Throwback to the Cabin that my Grandma Ruth Built
This is Ruth Shepard and Alvin Holmes in the summer of 1937 before they became Mr. and Mrs. Holmes and long before they became my Little Grandma and Grandpa.
My Grandma Ruth built this cabin on Big Sandy Lake in Minnesota with the help of friends while she was single and in her early 20s.
Ruth and Alvin married in April, 1938 and raised seven children in Duluth, MN. This cabin is part of their love story and part of our family legacy. ~shared by @barefootgypsy, who was inspired by @shellnort
