sunday is good for the soul | 62 at 62

reminder: every sunday we have dinner with my crazy big in law family.
so this sunday was a big deal because my wonderful, beautiful mother in law, was celebrating her 62nd birthday at 62 (insert home address here) rd. there was even 62 themed dessert!
a little background story: before i ever knew this family, my mother in law’s mother used to make all the kids (my husband and his siblings, and the first grandchild, my oldest brother in law’s daughter) stockings. hand made. pretty cool. when she passed away, my mother in law took over the tradition. and so every new family member gets a stocking. i absolutely love this tradition, that the stockings will last and hold wonderful memories just as the stockings my mother in law’s mother made do for them.
so tonight, we surprised her, and gathered most of them (can you believe that’s not all of them?!) together. it was such a great night. Happy Birthday Leigh! love you!
