Home Sweet Home

It feels so good to be home! Although I have been home for 4 days I am looking forward to Monday to get back into some sort of routine. We had a great trip in Connecticut visiting with family and friends and attending the wedding of our good friends son Matt.

When you live away from all of you family it is always tricky trying to fit everyone in and to try to see all of your old friends as well. It was nice that the heat wave of New England mellowed a bit for our visit and gave us a respite from the heat of Tennessee as well.

During our visit I celebrated my birthday....the "BIG" one, if you know what I mean. I am not saying it so you are on your own for that. My girlfriend Eileen hosted a birthday celebration for me with some of our good friends. It was so great to see everyone, I realize how much I miss them all. I did some antiquing with the girls and had a full suitcase of treasures to bring home. There is nothing like old stuff from New England...I am in my glory in an old shop full of junk!

I also got to visit with my best friend Donna from high school. We had not seen each other for 8 years and it felt like I had just seen her yesterday. That is a true friendship.

We stayed with my sister Susan the last 3 days of our trip. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the beach and I finally got to have the lobster I was dying was so good!

 Our boys...
My son Nick on the (L) and his cousins Nate and Chad

...and we can not forget her other "son" Wilson. It is like have another person with you.

Back to whatever normal is tomorrow...
thanks for stopping by.


  1. So glad to hear you had such a wonderful time, but it's always nice to get back home.

  2. Welcome home! It sounds like your trip was full of great times - a big birthday celebration (Happy belated birthday!), reunions with friends and family, and antique shopping too! Can't wait to see some of the treasures you brought home!
