30 Years Ago...

On Wednesday, January 24th, 1979, a little girl was born... ME!!!

My mom used to tell me the following story every year and today was no different as she called to say, "Exactly 30 years ago at this time, I was getting ready to leave for the hospital. Last night your dad and I finished wallpapering your room around midnight. Then I had popcorn. I woke up to the start of labor. There was a lot of snow on the ground and I told your father I thought he should stay home from school. He snowblowed the driveway and we headed to the hospital around 10am. You were born at 2:18pm"... she always has much more to say than that, but I'll spare you - lol.

Abby ~ Corpus Christi, TX 01.03.09

I had the privilege of covering Abby's Debutante party to bring in the New Year. She had three dresses she wore throughout the evening. First was the gown her mother wore for her own party. We definitely took pictures in this fabulous number. Next, Abby put on the gown to greet her guests in... stunning. Then there was the show stopping black number she came out in later in the night. Loved them all!! Abby's AMAZING debutante party was at the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi, TX. The location was gorgeous, the lighting was amazing, the delicious food, the music - WOW!! There was a very talented harpist that played during the cocktail hour. Then the band Sound Connection, from Washington DC took the party over. What a night! Congratulations Abby!! I hope you had a great time at your party. I know I did. Thanks for everything!
