Going Home #WordlessWednesday


Breaking the rules

This was our home in 2012. We sold it to move closer to our daughter while she attended university.

This weekend we’re returning to say goodbye to DH’s mom.

A bittersweet journey.

    1. Thanks, Mae. I miss the house and yard (you can just see the edge of our giant Mayday tree which would be in full bloom right now), but not the cleaning! lol

    1. Thank you, Staci. She always had a joke and a smile ready and was the type to welcome strangers (even a shy young teenager-me) into her home. We’ll miss her dearly.

    1. Alberta is under the blush of spring, Jacqui. The poplar just opened with bright lime leaves and the farms I’ve seen are rich and green.
      I took a pic of a CN train- first one I’ve seen in many years 😊
