Hello from sunny Southern California, y’all! I’m here at the Engage!11 conference and couldn’t be more excited about the week ahead. On my way here, I spent three days with my cousins and grandma. Grandma Bunny is 93 years old and genuinely one of the happiest, spunkiest women I know! She runs circles around most women half her age. Needless to say, she is very excited to become Great Grandma Bunny in November! It was such a wonderful visit. She loves to tell stories about days of old – her sweet Alabama wedding, her wonderful marriage to my grandfather and their military adventures. I love their wedding photograph so much! Look at that beautiful bouquet (a simple but gorgeous cattleya orchid with stephanotis), her sweet dress, adorable shoes, grandpa in his military duds and the love in their eyes!
Yesterday, one of her sweet caregivers gave her a hand-crafted flag case for my grandfather’s memorial flag that was given to him when he passed away. We all cried such grateful tears as we remembered grandpa and so many who have bravely served.
On this Memorial Day, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the men and women who have served and are serving our country every day. Dad (Vietnam) and Ari (Iraq), I love you so much. Thank you! Our wedding photo below with Ari in his dress whites…
A special thanks today to all of our servicemen and women for their sacrifices!
