a weekly capturing the contentment in everyday life
We had a lovely trip home to upstate New York and managed to balance some down time alongside some delightful family get-togethers.

Our trip to New York to visit home and celebrate our niece's wedding!
Megan is not only a cousin to my daughters, but one of their very best friends. We were delighted to be part of the special day. We teared up watching my brother-in-law give his daughter away, but also seeing how grown up these sweet girls have become. There are 4 Murphy girls between my husband and his 4 siblings and they are the some of the smartest, wittiest, tenderest and fiercest young women I know. We took advantage of being together to capture a few group shots.
Grandpa's 89th Birthday Party/Hymnsing
When we realized we'd be in town for my grandfather's birthday, my sister put together a lovely hymnsing. Providentially, my father's sister and brother-in-law were in from Florida along with a few of their kids' families the same weekend. We reserved the chapel in my grandparents' retirement home. We sang some of the favorite old hymns and choruses we'd grown up singing together and enjoyed some performances from the kids. We even got my Grandpa to play a few tunes himself. (Did any of your families grow up singing this at every reunion and family wedding?
