I just love how moments like these come together spontaneously.
Just a few days ago E.A’s parents arrived midday after traveling over the beautiful North Cascades Scenic Highway. They stopped at a few of their favorite places along the way and arrived with arm fulls of seasonal treats one of my favorites being fresh strawberries, oh so good!
We found our way out to the backyard where the girls excitedly shared all their new tricks on the swings and toured our summer landscaping of mountain lupin and homestead roses in full bloom.
We gravitated to the shade due to the hot western sun and the scene unfolded. Grammie began spinning the rich tales of her childhood Nashville family. The girls soaked in all the stories and I could tell they were learning the age old art of story telling. I hope they will continue the Crownover tradition of sharing family history through stories.
And as I look back on that afternoon I can only think that in Nashville they were sitting under a shade tree, enjoying the fruits of the garden and sipping on refreshing drinks spinning tales just like we were.
