Seven lovely days with my daughter and her fiance spent doing ordinary things. There’s always that pressure to try and squish as much sight seeing into our trips out west as we can because we’ve traveled so far. Meg and I decided this time we wouldn’t.
Other than a day trip to Banff, our time was filled with sipping coffee, reading cookbooks, watching movies, a couple of dinners out, being in the kitchen together and talking. For hours and hours we spoke to each other and more importantly we listened to one another. It was a week of doing regular stuff. It was perfect…
I’ll see her again in June.
