My dear aunt is celebrating a milestone birthday today, July 19, (though I won't tell you which one).
I spent many hours of my childhood at her home and she almost became a second, more patient, mother to me. Sometimes she is very serious but she also has a wonderful sense of humor and a great perspective on life.
This photograph was taken on her wedding day. Isn't movie-star glamorous?
Happy Birthday, my dear aunt!
(I'm not telling you her name to protect her privacy.)
