If you don’t like something, make it better.

This looks like a bad photo of a regular coat hanger right? Until you read what’s in the card. In my grandmother’s handwriting:

“Grandpa didn’t like cardboard on his hangers so he took them apart and replaced the cardboard with wooden dowels. This hanger should remind you of grandpa’s legacy. If you don’t like something, make it better.”

This Christmas present might be my favorite this year. What a great thought with which to end 2011 and look toward 2012. Merry Christmas, everyone.


60 Years


This week, my grandparents celebrate SIXTY YEARS OF MARRIAGE. Isn’t that crazy? I didn’t even make two – I can’t imagine sixty.


The flowers in church today were given in honor of the occasion.


Grandma said that she never imagined sixty years as she signed that marriage license – if she had she might have thought about it a little harder. 😉

Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa, for the amazing example you’ve set!
