  1. Darn it! If only I lived closer & not all the way in Chicago!!!! LOL! Hope the party is lots of fun & the auction is a huge success. I wish I could’ve seen everything in person. The pictures you had posted previously were amazing. You and your family put so much heart, soul & hard work into all of it.
