The Friday Files


I hope that all is well in your world.  This week flew by for me. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that the highlight was on Wednesday when we took Lucy and her sweet Mama to lunch.

Lucy is all smiles these days.

I'm not offended that she smiles more on her Grandpa's lap. 

Nope, not at all.
