Catching up

Hello!  I don't have a home update or other related post to share with you today.  The past 5 days have been pretty busy for me.  I squeezed in a lot of family time, some of which was due to my great grandmother's passing last week at age 94.  Although losing a loved one is never an easy thing, I was touched by everyone's good spirits and sense of togetherness.  For me, it felt like a celebration and remembrance of a life well lived. My meme (as we called her) was originally from the Quebec region of Canada and made a mean creton.  If you don't know what creton is, you're missing out.  Google it and it will sound disgusting, but it's delicious.  I'm hoping to get her recipe from my grandmother so I can share it with you.

Tomorrow I'll be spending the 4th of July with two of the best siblings a girl could ask for (I guess I'm a bit sentimental today).  I hope you can all take the day off to celebrate the grand old U S of A with your family and friends.  Don't work too hard on those red, white, and blue cupcakes or tablescapes!

I have a few projects up my sleeve right now.  The master bathroom is one I'm hoping to make a lot of progress on Thursday and Friday.  The birds are officially gone!
