would fuss and fuss all day long because he just couldn’t wait for dinner to open his presents. Eventually his birthday presents came to be opened at breakfast. But this year, on the year that he turns 17, we took all of the anxiety away and we just celebrated a whole day early. Billy’s best present? XBOX 360. (Billy is one of the best things that ever happened to me, so we’ll be celebrating all day. And yes, I’ll make another cake tomorrow!)
