52|02 :: Memories

I see small graces in:


A recipe, a photo, a smell. 
So many things that trigger special 
feelings from my childhood.

I am so blessed to have had the childhood I did. I grew up close to a lot of people from both sides of the family and I am so glad for that! I have so many memories of days at Grandma & Grandpa Andersen's riding the snowmobiles, picking up sticks, Grandpa grilling hot dogs, homemade ice cream, laughter, eating! And at Grandma & Grandpa Peterson's going to the Bakery and Golden Corral, spending the night, playing on the water beds, Grandma's rolls, playing Mario and getting all the cards on the special because my Grandpa wrote them all down! And I could go on and on! I have multiple of both my Grandma's recipes and if there is anything they have made that I want to try I just email them and they send me the recipe. And I love doing it because it just brings me back to their kitchen and I feel the love. I will only ever make my Grandma Peterson's zucchini bread and yesterday I made my Grandma Andersen's Oatmeal Bars. I used to look forward to her making these, big time! There is just something about them that makes me really happy. Mine are a little lacking compared to hers and it took me three tries to make the frosting, but they still are yummy. I love you family and I miss you like crazy!!

  1. What a sweet post, Robyn. It's so neat how food connects us so closely with memories. It will be a treasure one day to have all their recipes to pass on to your own grandkids!

    p.s. You should post the recipe for that yummy treat you have pictured sometime :-) Just a thought...:-) Love you!


About Me

My photo
I am a follower of Jesus and I am committed to living life for Him. I am the wife of a wonderful man who loves me so much and the mother to the best two little boys! I love my family to pieces and miss them everyday! I love my friends (obviously) lol. They all are such a joy to me! I am a youth pastors wife and I enjoy being involved in the lives of teens and just people in general. I love photography and find so much joy in the moments I want to remember being saved in time. Last but not least I love sunshine and being warm. :) That's me in a nutshell, the important things anyways. :)
