Rhapsody in Blue…

NEEDED: Gown for a formal and a pageant.

FOUND: A fairytale answer on consignment. A little tweaking/touch up, then final fitting and  adjustments.

FINALLY, a moment to sit and rest her feet then….serendipity! Our lightning bug landed and (in spite of her best efforts) was captured in a miraculously picture-perfect moment. If I was a painter, I would convert it to oil.

“Rhapsody in Blue” – it seemed a perfect title. If anyone can think of another, let me know, or (if you are a painter) wouldn’t this be an amazing portrait?

    How beautiful!!!! I can not believe that Neona is 18. She is a beautiful young woman both inside and out. I thank God that she has both you and Roger as her parents and Josiah as her brother. I love you all! Aunt Melissa
