Don't you just love grandpas?


And hot pink bows?
And sugary, "little girl" kisses?
Sticky-sweet lollipops and warm summer nights?
Don't you just love backyard birthday parties
and pinatas shaped like ice cream cones?
And soft, green grass?
And the welcome shade from a towering, old tree?
Saltwater taffy that melts in your mouth, and tootsie rolls?
Don't you just love cupcakes frosted with icing
as fluffy and pink as cotton candy?
And light-hearted laughter?
And sisterly cuddles?
Moments shared with loved ones, who are wacky and wonderful?

Don't you just love making memories with the people who matter the most?

I do.

  2. Your posts always make me "Awww" and tear up and feel good! Sweetest picture! They sure look like they love their g-pa! Moments with the ones you love are seriously better than any ice cream sundae, greasy cheeseburger...
    Even better than a 68oz. Fresh outta the fountain diet coke!!! :)
    Hope your Monday is a wonderful one and the week treats you well my friend!!

  3. Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows and everything that's wonderful is what I feel when- we're together... brighter than the brightest penny.... I could keep going but Leslie Gore might slap me with copyright infringements!

  10. There's no love like a grandpa's, right? That's what I've heard. Both of my grandpas had passed before I was born, but my dad is an incredible PawPaw to my nieces. :)

  13. What a fun momma you are! And oh, Grandpas are the best -- after Mawmaws. Because after all, I'm a Maw, not a Paw...ha! Your writing is lyrical and filled with soul.

    Blessings,

  14. Additionally, beneath the HAMP program, when the payment be reduced by 6% or even more, homeowners qualify to obtain $1,000 a year for up to five several years against their principal instant payday loans the committee would like to know if the sale with the projects for the utilities was obviously a condition for approval with the loans.
