That's what was on the license plate of the little aqua blue convertible Mercedes my auntie Gloria drove for as far back as my memory goes. She was born Gloria Sharlene Waldron but became known as Allison once she began her career in modeling as a young mother of two. Aqua was such a perfect color too...it matched her fabulous blue eyes. I think that color will always remind me of her...my sweet spirited, stunningly beautiful, always gracious auntie. We lost her last week, to a heart attack, and I am heartbroken.
I hope you (my small handful of readers) won't mind if I sprinkle in posts about her now and then between pictures of the boys as I work through my grief and do my best to celebrate her life. She was so special to me, and these thoughts of her just keep swimming around in my head...around and around and around. They need to come out.
I have been looking through pictures of her for days now and have come across so many darling photos. This is the photo Cousin Wendy sent to me that we're going to use at her memorial service on Friday.

We didn't go anywhere for Memorial Day weekend. We just stayed put. On Saturday morning we were planning to do a re-do of Mother's Day breakfast but ended up at IHOP instead with the intention of going somewhere nearby for pony rides for the boys. Instead we found ourselves looking for a last minute replacement for our kitchen sink. More kitchen drama. We're still a little ways away from a functioning kitchen.
