For the first time in...well...forever, we are not going to see our family this year.  In addition to being a bummer, it has also made me appreciate my amazing parents even more.  

It's also made me really want to know more about their story, history, and desire for legacy.  I found this great company (not a client no affiliation), StoryWorth, that has a great process of basically building a biography for someone you care about.  Seemed like a brilliant idea to create a permanent history of/for my family.
