Yesterday isn't so far away.

This morning my daughter asked if we knew anyone who lived in "the olden times." I told her we did and found this photograph of my grandmother to prove it. It's a photo of my Grandma Ann that was taken for a celebration postcard similar to the ones from my previous post. Grandma Ann was a Jewish German refugee during WWII, and as different as that world might seem today, she was doing a lot of the same things I do for fun today. She loved dressing up in fun costumes and taking pictures with her friends as much as we do here at Castle in the Air.

It wasn't until this afternoon that it dawned on me that today is a very auspicious day on which to find this photo. Happy Birthday, Grandma Ann!
