A Note from Emily
Notice the fold right down the middle of the photo? This poor picture has been through the wringer. It’s my son when he was 3 or 4 years old and I’m sure it was taken for a Primary board or activity at church. And I’m sure when someone from church gave it to him, they thought he’d proudly give it to his mother in pristine condition. But no, I found it all crumpled up in the garbage can. And yes, I am not too proud to pull something like this out of the garbage can. ☺ He said he didn’t like how he looked so he threw it away.
But that sweet slightly grumpy face? The cute little clip on tie placed haphazardly at the neck? How could I not fall in love? I’ve had it kicking around for years, not really having a story to tell, but wanting to document something. Finally put on paper, there’s not a big story tied to it, but there I was able to document the love I feel for him every time I see that sweet little Sunbeam.

April Fun Fact
I don’t like diet drinks. I’d rather drink water w/ a lemon slice anyday.
