a lovely week

my parents' truck just backed out of our driveway—ben and i standing and waving as they left for minnesota after spending nearly a week with us in ann arbor. maybe it’s because i miss them, because it's been a hard year, or because nothing seemed to go as planned over the last 6 days, but it just felt like they left too soon. i needed them for one more week, or maybe two.

on thursday morning my mom put the pumpkin pie in the oven and as i was setting the timer for 40 minutes a hug spark shot out of the back of the oven. the fuse blew and the control panel was fried. one hectic trip to sears on black friday and a new oven later, we were finally able to have a proper thanksgiving on sunday night. it was worth the wait.

i hope you had a wonderful weekend and ate lots of leftovers! stay tuned. i have holiday gift ideas coming all week. . . and next.

  1. oh no! i'm sorry to hear about your oven mishap on thanksgiving! i hope you enjoyed your time with your family.

  2. Awww! I am so glad that they were able to come!

  3. thanks caroline and carrie! it was a wonderful week with my parents. the oven explosion was almost comical - of course it happened on thanksgiving! at least the turkey wasn't half done. XOXO
