Grandparents Day

Don't forget: Grandparents Day is this Sunday, September 13.

I could sit and talk with my grandparents for hours. I love hearing their stories and feel so blessed to still have both sets alive and well. My grandfather talks about his days as a soldier in WWII often, which never cease to amaze me, but I also love hearing the simple day-to-day stories of their lives-- at ages 75 and up, they have experienced quite a bit. Still, I know the day will come when I won't be able to hear these stories anymore. Which is why I love the idea of this book from

This leather, heavy bound book titled "The Story of a Lifetime" poses questions about the writer's life and leaves room for photos and mementos. When complete, it will be a priceless record of personal history that can be handed down from generation to generation.

Have a lovely weekend!
