Today I am thankful for photography. I have loved photography for as long as I can remember. When I was a child I loved to look at photos with my Grandpa and I was always asking to use his cameras. I love to capture moments in time so I can look back on memories. Thank you to all who have made photography possible.

Today I am thankful for my brother Bill. My brother was a lot of fun when we were kids and I have great memories of us growing up together. Sure, we didn’t always get along, but the love always was and always will be there. I do not see Bill as much as I would like these days, but I think of him often. I love you Silly Billy. Thank you for always being there for me.

Today I am thankful for grandparents. The grandparent-grandchild relationship is a special one that leaves a lifetime of warm memories. I miss my grandparents so much, but I was fortunate to have 2 of them around into adulthood. My children are lucky enough to still have 4 grandparents and a great grandma in their lives. That is a lot of love. Thank you to all of the grandparents for loving their grandchildren unconditionally and being in their lives.
