I’m still playing catch-up for the winter season and some of the springtime.Jingling their bells again for their annual Holiday Tea in the library at The Little Nell were that group of ladies including Joy Bancroft, Teran Davis, Pamela Levy Crandall, Lita Heller and Cheryl McArthur. It’s a time for Aspenites and second-home Aspenites to get together and catch up on the year before.Connie Baxter Marlow sent me a photo and catch-up news about her family. Connie was in town this month to hold a bridal shower for her and David Marlow’s daughter Consi, who will marry John Chmielewski, a local graphic designer on June 3 in Aspen. Alison Marlow is in Miami working as a private investigator and massage therapist and living with Ozzie Mena, who is pursuing a career as a personal trainer. Jonny Marlow is finishing his first year at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles, as is his good friend Ben Stranahan. Connie and Andrew Cameron Bailey are filmmakers, photographers and writers and have settled in Sedona, Ariz., where they have created a unique hostelry, Page Springs Bed and Breakfast. The two homes and barn with gallery and library sit on eight acres surrounded by national forest in peaceful Page Springs in Sedona’s wine country. The B&B is the permanent home of their photography exhibit titled “Rhythms of Creation: Impressions of Indigenous Peoples of the World.” They offer exclusive wine-country packages. Connie, Andrew (who is from Australia) and the B&B recently received a nice write-up in the Sedona newspaper.
