mervs been working out of town a lot lately. we mostly see hime on sunday, sometimes saturday. i do everything i can to make the time go by faster and i have major sympathy for single moms(and dads!). we spent some time at my parents last night. we were hanging out in the kitchen chatting and my dad started telling me the story of how he met and proposed to my mom. he's been trying to recollect it for his journal. it's such a cute story. especially, when my mom is on the sideline giving her version of what really happened. this led to my mom and i digging out her wedding gown (which was hand made by my grandma dot and looks like the old gunne sax style dress), me playing dress up, and telling her i'd love to inherit it and then looking through their wedding scrapbook. (the real type of scrap book... complete with real scraps.) this is my all time favorite photo of them. their engagement photo taken by my dads best friend bob calkins. i'm getting one made to hang in my house.
