Shortly after getting a job at the Fincastle Library, I met a wonderful family. They home school the kids so they are library regulars. It wasn't until a few years later I discovered we were cousins. Our great grandmother's were sisters. My side of the family went to California from Des Moines, Iowa. Her family left Iowa and moved to New York.
We both ended up in Botetourt County. Can you imagine??? My father wrote a genealogy and would have been so fascinated. I wish he were here to meet them.
Julia, one of my young cousins, sent us a Valentine's Day card that she made herself.
Isn't that the sweetest thing?
So, of course I had to make her one, too.
I love that she thought of us and sent us a card. People who make cards to send understand the time and thought that goes into making one. So I know she will appreciate the one I sent back.
I need to finish the quilt I have been working on in the craft room to make room for some serious card making. If we start sending cards between the two families, this means I have to ramp up my card making. Julia is one of 10 children!
