A Memory & Laugh



When I met John, his grandmother's house was the main Christmas stop for all of the family. Everyone calls her Memaw, and every year she would give us all $5 (I think) wrapped up in a toilet paper roll... which I always thought was hilarious.

This year John and I went without gifts for each other because of having two homes, two sets of utilities to pay for, and in order for our families and kids to have a normal Christmas. So we did a couple of small things for each other... which for me came in the form of some gift certificates for some really thoughtful things... wrapped in toilet paper rolls... so I couldn't help but laugh through my tears over the choice of packaging.
