Congratulations Twinkle & Ed!!!

As many of you know our lovely “Twinkle” Marie was married on Saturday! Here is the message she posted on Facebook:

“Dreams do come true!! Thank you to everyone who shared in our celebration, whether you were with us in person or sent love from afar, we deeply appreciate your love and support. After our honeymoon we will post more pictures of our wedding weekend!!”

Twinkle & Ed we wish you every good blessing on your life together!

A new grandson

Yesterday, we spent 15 hours in the hospital for the labor and welcome of Cayson Edward Spaulding. Such a blessing is this family of ours. More family celebrations and joys to come in the next few weeks! This will be a summer (and a year) for the record books of our Family Tree! <3

UUA GA 2019

This year’s UUA General Assembly in Spokane, Washington was beautiful and dramatic and sweet and socratic – as is the case with many GA’s. The moments I will share now are from The Red Tent Gretchen and I hosted at the UU Women and Religion and Women’s Federation area, reunions with longtime friends and colleagues, and budding friendships. Of note as well, the Church of the Larger Fellowship celebrated its 75th during GA – lots of fun and heart-warming program! There were UUSCM meet-ups. And, I hosted a UU Talks Poster Session for congregations and groups to learn about this innovative fundraising, outreach and publicity program. There is more to say about GA – there often is. When I process it, I will write again. In love and gratitude, ~ Twinkle.
