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'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
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 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
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
