Over and over, it has come to my attention that memories and reflections of those before us will be lost. I have a hanging on my wall that says, "Enjoy the little things in life because one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things." And so I set out to record the little things. The memories and "noteworthy" events of those beloved before us.

Wedding Day upon us and we wake up to rain and wind. Wind we should be used to in Southwest Minnesota. Rain? Ahg, pictures. And then with full confidence, mom smiles and repeats what her dad (grandpa Arnie) taught her,
Rain before 7, it'll be done by 11.  Rain after 7, it'll rain all day.
