Today the whole family gathered for a little memorial service for my great aunt Mernie who passed away in September. She was just an amazing woman. She always emphasized to me how happy she was to keep up with our adventures via my blog, so much so that each time I have blogged these pasts months I think about how she'll never read my newest post as I publish it.
We all gathered at my grandma's house and it was so fun and strange to have a whole new generation of "kids" eating in the kitchen while the grown ups sat in the dining room.
