Having an art attack or my 39th anniversary
Fourteen bridesmaids in red pant suits waltzed down the aisle at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Columbus Ohio while hurricane force winds swept snow drifts to heights that we have recently experienced this week in Washington DC. Deja vu. February 13th we celebrate the anniversary and then it spills into the Valentines in continuous celebration.
