Snapshots from our week:

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.
