I spent hours last week ordering a large print of each and every child and adult who is released for our show during the 5Th Anniversary Celebration for Soulumination. It was a task that brought back incredible memories of so many amazing people. The total count of new photos for our collection will be right at 100 and seeing those faces is really something that goes to the heart of humanity. Some of our treasure friends are living and its so wonderful to know we have time to enjoy them, but many have died and that loss weighs heavily. It was great to have a chance to escape to our cabin for some quiet solitude and to welcome the New Year quietly.

Moonphoto is printing all the photos and Annie's Art and Frame will be handling the mounting. Both of these businesses have been incredible supporters of Soulumination and I can't thank them enough for the quality of their work and their dedication to our project. We sadly say goodbye to long time friends John and Emily at Wallingford Photo. They are closing their doors after years of printing for my business and for Soulumination. They are good and honest people who served their clients well and they will be missed in the photo industry.

Jodi Rosen is heading to Seattle Children's again today. Jodi has been an incredibly reliable source for families and we are delighted to have her and all our wonderful shooters helping us provide beautiful images for each and every family who inquires.

We are so thankful for our supporters who make our work possible. Heartfelt thanks to each and every person who has sent donations, volunteered or given of their products so that Soulumination can move forward.

I am attaching the invitation to the celebration and reminding you that after today you can view photos of Soul children if you happen to be visiting the governor's office in Olympia. Kari and Kat will be hanging the show today. In love and peace, Lynette
