The date on my last post was almost a year ago. It's not that I've stopped sharing photos. It's just that I tend to post them all on my main blog, The View From Here. So I've decided to consolidate. I'm not going to take this blog down, because there are some wonderful memories recorded here. Feel free to come back as often as you like to wander among the archives. I'm sure I will. But when you want to see the latest, I hope you'll join me here. Thanks!

Love, Jeanne

Sarah's Bridal Portraits

This is my beautiful daughter-in-law. I took these pictures at Highland Park Methodist Church on SMU Campus.

In the next three shots, she's wearing her mother's wedding dress.

As lovely as she is, her heart is even lovelier. What a gift she is to Luke and our family.

Abraham Lincoln's Home in Springfield May 29

On our way to a wedding in the Chicago area, we stopped to tour Lincoln's home in Springfield, IL. This is his writing desk.
Mary Todd Lincoln's bed and one of her dresses. The wallpaper is the original pattern.
Toys in the boys' room. The Lincolns had four sons, but only one lived into adulthood.
Their kitchen.

The loo. So, this is how important politicians live. Nice to know.
The balcony railing is also original. Some of the ornamentation was broken off by the rambunctious boys.
After touring the house we walked into downtown Springfield. A church door.
Another church door.
Building across the street from the outdoor table where we ate lunch.
Also across the street.
My lunch. Chicken teriyaki salad with mango salsa. Yummy.
We passed the state capitol building on our way back to the car. Charming downtown area. And Lincoln's home is definitely worth seeing if you're ever in the Springfield area.
