It was my nickname when I was little - my way of saying 'baby', I'm told. You pronounce it 'bee-bee'. I figured I came in with it, I could go out with it! But I really don't care what he calls me as long as he knows me! It is so true - that feeling that grandchildren give you is certainly joy!

Yes, too long! lol I keep intending to publish more and keep them shorter, but so far, every time I do, I get too busy with work! I'm not giving up, though.

The sky put on a grand finale sunset outside my window as I started reflecting on this past year. However, it doesn't take a lot of reflection to know that 2018 will go down in history as one of my favorite years. It's the year I became a grandmother! Watching Little C grow month to month has been an absolute... Continue reading

Yes, I really thought it would end, but now I realize there are a whole lot of things she taught me that I'm just not aware of yet. It's a nice feeling. And grandparenting is so much more fun!!

It didn't hit me until today, but I'm sure my mom must have been a bit nervous as the birth of my first child drew close. After all...

... let's take a step back to October. I need to finish a post I started weeks ago, because October is one of my favorite months, for lots of reasons... Although we met in September, it was in October that we knew we were in love. Aren't we cute? Sigh. That's probably enough reason right there to love October, but... Continue reading

I agree with you! I can't believe October is half over. I've been intending to write a post about it because there have been so many sweet!s, but I just haven't found the time.... because there are so many sweet!s. I'm grateful! (But still determined to write one - so I remember!)
