Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

Image

Last month while I was home for the weekend my dad and I had breakfast at a restaurant we like. My maternal grandpa moved in with my mom and I when I was a junior in high school. We, and sometimes my dad, would eat at this restaurant with my grandpa. My grandpa liked to order their french toast. Every time I eat at this restaurant it conjures up memories of my grandpa.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

This week’s photo challenge is “up”. Several members of the St. Andrews Presbyterian College (now St. Andrews University) Class of 2003 gathered together at our Alma Mater for Alumni Weekend. This got me thinking of “up” in terms of moving “up” in the world after college graduation. Here is a group photo from this weekend.
