A Look Back to 1983

After recently visiting with our dear friends, the Hearns, in Marietta, I had to come home and search for pictures I remembered taking when Leah was a baby. What a blessing to look back and see Sandi holding Leah in 1983, and now standing beside Shannon (her daughter), Emery and Leah in 2011!

Another vivid memory took place on a visit to Georgia when Leah was about 7 months old. I distinctly remember Sandi chasing Leah in her home as she discovered stairs for the first time! Here is the shot of the two of them in action:

Watch out..."The Bullet" has discovered stairs!
I still marvel at this longtime friendship and love looking back on fond memories of time spent together when our now 'grown children' were young. I hope we can enjoy many more years together creating memories as grandmothers!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and why not get in touch with a dear friend you haven't seen in a while. You'll be glad you did!


  1. I remember those days in Boca Raton too, and what a wonderful and sweet neighbor Sandi was. She has become my friend as well. Sandi and her husband Al have remained such a dear friends to Linda, Ernie, and their whole family. Linda has a plaque on her desk that reads "Friends are the family we choose for ourselves."

  2. I loved seeing these flashback pictures! Thanks for finding them, scanning them, and sharing them!

  3. I remember that rocking chair!
