a tent just for dancing

so we had the honor of doing an event for a living legend last night...the tent you see was put up just for dancing and believe it or not took 3 days....first the multi leveled backyard had to be sub floored to create and even surface...then, the tent had to go up in the pouring rain... nonetheless we had a great time and samuel (once again) captured the event for us...

we spent a part the day at a senior care facility bringing them a bit of holiday cheer! we were blessed to meet so many wonderful and wise residents and even wished catherine a 100th birthday!!!! please take time to ask the elderly their stories and enthusiastically share in their knowledge... they carry in their minds and hearts living history and it is our duty to honor and cherish their years....
