“Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God.” Mary Manin Morrissey
This summer, we had the chance to visit Allison and her husband, Jabe. Morgan was excited to see them and their “new old house”, a beautiful home in Bucksport, Maine.“New Old House” Backyard View
They kept us busy touring the towns of Bucksport, Belfast, and Bangor. But mostly, it was just good to see their faces and get some hugs. We can see why they love the area. We collected some sweet memories from our visit there.Allison and Jabe in Belfast
Right now they are busy with a serious kitchen renovation. Since Allison’s birthday is coming up, we thought she’d enjoy receiving her Mamaw Vice’s china for the new kitchen. Morgan supervised, while I gathered all the pieces to take to the “Brown Truck Store”. Soon, Allison will be “Waiting on a Brown Truck”Kazooing Allison a Happy Birthday!
When Dad came in and saw the dishes being packed, he said it reminded him of Mamaw Vice’s gumbo. He would always try to grab a large serving bowl for his portion. Mamaw would get on to him, and hand him a regular bowl. We hope Allison and Jabe enjoy making new memories with it soon.
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope!
