Time for me to fly, plus GRAND Social No. 61

Sometimes it seems truly surreal how quickly time flies. I feel like I just got to the desert to visit my grandsons yet it's already time for me to fly.

I'll share more about our time together in the days to come. Today, though, I'd love to show you this — a photo Megan took of my sweet boys and me on our last full day together:

I just love those boys more than words can express. (Yes, even when Mac is being a typical two-year-old turd and refusing to joyfully participate in an impromptu photo session with Gramma.) I'm sure you all get it though. I'm sure you have the exact same thoughts and feelings about the kiddos in your lives — in terms of love and affection, that is, not sentiments on uncooperative toddlers.

Ah, well...

In other news, it also seems like we just had the GRAND Social link party, as well. Time for another, though, so here goes: Welcome to GRAND Social No. 61. Thank you for joining me!

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog specifically about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button marked with "Add your link" below and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:


<a href="/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg " alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • The GRAND Social linky is open for new posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Bloggers who link up would be honored to have one and all — other bloggers as well as readers — visit, read and, if so moved, comment, even if just a "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social."
