When I arrived back from my European adventure, my parents announced that they put my Grandmother’s house and family land on the market. Below are screws that were found in the old barn.
Once the new trimester and my new classes started, the Erie Sisters of Mercy had their semi-annual retreat at their lake house in North East, Pennsylvania. There is always prayer, meditation, time for conversation on religious life, and of course, lots of delicious food. Dinner is usually Italian, and made by the amazing Sisters of Mercy Associate, Angie.
Here is a shot of holiday decorations at the lake house.
Upon flying back home to California, my mom and I hosted a holiday cookie baking party for our friends. There were lots of delicious gluten free goodies (and even a few isolated gluten-y ones).
Below, is the finished product.
Inside our home, my dad puts the angel on top of the tree.
I hope that you had a wonderful holiday and have a hopeful new year!
