Celebrate This Week: Birthday Weekend!

Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres. 
                                                         When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.

I'm in VA celebrating the birthdays of my two with both of them.
Yesterday Sara turned 30 and today Blake turns 32.
I'm so lucky to be Mom to these two kids who are also my good friends!
Sara and I came to see Teddy, to celebrate birthdays, and to help with some
of the packing for my son's upcoming move to be closer
to his work and whittle down that daily commute. 
I've treasured every moment together even though it's been a busy visit.

I've loved all the moments spent getting to know Teddy better -
reading books together, chatting together, snuggling together.  
Oh, I'm in grandma heaven!  
Here are a few pics with Teddy's comments.
Most of my books are packed,
but Grandma & I have read these over and over.

Meeting Aunt Sara for the first time!

Every year I think I should compose a #whyIwrite post.
This year I contributed a tweet.   Baby steps, right?
I write to capture the present, reflect on the past, and dream about the future!


  1. Ramona, you capture the present well with pictures and stories of Teddy's growing life. I feel I know him now and always look forward to seeing his next moves. Continue your road to being a happy Grandma who is growing a lifelong reader.

  2. What a beautiful family!! You have so much to celebrate! Thank you for sharing!
