I know you think you have seen this before, but it is actually new. My niece and her youngest daughter are coming into town this weekend for a quick visit. So I thought I would whip up this little purse courtesy of Sara. I have now made three of these and they are so quick and fun. I think a four year old might like this with a few fun items inside.
I am so excited about their visit. It will only be for 48 hours, but at least I get to see them. My niece is mainly coming to visit my parents, she hasn't seen them for several years as she was living in Amsterdam until last summer. My parents are slowly fading. It is difficult for my Mom to get around and leaving the house even for a doctor's appointment exhausts her for days. So we will make several trips over to see them for short periods of time, so they can enjoy the visit but not be overwhelmed.
My parents are celebrating 65 years of marraige on June 1. I can't even imagine that. In this day and age where people do not work as hard on relationships, I think 65 years is amazing. They had good times and certainly they had very bad times, but they always stuck together.
They got to know each other when my Father was overseas during WWII. My Mother lived in the neighborhood and picked him to write to while he was away. She sent a picture of herself to him and he fell in love. It was so cute she cut off the bottom of the picture because she did not want him to see her bobbie socks. He sent her a picture without his shirt on, quite risque for that period of time. He came back in one piece and went to her house right away. He told her when he saw her that he was going to marry her, she thought he was crazy. He took her for a drive to get an Orange Crush, they were engaged and married within a year. Ah......what a great love story. If we could all be that lucky.
Hope you are all having a wonderful week.
