I'm so sorry. What a lovely smile.

Kate said...

H - i love this picture of her, and i'm seeing a bit of you in it!

Heather said...

It's funny, because people think I look like my mom too (and by extension, my grandmother), and I really don't. I think the resemblance comes from certain mannerisms - we all do that kind of shy chin tuck when having our picture taken. I'll admit that the smile is similar, though.

Hi Heather - Sorry about Aldena. I have several photos of my Grandma K. very much like this. She's gone, too. :(

Are you still blogging? I just discovered your blog with Kate - I've been slogging through the blogs, looking for something new to follow (I regularly check-in at Boho Girl and Ink on My Fingers) and your smart, funny stuff is the only thing that's caught my attention. :)

Also, I was skimming your "100 Things" about you, and I think we might have kinship. I'm a 41-year-old freelance illustrator and writer (inexplicably procrastinating on the projects that I love) - currently unemployed after 15 years of administrative jobs at artsy, spiritual, or health-related non-profits.

I live in St. Paul, Minnesota with my cat, Spice, and take the bus once a month to see my boyfriend in Madison, Wisconsin. He comes here more often, god bless 'im. I spend a lot of time at the coffeehouse across the street - especially now that I'm job-searching again...yikes.

Anyway, let me know if you'll be "blogging" here or somewhere else - I'd like to read it and maybe write you a note now and then.

Peace! - Erika Rae

Hey Erika!

Well, we don't blog a lot anymore, but once in a while I get inspired. Life gets in the way sometimes! Do you have a blog yourself? How did you find us?
