Photobooth Friday — No. 27

Snapshots from our week:

| highlights |

I always love sleeping in front of the fire. If we accomplished nothing else in our trip back home, Ryan + I both decided it was worth the four hours in the car just to fall asleep to that crackling sound. But it was also lovely to see much of my family including my darling niece + nephew, and to celebrate my birthday with them. We had a yummy pumpkin spice cake that my Mom invented and Birch Bark ice cream from the Sandwich Creamery — a definite favourite.

My Great Uncle found my Grandparents’ wedding invitation recently and sent it to my Mom! That’s it in the second to last photo. They were married in 1947. I think I inherited her missing upper lip, ha! I love my parents’ house because it is sort of a museum of my family history. There are so many bits and pieces not only from my childhood, but also from my parents’, their parents’, and everything in between. I guess being a pack-rat must be genetic.

      I WILL SEE YOU SOON! (Ryan can’t keep secrets from me, ha!) I’m so glad since I felt like we didn’t get to spend a lot of time together last visit. Can’t wait!

    I look forward to your Photobooth Friday posts so much now 🙂 These pictures might be my favorite yet! The ones of you kissing your kitty, and the one of your kitty on her(?) own are particularly beautiful. The one next to your cat (of the light fixture) is so interesting. I can’t stop looking at it! It’s gorgeous. And how fun is looking through old family photo albums? I could spend hours upon hours looking through old photos of my parents and grandparents.

    Happy early birthday! Hope you’re having a lovely Friday 🙂

      Yay, thank you, Natasha! I look forward to making this post every week, too. It forces me to immortalize little moments and look at things under a microscope instead of just letting my eyes gaze right past them.

      Our kitties are both boys, Atlas is the one with the white face, and Hugo is the one I’m kissing here (he’s such a baby!). I wonder if my future grandchildren will stumble upon these images of me in 50 years!
