About Me

With my favorite girl in the whole world!

2012   Me and Russ
Our 30 Year Anniversary Video

They say there's no such thing as "the good old days"  
- but these days were pretty good ones!


Just a Note About Me...

At six, I sewed my first dress.
It was a sadly pathetic, lavender, double-knit simple little thing which lies folded in a cedar chest. My grandma, Charlotte Karolyi, taught me to sew at her sewing machine which had a knee peddle (which at six years old, was a foot peddle for me.) And from that time forward I sewed my clothes.

At seventeen, I was so excited to go to my Junior prom. "Whew-hoo-wow!" I actually had a real date and everything!
And for whatever reason, once again, the color of the dress was lavender! This time, embellished with hand-sewn lavender flowers across the bodice. That first date on April 4, 1981 was true love & almost 30 years later we are still married. I think it was true love. . . or did he just love me for my dress? (And my super-cool hairdo?)   
. . . And I am still wearing lavender - whenever.

Here we are a few years ago in New Orleans (one of my favorite travel spots).  

Day one in Spain with Toledo in the background.

Russ is good to me and proves it repeatedly. For our 29 year anniversary he made my dreams come true....  ¡España!
ThanX Russ!

Now ... for a girl. 
(and, the boys have a cousin)

It took just a short while for them to fall in love with her.
