little treasures

This letter is a little treasure of mine. It is a love/i'm sorry/tender letter that my grandpa wrote to my grandma when they were going steady. This letter is hidden away in one of my boxes and it holds a special place in my heart. I did not know my grandpa thomas as well as I would have wanted to, but when I read this letter I feel like I get to know a side of him that a grandchild wouldn't normally know. He really loved my grandma. He wrote her love letters like this, he told her how swell she was, he told her how much she meant to him, he fought for her. This is a little treasure that has become one of my most precious possessions. 

Love and kisses,

While I was home

As I get older it seems that I spend less and less time and home, but honestly that is all I want to do. So while I was home for a couple of weeks I had so much fun spending time with family and friends.

Here I am with beautiful Alyssa at her wedding. She was the cutest, I am so happy for her!
I am just loving my Dad's cheeeesy smile here.
 Sister love.
 Cousin and best friend love.
The next night we had a birthday dinner for miss Haley before she went off to NYC. I think I pose more when I take pictures with Haley. I have to keep up.

Yeah apparently we don't like each other.
 One of the cutest boys ever. Love it when the Haddocks come to visit.
 And then June came and life was just even that much better!
 If you check out my sister's blog too, June loves to put on my Mom's shower cap. I think she looks like the little mushroom character from Mario Brothers.
 June just putting the finishing touches on Bella. They both just look beautiful!
 June is obsessed with Grandpa. And I think she is hilarious when she does the awkward laying on him. Pretty much I just find her hilarious.
