Photo(s) of the Day: BFFs

This weekend we were thrilled to have good friends from Colorado stay with us. The best part … they have a son (whom I’ve nicknamed Lil’ W) just two days older than Baby K! Is it destiny? We’ll see in about three decades – the daddies have agreed they can start dating when they’re 30. I guess they haven’t noticed Lil’ W is already making a move on Baby K!

Photo of the Day: Memories of Grandpa

Today’s blog post is dedicated to my grandpa, who passed away two years ago today. Even though I miss him all the time, it really was a blessing after several years of dementia and living in a nursing home.

This is one of my favorite photos of him. In 2008 he was living in the nursing home, and grandma was recuperating from surgery and couldn’t visit for a couple of months. Despite the memory loss, he knew that grandma hadn’t been visiting, and he was thrilled when she finally came back, constantly kissing her and holding her hands. Their love endured everything – 64 years of marriage and beyond.
