I had to go to my aunt’s 90th birthday celebration on Sunday.
It was bittersweet as it was the first family gathering since my mum’s funeral services a few weeks ago.
But it was a beautiful day and I have a loving and caring family.
We were at a place called Owenego in Branford, CT.
Right on the Atlantic Ocean and so old fashioned it was like stepping back into time.
Bright and beautiful hydrangea’s lined the pathway walking in and perennial grew along the shore.
It was a stormy day but the rain stopped earlier in the day so we were able to go out onto the decks and watch the waves in the ocean.
I missed my mum…I wish she could have been there.
