Octavius and I are taking a trip to St. Louis to attend two graveside memorial services. 

I’ll be seeing relatives that I haven’t seen for 17 years.

I’m not taking my computer, and I don’t have a cell phone, so I won’t have internet access until I return late next week. I’m looking forward to seeing your comments on all of the posts I’ve shared this week when I return!

  1. Octavius is so adorable. He seems like a very happy baby. I hope you both have a safe trip, Brandy. It’s always nice when you can reconnect with family.

  2. Sorry you have two services to attend, but it is always nice to re-connect with family you haven’t seen in a while. My father had 14 siblings and my mother, 5, so our family is quite large as well. Some of our best times have been at funeral breakfasts. I hope Octavius is a good traveler–we flew with our older daughter for the first time when she was three months old–easier than waiting another year and then trying it. Enjoy the break in routine.

  3. Travel safely, Brandy. I hope you are able to enjoy reconnecting with your relatives amidst the sadness of the occasion.

  4. Sorry for your losses. Have a safe trip! The baby is adorable and I’m sure the joy of family seeing you both will help with the sorrow.

  5. Brandy,
    What an adorable pic of the baby! You are so imaginative with your photo ideas.
    Safe travels to you and even though it isn’t for the best of reasons, I hope you enjoy visiting with family.
    Take Care,

  6. What precious photos of this sweet little guy! Condolences on your loss – I hope your travel goes smoothly and that your family at home does well in your absence.

  7. I hope your and Ocatavius’ trip to St Louis was wonderfully memorable and that he did well in a strange environment and on the plane.

  8. HI Brandy,

    I’m sorry you had to leave under such sad circumstances but I hope that you and Octavius were able to enjoy a mini “vacation” and visit with family while you were in St. Louis.
