My 11 year old chocolate lab Gracie's smile. She is sleeping and smiling at the same time. She's such a darlin'! Sweet Dreams, Gracie!

My thirteen year old nephew after returning home to Italy was asked by his teacher who he would like to look like. My sister (his mom) reported to me that his answer was:
"I want to be like auntie Franca, because she never stopped learning"
Makes me smile everytime I think about it and keeps me on keeping busy.

Scooping up my pens and pencils, logging out of my computer, locking the office door, knowing that we made our deadline by 13 hours, clocking out and leaving for a week...I'm on vacation!

Holding my great-nephew for the very first time yesterday. I was feeling rotten and tired from organizing the shower for my niece, but the minute I got a chance to sit down, she plunked the little one into my arms and suddenly the world melted away. Not having children of my own, I cherish those moments when I can hold a tiny baby (2 weeks old). The fact that he belongs to my favourite niece made it all the more special!

I understand completely. Not having children of my own, I also cherish those precious moments with children in my life. Here is the next generation of perfect bread makers:

LP, I know exactly what you mean. A couple of weeks ago we had a Baby Shower for the 4 little ones born in the last month. These are co-workers babies and the reason I couldn't take vacation...to many maternity leaves.

Anyway, I spent a good part of the afternoon holding and rocking babies. I was in heaven!
