we had a wonderful visit. i'll try to give you a rundown of what we did.
a good bit of hanging out.
enjoyed the autumn colors
saw family we love and miss
painted finger nails. the moment we arrived she asked about it. and her auntie complied. cause that's what aunties are for.
had our favorite pizza
we went to Duluth. to Lake Superior. jason and i haven't been in years and we miss it. it was so good to be there again.
i want to decorate a room with this color scheme
jason and samuel went downtown
and we had a family photo shoot. mindy rocks and i'm so glad she does this for us. i had such a hard time choosing what to share with you all. there were so many good ones.
oh- and we played at grandma's
things back home keep changing. malls are torn down and roads are redirected. past the spot where i got my first ticket. new bridges and concrete. makes a girl feel a little old.
we drove by the home i lived in from 5th grade on. an unknown family makes their memories there daily and i drove by. pondered all of mine.
there is much to ponder these days- thinking about home and past, family and friendships. it is always so good to see people- hard to come home. but it was good to be home too. good to say hello to my own bed and cook in my kitchen.
just pulled my great grandmother's oatmeal cake from the oven and have chicken broth simmering on the stove. relishing this cloudy day and maybe biting off more than i can chew. we'll see.
my thoughts are muddy today. thanks for sticking with me, friends. i'll be back soon.
