My little brother is moving to New York and I'm going to miss him terribly. He came up with the idea to base the invite on the MetroCard and I ran with it. The back is based on the MetroCard, too. But, I can't figure out how to blur our contact info so I can't post it. :) It was actually a lot of fun to do!
We are headed down to Sutherlin, Oregon this weekend. There will be a memorial at the Oakland High School for my Uncle Joe. Then, the family is headed up to Aunt Linda's to send him off right! There will be lots of family, lots of food and drink, lots of tears and a lot of reminiscing.
We may have found a house! I found it on Craig's List and in the small town way of things (welcome to Canby!) we know the guy selling it. His sister is my sister-in-law's good friend and my old realtor. Andrew knows him through work, I think. Even funnier, my mom knows the people who used to own the house. I'm calling him today to schedule a viewing, he's got renters in there right now, and I hope we can look at it soon!
