This photo was taken the day Robes entered the MTC (he served in the Brussels Belgium Mission). Twenty years later to the day on September 28th he died from brain cancer. Today is the anniversary of that sad day. I miss him every day. I especially miss seeing him with Kim, Ian, Jamel and Adrienne. I even miss him making fun of me. #familiesareforever #pattonmemories #imademydress #notsurewhattohashtagaboutmyhair
My YW presidency meeting got over too late to get to the store to buy Red Vines to eat in honor of Robes today; he loved them. Good thing I had an opened semi-stale bag tucked away. Best before 05/10/15. #missyoubigbrother #pattonmemories
The last thing I need is a treat but the peaches were finally ripe and it's been a sad day. So hello peach cobbler. Added note: it's delicious as usual. Recipe from the Better Homes & Garden red/white checked recipe book. #stillgriefeating #ilovePyrex
I love the Brimfield Fair. I don't love the traffic (read: horrific). I met up with friends in Lunenburg and it should have taken us less than an hour to get there and it took three hours. But once we got there, it was great (hot, but great). I never leave Brimfield empty handed (that pink Pyrex bowl is now mine).
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.
