Good Morning my friends…and happy Monday.
Hubby was out of town this weekend, so I spent the better part of the weekend planted in front of the TV working on a knit project and binge watching ‘This Is Us'…I've been hearing they hype about the show for a year or so and now…I'm hooked. I got through Season 1…anxious to jump in to Season 2.
I was also able to coax my teen son to go see a movie with me! No small feat…of course it had to be one that tempted him so we saw ‘The Black Panther‘ this weekend as well. If you enjoy the Marvel movies, I think you will love this movie. It combined all the fun and action of Marvel with some beautiful scenes and cinematography.
My parents are in the process of downsizing. The whole process of distilling 60-years of marriage into the few, most important necessities and favorite items is a daunting process. Throughout this process, they are uncovering a treasure trove of family lore and it's so lovely to be able to see all this history. Take this 25th Anniversary Card given to my grandparents by my grandmas' sister and her husband.
The card was given with with 25 dimes tapped in to the card to celebrate their 25 years of marriage.
I love so many things about this. I love the thought of taping the 25 dimes in it for their 25 years of marriage. I love that, while my grandpa died within a couple of years of this anniversary, my grandma lived for an additional 18 years and never considered removing the dimes.
In fact, grandma moved in with us after my grandpa died and as my dad was in the Navy, we moved every couple of years. So this card traveled with us from Pittsburgh, to Hawaii, Guam, South Carolina and many points in between. Something about that moves me.
It's a reminder to me that while I can be rather ruthless about ‘decluttering', there is something special about future generations uncovering some of our treasure.
A few discoveries from the web:
You don't need to speak Norwegian to reap the spring joy here.
How have I never heard of this? Talk about an easy dinner!
Well, I thought you could use vinegar to clean just about everything. Good to know what to avoid.
Always looking for ways to up my photography game.
Have a great week my friends.
