We took a trip to Norfolk, Nebraska over the weekend to spend some time with my grandparents and to celebrate my Grandma’s birthday.  

One of my favorite places on earth with some of my favorite people on earth.

My Grandma’s wish for her 77th year? More family and more fun.  It’s the perfect wish.

A couple named Mel and Joey came into the store over the weekend. They’ve been married for 64 years, and everywhere Mel has ever traveled he’s purchased material to have a custom matching tie and dress made for he and his wife, Joey. They have 126 matching get ups and never go out dressed any way else. They invited us to their home, and we spent the morning there today. These are Mel’s ties.

Walking two miles to go do some buying today. Its pretty windy. Do I miss having a car? Nah. I love this new urban lifestyle. Especially with the sky getting darker with the promise of a good Nebraska rain. Okay gotta go. May wanna start jogging…

I mean, after a long walk, who doesn’t wanna climb up on the dining room table and nap in the clean laundry?!

As I got off of the airport Park-N-Go shuttle, the driver waved me off with the words “have fun”.  I hadn’t really thought of that as a possibility.  In fact, in caught me off guard.  I’ve traveled for weddings, for reunions, for pleasure, for exploring, for love, and also just for the hell of it.  But this is the first time I’ve traveled for this.

My Grandfather was one of the most incredible men I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing in my life.  To say we were close doesn’t quite explain it.  I am grateful that I had so many years to know him as a little girl and a Papa, and also so many years to know him as a woman and a man.  He was amazing. 

This weekend will be a celebration of his life, and although I know we will be filled with such sorrow, I can’t wait to just give my Grandma the biggest hug in the world and enjoy four unexpected days with her, my brother and his wife, my aunts and uncles, my parents, and my cousins who I love so much.

So yeah, why not? Maybe I will have fun.  It’s what he would have wanted.  In fact, in honor of him, I may even sip champagne all the way to Phoenix.

I love you Papa.

she nails it again.  dress number 9 needs to get up in my closet.  annnddd as if the temptation to buy all of the 52 dresses isn’t enough, she is only making ONE of this one.  ONE.  do you know what that does to a girl with an impulse problem?!
