Autumn in Montana


Not us -- one of our daughters. She moved to Montana, loves the country life and is looking for a house. I've been thinking of what kind of card to send her when I saw this design by Angie Blom at Unity Stamps. Our daughter loves coffee and we'll tuck a gift card to Starbucks in here.

This is a photo of our daughter, Amy. It's about 5 years old or so but I can't find a more recent one. They're likely in my phone. She's our youngest and is 36. Wipe the tears from my eyes - how did all the time fly so fast?

Amy has a new beau after her husband died a few years ago. It was so unexpected during heart surgery. We are still and will always miss such a generous, kind and intelligent man.  But after several years, we are so happy she has a new love in her life and wish them the very, very best. 

I couldn't get the hair color right with the color pencils but right now her hair is a little shorter - I think she might like this! I layered three of the sentiments together.
