21 years ago, over Thanksgiving, John and I took our children and met our friends, Bill and Bobbi Atherton, for a week in Rome.  The photo below shows me and the kids at the catacombs in 1994.  (Chris is almost 18, Sam is 11 and Alex is 10. You don’t need to know how old I am. )
Today John and I (sans children, who now have lives of their own) are flying to meet up with the Athertons in Rome again. (It’s our new tradition.  Travel to  Rome together every 21 years till we die.)  Even though the children are not accompanying us this time, I’m posting a picture of me with them as we all look today below.  What a difference 21 years makes, huh?
Happy Holidays!
