The family station wagon

How many of us grew up in the car in this episode?! Ours came from "Downtown Motor Company", otherwise known in my family as Granddaddy's car lot. If the sun hit the door just right you could see where it once said "Sisters of the...", because it used to belong to a convent.

Many wonderful memories were made on trips in that car!

Take a coffee break and watch:

One of my favorite gifts of 2015

My lifetime friend Joyce is married to Tim, a brilliant cardiologist. Tim also happens to be a very talented photographer and he snapped this photo of Amber and me at Lisa's wedding a few years ago. A week or so before Christmas I received a framed copy in the mail and it now has a special spot in my living room.

Thank you Tim and Joyce for capturing this special moment/memory on film!

Message on a napkin

I was having a rough day, and then I found this in my purse. Morgan, my middlest grand-girl has the sweetest heart!

Last week we nailed down the date for our annual family vacation, and as you can tell they are a little excited.

Another sweet sign

One of the charity events that we always love attending each year is the Holiday Howler. This event is put on by the Brown Dog Foundation, and they use the funds raised to help families with their furbabies medical expenses. 

I had some money to donate in Amber's memory and gave part of it to this great charity, and a couple of weeks later I received an email titled this: 

For those of you who grew up in Henderson you'll remember Leo was the name one of Amber's favorite pets. Her beloved Weimaraner! 

In December Leo was also a sweet dog in California who has diabetes and he and his owners needed some help with his medical expenses. The donations from this year's Holiday Howler helped Leo get the lifesaving medications he needed.
