Last Friday, the Dollen girls hit the road. Armed with GPS and Map quest directions we converged at our cousin’s home. It was a long journey but well worth the trip.
Each time we gather, we get to know each other just a little bit better. Much of our time was spent around the kitchen table talking. Sharon and her husband, Gil, were gracious hosts. Their delicious lunch nourished us as we talked life past and present.
Sharon and Gil live on a 40-acre farm. You enter their property via a long dirt road that leads you to their 100+ year old home. Their home is filled with antiques handed down from our shared ancestors! This “city mouse” got to visit her “country mouse” cousin.
We Dollen girls descend from a long line of farmers. It seems that Sharon may have inherited that love of land!
