Why I'm Thankful...
For parents, and a family... like this.
I was lucky enough to get a hold of the Czaban Family Archives in advance of my parents' 50th anniversary this summer. My pops did a great job of documenting things - often, ordinary things - along the way when I was little. And my mom, was and is, simply the best.
I am so lucky that both are alive and thriving, and living nearby to dote on our daughters and spoil them rotten.
If you ever wanted to see the backstory of my upbringing and why I jokingly call them the "mean streets" of McLean, Virginia... well here's the definitive documentary.
I hope everyone who reads this blog, also had a great Thanksgiving.
And if your parents are still alive and in your life, enjoy every minute with them.
And for your kids, take lots of pictures and video. They mature with age and become priceless family artifacts.
