Walk Down Memory Lane

In November I flew home to Pennsylvania with my son Matthew to help my mother recover from open heart surgery. While we were there I was able to share some childhood memories with Matthew - like walking down the wooded lane to the house. He sat in the tree where I escaped to read books as a child, and he jumped in piles of leaves from the very same tree. For me this trip was as much about connecting with him as it was about helping my mother. I am grateful for the family time we shared.

I made this layout using the November sketch by Di Hickman which was also her 1000th blog post. Isn't that wild? Congrats on all your hard work, Di - you are an inspiration to so many! Happy birthday wishes, too!

The coolest thing on this layout for me (besides the fun photo ♥ ) is the tree border cut with my new QuicKutz Silhouette. Click the photo for a closer look. Details for this layout are here.
