    This past Christmas was the first one without Grandma Jones, who was known for her chocolate chip cookies and pretzel salad....while the budget didn't fit with custom tea towels for everyone, I copied her handwritten recipe onto really nice thick paper, added tiny wooden spoons, and made a magnet out of her recipe for the whole family! It was so wonderful to pass on her recipe and for everyone to be able to have a little 'piece' of Grandma for their kitchen fridge! Love all your ideas, especially the book of LOVE LETTERS.

    Such sweet ideas. Unfortunately, my mom is in the hospital right now. She fractured her neck in a fall and has tested positive to Covid 19. Her 90th birthday is at the end of the month so I'm trying to think of how to celebrate that--it's tricky right now. Her spirits are good and her nurse says she's doing well, so it's not all doom and gloom here.
