It was an ordinary weekend.
Lots of laughter, maybe a wee bit too many drinks, countless afternoon naps, time with friends, and time for snuggles.
And amid all that, there was an unexpected moment of heartache. Just a moment, but still.
Brought on by no less than the candy aisle at Target, and ended in a little cry during our twilight drive home again.
It hit me, as I stood there, eyeing all the types of Valentine's Day candy, just enjoying all the colors and choices....I won't be buying one of those boxes of Ferro Roche candies and a Valentine's Day card to put a little smile on Grandma's face this year.
And while I miss her everyday, it's in the moments like that, the little ones I'd try to find a way to bring a little smile and sunshine to her day that I miss her the most.
I cannot get this quote out of my mind.
I love the idea of this birthday tradition. Friends, lets get on it!
Twenty-five things you don't have to justify.
A sweet little love story.
