Lancaster, PA

Good morning,

Unfortunately, I left my camera at my aunt’s house last night, so you’ll have to wait for Ocean City, New Jersey pictures for a while.  This morning I am going to Lancaster Pennsylvania with my aunts.  I am so excited to go see the beautiful country side.  I wonder if I’ll feel like I’ve traveled back through time, as  Amish people drive by in horse-drawn buggies.  I will be snapping away, so be looking for pictures.

I hope you had a good weekend full of laughter and good conversation.

xoxo,

Katie

Mother’s Day Recap

Hi guys,

Sorry for my absence lately.  Things have gotten really busy around here, and it has been difficult to find the time to get on the interwebs.

As most of you know, Brendan and I spent Mother’s Day with my sweet Aunt Cindy, and her family at Longwood Garden, an amazing Eden surrounded by homes and farm land in Pennsylvania.

The whole time we were there I kept on thinking of this Emily Dickinson poem

TWO butterflies went out at noon

And waltzed above a stream,

Then stepped straight through the firmament,

My cute cousins...They constantly ran ahead of us.And rested on a beam; And then together bore away, Upon a shining sea,—

Though never yet, in any port, Their coming mentioned be.   

If spoken by the distant bird, If met in ether sea, By frigate or by merchantman, Report was not to me.

Cacti!We really did have the best time.  What did you do with your families yesterday?

Here's my east coast fam. They're great.

That’s all for now.

xoxo,

Katie

TWO butterflies went out at noon
And waltzed above a stream,
Then stepped straight through the firmament
And rested on a beam;
And then together bore away         5
Upon a shining sea,—
Though never yet, in any port,
Their coming mentioned be.
If spoken by the distant bird,
If met in ether sea         10
By frigate or by merchantman,
Report was not to me.
