Happy 100th Birthday to Our Namesake!

January 8th... Happy Birthday Grandma Ruth!  

Today would have our namesake's 100th birthday and I can't think of a sweeter way to celebrate than to be getting ready for our 5th summer rental season and all the families and memories we will welcome under Ruth's roof in the coming months!

As I reflect back on the memories of owning this house I can't help but think of how much Grandma would have loved to know all the card games played around the kitchen table, cups of coffee had on the deck and meals cooked in the kitchen.  How it has been an opportunity for myself and my parents to get back to town more, to see family and to fill the house full of generations of cousins.  Or that her favorite little neighbor boy/adopted grandson from years ago is the one tending to the yard and his wife is the one who cleans the house and gets it ready for guests each week.  It has truly taken a team to keep this sweet house up and running - a team for which I am very thankful for!

So happy birthday Grammy, I promise lots of fresh picked blueberries, laughs and memories will once again happen under your sweet and welcoming roof in 2017!
