Back from a wonderful trip

We went to Kentucky to do research on my father's family and it was great! The research was very rewarding, but the best was seeing relatives for the first time in forever. Everyone was great and then my aunt's grandson started bringing out things she left. It was incredible and we didn't have time to get through it all. Now it should be easy to visit again.
September challenges are out and this is to journal about what was special this summer.

  1. What an impressive frame that is around your sepia photo. It makes it an immediate focal point and the yellow patch accentuates it.

    I can imagine how interesting it must have been for you to browse through your aunt´s belongings and find out more of your family history. And how lucky you are that she kept so much of it to pass on.

  2. I'm glad that you had a great time on your visit with your relatives and that you had the opportunity to see them after so many years! I agree with Helen, the frame on your layout really draws the eye right to the photo. I really like that your page includes journaling about your trip, bring the present and the past together. Wonderful addition to your heritage book! :)
