Sigh.

Back home in Canada, from our EXCELLENT trip to England and Paris…I’m thoroughly refreshed with broadened horizons. But I still don’t want to be home!

Our trip was so incredible. We experienced so much and saw so much of the world. Our days were filled to the brim of sightseeing, and now that we’re home I just can’t believe that we got all that sightseeing in! We say Versailles, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, spent two full days in London, visited family, went to the beach, hiked around the countryside, visited Stonehenge, the HMS Victory…the list goes on!

I’ll be updating the blog with more stories of our travels, and pictures of course!

It’s good to be back…

I love old pictures! Old pictures, history, facts and fiction, it’s all so exciting to me! And their clothes…their clothes are so fantastic!

I wish we had made it to England before my Granddad passed away, I was looking forward to asking him about his past adventures, his childhood and his experiences during World War II. My Dad is bringing back old pictures of Granddad and Grandma and their family and I hope to get copies of those great pictures. It’s not a replacement to the stories I was hoping to hear Granddad tell, but maybe they’re the next best thing.

When I see pictures like this I always wonder what came next. Where were they? Who was around? How did this scene play out? I imagine the story in my head like a movie.

This picture is of Hubby’s Grandma when she was a little one…kinda looks like she’s up to no good, doesn’t she? I love the lace detailing on the bottom of her skirt…and what is that chubby little hand holding onto?

I found this old picture (a reprint…but still, it was an original at some point…) and I think it’s beautiful!
