We can't think of one without the other



Grandpa was always just grandpa to me growing up. It wasn't til yesterday I fully realized how many lives he's influenced and changed. He has been chosen to be Logan's very first citizen of the year. Everyone knows and loves John and Norda Emmett.

I have been blessed and changed forever being their granddaughter.

Jay and Jane say it perfectly here, we can't think of John or Norda Emmett without thinking of the other.

Yesterday Grandma sat next to her husband of 63 years and leaned over and said, "you've been nothing but nice to me."

They are the perfect example of what marriage should be. and can be.

Grandpa passed away this afternoon. It must have been an amazing reunion with his parents, daughters, and grandbabies who have been waiting for him.

Inspired


Check out Nicole's blog here. There is a link to the Ruben challenge. What an inspiring man. Watching this 6 minute video made me wish I didn't compare my clothes, home, decor, car, etc. with those I see every day.

I want to not only be content with what I do and have. I want to be happy. I mean I am happy now, but I want to be more like the Colonel. He doesn't care about clothes or money. (unless it's in the savings account). Buying new things doesn't get him excited like they do me. He is content.

I want to be like that. I want to be happy without buying new things and trying to impress people with my worldly possessions.

I want to focus on the important things. Learning. Being better. Spending time with family. Being a good friend.

Colonel Brandon

After watching Sense and Sensibility a few weeks ago my hubby Brandon will forever be known as Colonel. Watch the movie and you'll know why.

I love you Colonel.

Grandparents


I just found this picture on my Aunt Natalie's blog and I had to post it here. On fathers day I posted about all the fathers in my life, but I didn't include pictures of my two amazingly wonderful Grandpa's. I also started a Mother's Day post...still not finished. I guess I should do that soon. My mothers and grandmothers are just as important to me!


A lot of people ask why I got married in Logan when I don't live there. I guess a major part is because of these four people. Love them with all my heart.
