Paris Day 1

Let me start off by saying how I wish I could have blogged more this year, hopefully I can get back into doing it more because it makes me happy.  Long story short, lots of work (2 jobs plus overtime to earn extra money for vacation) and some health issues that are thankfully not serious, but exhausting and life-lasting.  But I am back and you may have guessed from the title of this post - I went to Paris!  Here are way too many pictures from Day 1!

Love Letters from the past


I'm a very lucky granddaughter.  My grandmother was thoughtful enough to keep all the letters my grandfather sent to her in 1948 from Milwaukee to her in Spokane, 66 years ago.  My mother keeps the originals for safekeeping, but she lives a few states away.  In the meantime, my grandmother keeps typed copies of the letters in a big scrapbook.  For her birthday this year I decided to scan the originals (got to keep up with the digital age now-a-days) and make a book with them. That way she can still see his typed and handwritten notes from him.  Now I've never made a book before, but thanks to the handy instructions here Instructables this way a fairly easy process.
