Savannah in Kigali, Rwanda - Link To Website & Blog - Amazing Generous Young Woman

Ok, so I went to this great wedding reception last night……

Beautifully done…outdoors, lights, white linens, good food….her father’s band, with a substitute for dad…..catered, wait staff….I love this sort of thing and it was done well….

The parents, Ronnie and Sonya, have been friends of mine for, oh, wow….32 years! Kasie is the gorgeous and unique bride…and has met and married a perfect match for her, Charlie….they are the perfect example of just “cool”. They live in Atlanta….

Ronnie and Sonya are fabulous people…….Back in our young days, we did the club scenes, and party’s together…Then, we all started having kids, and the party’s slowed a bit…..They have stayed married, and apparently still in love for all these years…They started a business when the kids were young. It and they, struggled a bit over the years……Ronnie is creative and versatile……and neither were afraid of hard work…..the business grew and changed, and now affords them a really nice living, allowing a lot of the perks that go with it…..

But what these two really accomplished were these two daughters, and one son. Shawn, the Atlanta artist, Kasie, and her sister Savannah…..Kasie’s story, I’ll tell at another time….this, is Savannah’s story…

Savannah is the baby….she was the most willful child we’d ever come across……Ronnie and Sonya were hilarious to watch as this absolutely gorgeous little angel would struggle at two to dress herself…..you better not help her…..to do so would start a loud and drawn out crying jag….we just let her do it herself…it was just better that way….Ok, so sometimes it was a Tee shirt with a tutu and mismatched socks…you just didn’t want to go there…..yes, you look beautiful Savannah!!!!

Independent….she was the word…….Ok, now Savannah is 24, so gorgeous you don’t want to stop looking at her, and so smart you could talk to her for hours….She’s had some struggles with her health which was scary, and caused great concern, but her stubborn nature and independence reigned….she never lets anything stop her….

I moved away from Tupelo, in 1988, to Atlanta, when the kids were small, so I missed so much of their lives…..which I regret …I think it would have been amazing to watch them grow and change,….but let me show you how she turned out…..I have her website linked (hopefully) below this writing…..I’m also going to put it on my profile page….and I encourage you to have a look….

She lives and works in Kigali, Rwanda…The website is new…….she’s still learning the ins and outs of it…but I think you will enjoy seeing what this very loving, beautiful, generous young woman is doing with her life……….I am really proud to be a little bit in her life…..and Savannah….if you ever read this….I love you and am so proud of you……
