Lanette’s Blog: Memories of Grandma

How lucky am I to have been loved by her? My grandma, Evelyn Hansen, passed away last week. She was 97 years old and, man. . . did she live every single second of those 35,000+ days. Growing up, my memories of her are filled with laughter, cooking, baking, gardening,

Lanette’s Blog: Summer’s Here (Almost)

SUMMER!!! It’s not technically here until next week, but this weekend, the heat and humidity are a-comin’. Don’t hate me, but I love this weather. I like sitting in a chair on the deck with a popsicle in this weather. But I won’t be willingly running a 5K when the

Lanette’s Blog: The Last Weeks of School

The last few weeks of school, in my memory, were always filled with fun and excitement. Your schedule had nothing to do with math and everything to do with cleaning up the room and final memories with that teacher. But man … now I have an insane amount of appreciation
