In 2002, I inherited about a hundred photo albums. A photo archive, for one side of my family, dating back to the 1800’s. As a child, these albums were a must see during family visits. I remember having three favorites albums as a child… I especially liked the 1950-60’s. Three years ago I decided to go through all the albums, toss the duplicates, blurry photos, and photos of complete strangers.

Last winter, shortly after returning from Nepal, we started talking about a weekend celebration in June. Our original idea was to visit Cinque Terre. We would be in Switzerland and add a week to explore Italy. Sadly, the trip was canceled just weeks later, so we decided to celebrate with friends back in Minnesota.Read More

To set this up, a reminder that our son lives in Georgia. He called me at 3:05PM to say hello, to tell me he was going to a carnival with friends.Read More
