Over the Weekend

This weekend really did feel like Spring! I had a wonderful weekend soaking it up. The Quail, my stepson and I went out for lunch and then wandered around Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday and the Quail took some fun photos. On Sunday we visited an animal shelter and walked the sweetest pup I have ever met. She is wonderful and we’re thinking about bringing her home! I hope you had a great weekend too.

Taylor, WI Population 513

Hello! After a much-needed break I am back to blogging. I had a great holiday in Wisconsin with my family. These photos are from a road trip we took to Taylor, WI where my Great Uncle Harris and Great Aunt Shirley live. This old farmhouse used to belong to my Great Grandparents, Harriet and Menford. We spent every Easter there when I was little. My Great Grandma Harriet was a sweet, kind and incredible woman who made the most delicious soft rolls and strawberry jam. It was great to get back there–to run down that hill again with my sister and to talk about Grandma Harriet. Family day trips are the best.

*That last photo is my brother holding a photo of my Great Great Grandfather Nels!

Happy Holidays!

After battling a lingering sickness for the past few weeks, I finally felt like myself again over the weekend. The Quail , my stepson and I cooked delicious meals, watched good movies, and went into the city to see all the holiday decorations.  I hope your holiday season is filled with as much warmth, love, and good food.
