I'm starting to make some decisions (gray shaker cabinets? convection oven? stainless steel countertops?) and am really excited.  Ian ripped up the checkerboard linoleum floor so there's no turning back now!!!  #epupdatesherkitchen #epcondo2018

Madi Knight's memorial

Madi's memorial service tonight was beautiful.  A choir of young women sang "Peace in Christ" that was unbelievable.  I felt honored to hear about her life and what an amazing girl she was. #cambridgestakefriendsareforever #nobeehiveshoulddieofabraintumor

I had Mary Martha take a photo of Ian and I before he leaves tomorrow.  It's been so great having him here and being able to spend ten days together.  It's been a gift.  #ilovebeinganaunt #thiskidmademeanaunt #pattonmemories #mesoshort

My closet: before during and after

Ian re-did the shelving in my bedroom closet.  I'm crazy about it!  Why didn't I do this 12 years ago?!? #iantotherescue #ihavetoomanyclothesstill

I'm *finally* feeling better

I planned to write a post about how it sucks being single+sick but honestly the worst thing is trying to not pee every time I cough.  #epeeeeeeeeee #keepingitreal #epcondo2018 Photo cred: Ian Patton

My handyman

I have loved having Ian here.  I don't think we'd seen each other in over five years (that's too long!).  He's driven me to work the last two days, is great company, has carried all the take-out in and we're starting some condo projects (photos coming soon).  I love being an aunt.  #pattonmemories


I'm trying to not be embarrassed that my nephew went and bought some veggies.  #worsthostess #heyivebeensickwithnoappetite #comevisit #iprovidethePepsi

It bears repeating: if there is a parking spot by Quebrada Bakery, it's meant to be.  #chocolatecroissantforbreakfast #workingonmyappetite

TBT: returning from Montreal

I am crossing Lake Champlain with Ian on our way back from Montreal when he was about 6.  I was hoping to take Ian to Quebec City this week (neither of us have been there) but I was too sick to travel that far.  Plus we would have needed a wig and an eye patch to recreate this photo.  #pattonmemories #thiskidmademeanaunt
