Well, on Saturday night we attended an auction to benefit Joe's Place at Saint Louis Cellars in Maplewood. My sister-in-law Hannah is the Director of Joe's Place and Josh serves on the Board of Directors, and our church, Crossroads, has a great investment in it because of the Reeves, and we were happy to support it by being a part of the auction. I was just so bummed that the Reeves weren't there, but I took these pictures for you guys, Alyssa. I think I was the only person there with a camera...everyone thought I was some official photog for the evening. I was just having a good time. Saint Louis Cellars is a very photogenic place. And, let's be honest, people love to have their picture taken when the wine is flowing. It was flowing, indeed. I'm pretty sure the goal was to continue getting the bids to increase. I think over $20,000 was raised. Yea for Joe's Place.
that little canister next to the flower held the earnings of one little girl's lemonade stand which she donated to Joe's Place. So cute!
This was the auction item Josh had his eye on all evening. I think he won it. I'm always too distracted at auctions to be interested in the bidding. I just love the socializing and the flowing wine.
