Mel suggested writing about one old bookmark every Sunday. I have no idea if I'll be able to keep it up weekly, but I will give it a try this Sunday.
My bookmark for today is:
Fantastic Orange Loaf Recipe
I bookmarked (and cooked) this recipe in December 2014. It was our first Christmas as a family of 3 and we felt plenty of excitement, at least in so far as we had the energy, being the parents of a newborn. We had a theme for Christmas presents that year: We bought family members small backpacks that we found at a discounted price, and then we filled them with comfort items. I made mini loaves of banana bread and the orange loaf recipe above as part of the comfort items. And they turned out very delicious so I recommend the recipe!
We didn't know it at the time, but 2014 was the last Christmas we would spend with my dad in good health (He was very ill in December and passed away last week.). My parents were thrilled about their first Christmas as grandparents and invited all the Calgary family and in-laws over for a big dinner. They were not usually keen to throw parties so that gives you an idea how important that Christmas was to them. It makes me very sad to reflect on how different Christmas of 2014 was from 2015. But I am also glad for the time we had and the memories. I'm also glad we can't see the future, at least if there's no hope of changing it.
