Beautiful Summer Sun Setting

Annual Trip to Illinois

Tomorrow we are heading out on our annual trip to Illinois. The wonderful midwest. About 30 degrees cooler there. We are really looking forward to getting out of the heat, however we will miss our family. Now that the home renovations are about 99% complete we are hoping for visitors this summer. This will be my first summer back since losing mom. I know it will be different, however I have always felt close to my parents while there. They truly feel as if they are around me, just like the song, "I'm already there, take a look around......They are both with me always. The home renovation began over 4 years ago, and now we can actually have somewhat of a vacation in our little 1920 farmhouse. It's been a journey well worth all the work. We are proud of all we have done. I will attempt to update my new blog daily, if only with a picture of the day, that was actually Aprils idea. So I will give it a try. This will help me keep connected to my family.
Our summer begins.......I love this time.
