Maureen became Mrs. Dennis Sorenson in a lovely ceremony at the Historic Landmark Lodge & Resort in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin. Her darling granddaughter Stella was the Petal Girl, and Dennis’s grandson Alexander was the Ring Bearer. Their nuptials were performed by a longtime friend of the bride, Niles Jennett, and the two witnesses were Vickie Jennett, and Dennis’s granddaughter, Haley Werkheiser. In front of God, their families, and friends, they shared self-written vows, during a stunning candlelight ceremony, at the Lake’s (The Great Lake Michigan) edge.
“I believe it is God’s blessing that has united us in friendship. At our tender age, it is a very special and comforting feeling to once again love, and be loved.
I affirm the special bond and unique relationship that exists between us, and promise to keep it always alive.”
It was an extraordinary journey!
The two shall honeymoon in France, and then return to their lovely home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Presently preparing to exhibit at three needlework trade shows this year. The bride has been busy not only preparing and planning their lovely wedding, but also creating several new designs for release in February 2012. In March, she plans to retire from her forty-two years in the medical profession, and focus fully on The Heart’s Content, Inc. now that her heart is truly content!
Autumn has arrived in Wisconsin, and the spectrum of colours has certainly provided once again that wonderful inspiration of design. “French Harvest” rests at my back door, as the celadon and ecru Cinderella French pumpkins are waiting to be stitched and charted. Apart from the traditional orange field pumpkins, these new breeds of harvest provide such a wonderful back drop for my new creations. As Cinderella’s stagecoach was shaped, these delightful specimens of our harvest are a lasting beauty. However with the chilly nights we have experienced already this month, soon they will become soup and bread, and the memories will be in the stitched vision of my “French Harvest” to publish in 2006.
Ahh Spring. Truly my favorite of all seasons. My forest floor is brilliant with color as the Trillium, Wild Geraniums, and my favorite, the violets, carpet the view from each and every window of my home. It is my pleasure to poke in the gardens at the earliest hours of daylight, hours before our offices begins the craze each day. I have made great perennial strides in most beds, and regard all of my bending and stretching as enjoyment to come in the years ahead. Don’t you love the yield that this years efforts afford for years to come!
Once again I am returning to Charleston, and am most anxious to share with you all of my new designs. So much has transpired in just one year. Charleston, such a great city to visit, welcomes our Festival, and we so appreciate your support of our efforts to exhibit a fun experience for you and your stitching friends.
I sincerely thank all of you for your kind regards with the loss of my Dear Mother, and my spine injury. I miss my mother daily. Our blessings are her numerous grande memories. My family shares daily such fond memories of our parents. We are truly blessed. Our ongoing efforts to organize literally thousands of their old photographs has proved to provide a most enjoyable experience for all of my brothers and sisters. Often, such a photograph will run away with an hour of laughs, great stories, and the admittance that Maureen will never grow old. Older, but not old. My man, Rod Stewart says it all. Forever Young. May you always walk with youth in mind and spirit.
