Standing Tall & Beach Balls

For when you just can't hold back that nostalgic feeling anymore, we're here with open arms.

On this day

Happy Birthday Mary Tyler Moore

You'll be hard-pressed looking for a more influential comedian than Mary Tyler Moore. Born on this day in 1936, Moore would go on to win seven Emmys for her work on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Dick Van Dyke Show among others.

Family flashback

Little red rooster on the prowl

Dads always know how to bring the fun, especially when farm animal figurines come out to play too.

The way we were

Double duty

One beach ball is never enough when a second is an arm's reach away.

Found on the farm

This is my Great Great Aunt Lola. She was born in 1873 and lived what I imagine was a pretty great life until she was 104! I remember my mom sharing stories of visiting the Merrick farm when she was a child. Her husband passed in 1932 and I believe she lived on the farm with the rest of the family after that (and the flowers are definitely from the farm). This photo - as well as many others I received from my grandmother after she passed. The pictures help put faces to all the names in the family tree!
