My family is vacationing without me. They're heading out today, driving up to Indiana and Illinois. They'll make a stop at a friend's house in GA then continue up the states for our annual family reunion. My stupid stupid summer class is making me unable to go with. I'm sad. I love family vacations.
All growing up Grandma Speciale's house has been one of my favorite places in the world. She has flower garden's (plural) and a big vegetable garden, a huge yard full of soft grass, and a cozy house full of memories as well as new things to discover.
The mulberry tree.
When we were little we'd eat the berries by the handfuls...not even noticing the tiny white bugs that cover them. yum...
Grandma's the day lilly lady of her town. (And many other towns)
p.s. Illinois smells the best.
