Happy (70th) Birthday, Grandmary!

With love from family, friends, and friends who are family, a collaboratively concocted, designed, and coordinated memorial piece of artwork to say how much we love you on this very important birthday!

Now that the secret is out, we're going to share with the world!


Love you Mom!

Quote of the Day: As for Grown-ups...

"I'm going to tell you something important. Grown-ups don't look like grown-ups on the inside either. Outside, they're big and thoughtless and they always know what they are doing. Inside, they look just like they always have. Like they did when they were your age. The truth is, there aren't any grown-ups. Not one, in the whole wide world."

Quote of the Day: True of Everybody

"Nobody actually looks like what they really are on the inside. You don't. I don't. People are much more complicated than that. It's true of everybody."

Quote of the Day: Draw your lines in the sand

Dream about it 
Draw your lines in the sand 
Sometimes the way things happen 
We don’t need to understand


I get oceans of time 
Now I don't look for it 
I get to walk a blurry line 
Into the heart of it

~ Morten Harket
