Thank you Kristin Davis

  • Orphaned Baby Elephants
    So nice to see that the babies finally have a prominent name attached to their plight. Please click the link (above) to view a page from the orphanage and at the bottom of the page is a link to a wonderful video Kristin made at the orphanage.

From Dame Daphne Sheldrick:

  • “Every person that buys ivory has killed an elephant and its dependent young and has caused immeasurable sorrow and suffering to many others.” Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick MBE, MBS


  • ... from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where orphaned baby elephants are rescued.

Watercolors from the Nursery

  • Each month I receive a lovely watercolor depicting a scene from the nursery. We have printed many of them out and placed them in frames to decorate our home.


  • Sammy loved kittens, tutus & ballerinas. But mostly he loved us. He died a peaceful death as an old man and left us with broken hearts.

Our Old Man

  • Baby Bear died a peaceful death just before Christmas 2009. He was almost 17. Bear was a warrior. A brilliant feline. A blessing to our lives.

Hi Amy... oooh Happy Anniversary to you and Desi! What a beautiful couple you were and are! You look as young today as you did when you were married... I love the photo of your daddy dancing with Lucy... and your dress is just stunning! (I have a closet full of things that have "shrunk" over the years too, tee hee hee!) true about looking back and wondering where the years went...and wanting that "just one more dance" with our loved ones... but the love is still there and always will be... I hope you have a beautiful celebration of your love for each other today and always... xoxo Julie Marie

Thank you Julie Marie. Love you ~ Amy


Oh Amy, I will say it again (as I did on facebook) I love the pictures of you and Desi. So beautiful! When my love and I married 6 years ago the most beautiful thing was seeing my parents and Sally and Jim all sitting together, shoulder to shoulder, as we stood in front of them taking our vows. It was glorious! Happy Anniversary to both of us and the loves of our lives!!

Amy Arnaz

Thank you Donna~ It meant the world to me, too, to have our parents at our wedding. Happy Anniversary to you too! xoxo Amy

Oh Amy!
I'm sorry I am so late catching up on everything! I've just been so busy with work and all.
But I had to comment! LOVE THIS! How cute you guys look. And yes, it's hard to believe that so many our our beloved family members who celebrated our wondrous day with us are now gone. But they are all together in Heaven - whooping it up!
What a beautiful post!
Have a wonderful week my friend.

Long skirts

My little mother Libby

  • Hi Mom! I hope you have somehow figured out how to read my blog. I have a new, bionic knee that should last till I'm 80. Wish you were here so we could share everything with you. Miss you lots.... Wish you would have lived longer so you could see your beautiful granddaughters all grown up.
