Hav and I just got back from visiting Regina, Saskatchewan with my Mom and sister, Sara. We had a good time! It was so good to see my Mom's side of the family. It's always wonderful to come out of visiting relatives without something dramatic or traumatic occurring hahaha; so I'm feeling pretty blessed for my Momma's fam right about now. I truely do love them.
Also! Haven experienced his very first snow :)... there's almost nothing more beautiful than a crispy white morning with frosty trees and sparkling snow everywhere.
Back to the fam...
My Grandma is still positive that she is a queen; typical :). I do love her for it. We sat down together while Mom and Sara went shopping and Hav napped. We just talked. It was nice to listen to her stories of past family members and her past experiences.
My Auntie Mickey and Uncle Gary are still just as humble, down to earth and wonderful as ever. We all went out for brunch at the farm and had giant stacks of pancakes smother in lemon sauce and brown sugar - can you possibly imagine anything more delicious?... I think not.

I just feel like I need to document every moment and stash it away in a special library of memories in my mind. Time is slipping by every second.
I love this quote I found one day and think it goes along well with this blog:
"Two Days We Should Not Worry"
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry,
Two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of these days is Yesterday, with all its mistakes and cares,
We cannot undo a single act we performed;
We cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone forever.
The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow
With all its possible adversities, its burdens,
Its large promise and its poor performance;
It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities
Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad,
It is the remorse and bitterness of something which happened Yesterday
And the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore, live but one day at a time.
