FF – Summer rerun

There’s a saying about gift horses and mouths (although if it’s from the Greeks, you might want to check the underside) that applies to Rochelle’s invitation to rerun old stories this summer, so here is the link to my story from September 2012.

Back then I was in the throes of moving house, 7 months pregnant and about to embark on the adventures of both homeownership and motherhood for the first time. How things have changed. Now we are looking at houses for a second move, but with that baby’s Kindergarten registration making school districts a big factor in the choice. Meanwhile, his little brother just turned one yesterday!

  1. Oh time passes… I think I joined FF about the same time you had your first child… Loved the story…

  2. Gosh! has it been a year already? Of course, I took an eleven -month absence, so Rochelle had to tell me on the phone about the latest “Jen-creation.” Amazing what a year does. Write on!

    • I don’t know what to think about being mentioned in a phone conversation between you. What a weird world we live in with so many friends we’ve never met.

  3. My how times flies, Jen. I remember the photo. Guess I should check to see what I wrote. 🙂 Glad things are going well for you.


  4. Great images, and a sad ending. What not to like.

    Hi Jen! Go figure I join back in on a re-run week. Best of luck with the home hunting.

  6. A strange and touching little tale, love it.

  7. Dear Jen,

    I loved it now as I loved it then. Such a sweet legacy Grandpa left to her. I’m happy to share my respite with you. It seems that many of us are inundated this summer. Enjoy the summer vacation and thanks for your upcoming requests. 😉 I appreciated the help and support.



  8. Sounds like life is good – the sun is shining and the babbling brook is singing. Glorious.

    Such a sweet story. Beautifully written.

  10. I can’t believe your baby is going to be one already!

  11. I wasn’t in the group when this photo was first used, so your story’s new to me. It’s a beautifully fanciful interpretation of the scene. Very engaging.
