Today’s post: And Babies make Four

On September 16, 1955, Dom and Mary’s first son ( my husband) Michael arrived.   Since Mary was 30 when they married, they wasted no time completing their family with their second son, David, born in August of 1956.

Two children born in such a short term ( 13 months) are often known as “Italian twins”.

Mary would later tell me that being pregnant for most of that two year span, would cause some people ,who had only seen her occasionally, to stop and ask her “When are you going to have that baby?!”

Dom, the oldest of a 6 siblings, took easily to parenting.  He would spend the rest of his life being an easy going, loving, supportive , proud father.

Mary had a little less patience:)  But she too, gave her all to being a “boy mom”.  Together they shared the love and value of family that would be the basis for their lives.

Trips to the local  Erie Peninsula were a favorite outing.

They eventually moved into their small, modest home on a corner lot. There they celebrated birthdays, holidays, graduations, anniversaries and and every day life, sitting down together for a home cooked meal every night and pasta and sauce on Sundays.

The Sementelli Home.

There house was always full of family, friends and neighbors coming by for coffee, drinks, or an intense game of cards.

On most warm weather nights you’d find them sitting outside with any number of guests just “shooting the breeze”.  If the coffee pot was on, company was sure to follow.

They would remain in that same house for 35 years.

A sample of the DomLovesMary font in action.

The font family features three different versions of the alphabet, a set of “Add Ons” that will include words like “and, to, of, for, at, etc…in addition to 124 flourishes to be added to either the upper or lower case so you can create your own custom look!

It will be released on myfonts.com on my Correspondence Ink foundry page any day now. Just waiting for it to go “live”!
