Back to Reality…

Aug 22, 2011

Today, sum­mer is over as Ans­ley start­ed back to school as a senior. My good­ness did these years pass by fast. I still can­not believe this is her last year in high school. I best enjoy her as much as pos­si­ble this year as I know she will be ready to fly the coup soon. Which brings me to ask this ques­tion… What in the world will Alan and I do with just the two of us at home? We have always had a child in the house as I mar­ried Alan when Ter­ri was 2 years old. I’m just going to put all this way deep in the back of my mind for now and share with you some pho­to col­lages from my trip to Buck­han­non, WV. It was an awe­some vis­it with all the fam­i­ly and I hope we can get togeth­er again next year. I love going up there and see­ing every­one.

This is of the old fam­i­ly home­stead. I love this place and have so many won­der­ful mem­o­ries going there.

All of these pho­tos were tak­en on my aunt and uncle’s prop­er­ty from their gar­den, pears from what is left of the orchard from long ago, old tools my great, great, great uncle used, a black cher­ry wood­pile and oth­er land­scape pho­tos.

And her are some fam­i­ly pho­tos and pho­tos from one of the trips to the Ron Hin­kle Glass Gallery. The quilt shown in the upper right cor­ner is one that my mom pieced togeth­er. My grand­moth­er pieced all the red, white and blue squares togeth­er many years ago. When she passed away and my mom and her broth­er and sis­ter were clean­ing out the house she found the squares. So mom pieced all the squares and brought it up for her cousin and his wife to have machine quilt­ed. Her cousin owns The Stitch­ing House and Sew Much More. It is the most amaz­ing quilt shop I have every been in.

I hope you enjoyed the guest blog­gers I had sched­uled to post while I was gone. I loved read­ing what they post­ed and cer­tain­ly appre­ci­at­ed their help. Tomor­row I have some­thing super awe­some to tell you about that includes a nice trip to Bel­la­gio, Italy in Sep­tem­ber of 2012. All I can say is start pack­ing your bags now! It’s awe­some.
