I was working for Hewitt, with thoughts of "retirement" but no definite plans. Katie was a sophomore at Georgia Tech and Sara was a freshman in high school. Marc was working hard and playing golf (that's one thing that hasn't changed!) We had a big lovable yellow lab named Chance. We loved our iPods and digital cameras. No one had a smart phone. I didn't know anyone personally who blogged. I was on a break from knitting and didn't know about the on-line world springing up around our craft.
Back then, Katie and Sara also published posts. It was always a highlight to open the blog and see a new post from one of them. I spent a few hours last night and this morning reading through those old archives. Mostly wonderful memories.
That summer Katie traveled to Europe for Study Abroad (she met her future husband Rob on the flight over there) and Sara went to camp. It was a trial run for empty nesting.
The funniest post I read was this one, from Sara, late that summer.
I couldn't find a photo of the three of us together from those early days, but there are plenty of "two of us". Here's what we looked like back then.

Thank you for reading...and being part of our story.
