Saturday night we went to a fundraising gala event for Phoenix House (a rehabilitation inhouse program for addicts, both children and adults) with facilities all over the United States. There is one near our home here in central Florida and my son---the one getting married this Saturday--- bought two tables and invited our entire family and a few of his friends to go with he and his fiance'. It was a very fancy event and Kara Dio Guardi ( singer, song writer and American Idol judge!!!) was the featured guest! It was awesome! Kara is so adorable, so funny, so petite, so down to earth, so gracious, and an amazing singer---such a tiny person with a HUGE voice! She sang two songs---amazing---and spent tons of time socializing and signing autographs. So differant than I expected. Phoenix House is her passion and she is raising money to put music labs/studios in the facilities for the clients to find themselves through music. If you can't tell, I was impressed and so thankful for her giving spirit!
Sunday afternoon I went to a Bridal Shower for my VERY soon to be daughter-in-law (did I say the wedding is THIS Saturday!!! :-) ?) I made today's card for her! Also gave her the silver charm bracelet that I made with all the bridesmaid's names on it. She loved it!
