marmie, canon digital rebel xti
A few years ago I started calling my parents every Sunday. Not sure why on that day, exactly. It just felt right. It has now become a sacred ritual. I wait until my chores are done or there is a nice, quiet break in my day. I snuggle up on the couch and dial their number. My husband is always shocked at how long we can stay on the phone.
What I find funny is that sometimes I'll be talking to my mother (marmie) for almost a few hours and then my father gets on the phone and I end up repeating everything again. A while ago I suggested they both get on the line but that so did not work as they both kept interrupting one another. I heart my adorable parents.
I just got off the phone with my marmie and my heart feels full. I felt like posting this photo of her because it always makes me giggle and smile. I took it last Christmas morning at their place. Her in her cute pink pajamas, sitting on her plaid bum pillow, drinking her morning brew. ; )
