On Saturday, July 23, we hosted an amazing day-long mini session~ in memory of a beautiful little girl named Ava. Her parents started a website called Ava’s Tea Party which asks that people hold a tea party in the summer to celebrate life- to celebrate all things beautiful and lovely, and to experience those sweet rights of passage that Ava was not able to experience.
Our charity of choice was Mommy’s Light Lives on Fund. Mommy’s Light is an amazing organization that helps bereaved children up to age 18 celebrate the special traditions they once experienced with their mothers. Mommy’s Light is near and dear to my heart, as my sister and I have volunteered with them since 2003 when we lost our own mom to cancer.
Ava’s Tea Party was held on a super hot (~100 degrees!) day in Ambler, and was made possible by several amazing sponsors and volunteers.
