January 23rd

This day is special for two reasons, its the day I got married, 01.23.99.  Thirteen years ago, lucky number thirteen.  Seems like yesterday, but also seems so very long ago.  Time is flying by.  I couldn't be happier.  We have a wonderful life and a wonderful family.  Here's to many, many more years of fun, laughter and love!

The other reason is this lady, my maternal grandmother, Evelyn Nichols, born January 23, 1913.  A woman so full of life, full of energy and full of love for her family.

A woman who was happiest in her kitchen cooking for the family at every holiday imaginable.  I still can't figure out how she managed to cook 6 course meals and fit us all around her dining room table but she did it with gusto, like any good Italian grandmother would.

A woman who would move heaven and earth for her grandchildren and spoil us rotten whenever she could.

I love you so much Grandma and miss you everyday.  I'm honored to share this special day with you.  You will forever be in my heart and the hearts of everyone in your family.



  1. Beautiful, brought tears to my eyes.

  2. She was a great lady. You have a lot of her fine qualities.
