Diamonds! – Women with Age Photography

Photography showcasing the beauty of women with age. Diamonds!!

Some of these women are sisters from church,  some I met at various events, some are aunts.  Some are friends from the neighborhood.  The one on the cover with the black hat is my late mother.

Some are gone all and some are still here to treasure.  God bless them all!

Do you have pictures of your diamonds?

Family Reunion – Honoring our Seniors

 Hart-Sims Family Reunion

We celebrated our family reunion this past weekend as we have consecutively each year since 1976.  This year I wanted to honor our senior family members for their examples and contribution to the family.  God bless them!

Aunt Vivian ldAunt Vivian

The last of the Hart brothers and sisters.
I like to be around her because she reminds me so much of my mother.   For the longest time she would not let me take her picture but yesterday she sat patiently for a portrait.

Glennelle ld Glen

One of Uncle Marvin’s daughters.  When I see her I always think truant officer because she was one way, way back in the day in NC. She has had a career in education since then.

Charlie ld Charlie

Cousin.  Don’t think he has ever missed a family reunion – heart of gold. Always look forward to seeing him and Nannette.  Part of Prince Edward County School closing history.

Aunt Sarah ld Aunt Sarah

Late Uncle Charlie’s other half. Former school teacher/librarian. Moved back to Asheville, NC.  Always kind and pleasant.

Cozette ld Cozette

One of the senior cousins. Raised by Grandma.  We cool as long as we don’t talk about which family reunion anniversary it is. Family has been meeting annually every year since 1976 so the answer should be quite simple. Her way of counting the years makes no sense to me and mine makes no sense to her. It really doesn’t matter.

Janet ld Janet

Uncle Marvin’s other daughter. Glen’s sister. Librarian, history buff.  We have hung out a lot, worked on projects together, and gone places.

How often does your family get together?  Do you have lots of pictures?
