an average day for us, canon digital rebel xti & flash!
Some of you may know that Boho Boy's sweet Father Leonard passed away earlier this year. Tomorrow morning we head out early to Canada to spend a week at the home where he was raised. This home was built by his father's hands with whatever scraps he could find around town. It sits on a beautiful piece of land with a plethora of trees and a bridge that leads to a river behind it. Walking through their land is like finding your way through a forest. So many memories live there. What an eclectic family they were. I will never tire of hearing their stories.
His father's birthday is this coming Tuesday and we wanted to celebrate him. So we chose to wait until his birthday to have the wake. All his friends will gather at his home and Leonard's ashes will be spread by his sons. Leonard didn't want a funeral...he wanted joy and celebration and this is what he will get.
It is so bittersweet. It will be the first time we are there since Leonard's passing. We spent time in Florida with his mother at their winter home after he passed away but have yet to go to his hometown. It will be a richly emotional time. His mother has been so strong. I have much to learn from her.
If you could send love and comfort to our family during this time, that would be wonderful. We miss Leonard deeply but we know he is smoking his corn cob pipe in heaven while playing piano and trumpet for the angels.
Boho Boy definitely has his dads talents, sense of humor and charm. Lucky me.
I'll be back in a week...
