Whew! I Need a Breather!

Dear Ellen,

So many good things and so much great fun in the last few weeks.  I’ve hit the point where all I want is a weekend without any plans.  I guess that will come one day — and then I’ll miss all the activity.

dsc04231.JPGIt was so wonderful to have you, Wilson and Karen join us at the engagement party.  Allen was very grateful too.  He and Libby are so happy together.  Planning for the fall wedding will start soon.

That’s it for now…I’m so behind in so much I just can’t take more time!

Love, Jan
