What a week!!  Sorry for my absence!  I have had a long, exhausting week filled with sickness!

The good news is, I found an AMAZING find on Craigslist Wednesday and I am -so- excited to share it with you all!!  But not today.  I don't have a good picture of it yet, and I had something even more exciting sitting in my inbox this morning when I got to work!

Wednesday I was browsing my family history, trying to find some thoughtful, meaningful gift for my dad for Father's Day.  That didn't quite work out, but I found an interesting site that had information on pretty much everybody's family in the county on there.  I had sent the person running the site to add myself and my siblings onto my parent's page to update it.  The woman did so, but then emailed me these back:

Pictures of my great-great-Grandparents, Salvatore (Sam) and Teresa who immigrated here from Italy!
I have NEVER seen a picture of either of them, which is what makes this so special to me.  Teresa looks so much like my Grandpa, who unfortunately passed away in 2007.  I miss him terribly, but these pictures bring back some very special memories for me.  (Love you and miss you Grandpa!!  Love, Tilda)

I am going to send these pictures over to Walgreen's and put them in some frames for my dad for Father's Day.  I couldn't have thought of a more perfect gift!

I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day weekend - a special shout-out to my dad - LOVE YA!!  :)

See you around,


  1. WOW! what an awesome gift that will be - so thoughtful!
