July 20th - I spent the day with a Great-Aunt and a cousin, both women int her mid-80s, listening to old family stories, looking through photos and family keepsakes from the past 100+ years, and thoroughly entertained by their commentary about social media. "Do you have that Facebook?" one asked the other "No, I don't need to see what people are doing all day, I don't care what they're eating. I just like my email!" "I don't have it either, I've had enough troubles in my lifetime, I don't need to see any one else's!"
July 21st - spent the day with the loveliest brides, photographing their loveliest day
July 22nd - finished the quick Portland-area trip with a visit to the headstones of two sets of Great-Grandparents, where some of my Grandparents' ashes are also spread
July 23rd - happy to be home again, in the comfort of my chaos
