Dear Karen,
Oh my--from that first boyfriend to sitting between husband and son in church and holding hands with both of them and everywhere in between, I so identify with this simple pleasure--beautiful my sweet friend.

One of my most favorite simple pleasures, Karen. I love it when I am riding with my dh and he reaches over and takes my hand.
I remember as a child when traveling with my parents seeing my father do the same. Thank you for sharing this today and for bringing to mind a wonderful memory.
Hugs, Sue

Gorgeous! I really need to get one of the boys holding Livia's hands. They are so sweet with her! She calls them her "bubbies." She'll walk around while they're gone at school and say "my bubbies go? My bubbies go?" So cute!
