my darling,

, originally uploaded by Annedear.


I just wrote out the greatest tribute ever to you, my dear, but as luck would have it, somewhere in the wild world between flickr and blogger it took a wrong turn and appears to be lost forever. I hope it didn't end up on someone else's blog. That would be uncomfortable.

Suffice it to say when it comes to the subject of dads: At the tip of the top, cream of the crop, is Benjamin Tracy and there we stop.

Though our children don't fully understand yet how lucky they are to have you, I do.

I do. I do. I do.

little treasures

My blog died a little while ago. I started to feel really exposed, and self-doubting, and etc. about everything on here so I just quit posting (obviously?).


I felt a little stirring in my soul in church a few weeks ago, when someone talked about trying to dig up some history from older people and found that their memories weren't quite what they once were. And because no one wrote things down all these precious little treasures were lost with time. I felt so struck by that. All these precious little family treasures that make us laugh, or smile, or cry are being lost as we forget things that happened even yesterday. And so, I hope to post on here a little more often partly to share with family and friends the little daily things that are happening around here, but also to help me remember these tiny moments. I hope! Oh I'm so terrible at staying on top of these things but onward we go and I'll do my best.
