Aunt Lilly

Please forgive me for not blogging in forever! I have not wanted to post until I could write something about this amazing woman...



And thought it would be fun to share a little personal story about her..
Many years ago our rehearsal dinner was at her house and she used these pinatas adorned with strands of pearls and yards of tulle as centerpieces.

That very same day her house was shot for this fun book...
The next Christmas she sent us the book and we opened it to see this written on the first page.
and this on the second...

This book makes me smile every time I look at it.  It is the best "regift" ever.
I snapped this photo of her front door a few weeks ago.  I am sad that I will probably never walk through that door again.
but I am thankful for all of the times that I did and I know that she will continue to inspire me to live life more passionately.

What a lovely tribute to a very lovely woman! You are so blessed to have had Lilly as your aunt! I can only imagine the treasured memories you must have. From what I have read about her, Lilly was an amazing, kind, thoughtful and generous woman with an effervescent personality and a delightfully whimsical sense of humor. She celebrated life and truly lived every day to its fullest. She is such an inspiration to me! My deepest condolences for your loss… Heaven is lucky to have a new angel… she is probably painting it pink and green this very moment!

XOXO,
The Glam Pad

I had no idea..... however, it is now readily apparent that amazing style and grace run in the family. What a special tribute and wonderful memories which will live on...

Your Aunt is way cooler than my aunt!! Style sure runs in your family!! Love, love, love the pictures you shared. And getting a new Lilly dress every spring when I was a kid was such a big and exciting deal!! Such a great post and tribute to your aunt!!
