30 Days to 30 – Age 27

Memory #28 – age 27 yrs

I kicked off my 27th year in Alaska once again. We were on a 2 week vacation with Tim’s family, visiting his brother, Kevin, and his family. This time though, unlike our postponed honeymoon, we had a 7 month old baby in tote. She did amazingly well for having her schedule completely turned upside-down. I will say, if you’re going to travel with a baby, a 7 month old is a great age. Or at least it was for us. She wasn’t crawling yet so she was super easy to keep contained and, because she was still taking two wonderful naps, she did such an amazing job traveling so much.

Although the year was filled with wonderful “first” moments with Abbi, this year was marked with one of the sadest moments of my life — the death of my grandfather. He passed away following a stroke in the fall of my 27th year. I was very close with my grandpa. He and my grandma (my mom’s parents) were very active in raising my siblings and I. I have so many amazing wonderful memories of my grandpa and it makes me very, very sad that my girls will not grow-up knowing him.
