Because I couldn't sleep (I swear that has never happened before) I was able to take pictures in this beautiful morning light.
My Aunt Lori is such an incredible person. She travelled across the country to see my play, "Into the Woods". She has been such an encouragement to me and has provided so many opportunities for me. She even paid the bill so I could get braces. She also altered a prom dress from the 50's for me while she was here (which I will show you someday soon!). She is so selfless and one of my closest friends.
I only have two regrets. One, I wasn't even able to enjoy the party due to a heavy rehearsal schedule. And, two, I painted the sign on pages from an english book. I really wanted to rip into a french one, but I also didn't want to destroy any rare editions. So "Bon Anniversaire, Lori!" was actually painted on a story about Texas.
I hope you had a lovely birthday, Aunt Lori! We love you!
