About Our Shared Blog
The name of our blog honors our mother, Lulu, and her mother, Emma. It is shared by Lulu's daughters, Carolyn and Thea, and Lulu's granddaughter, Kathryn. We hope that keeping an online journal will help us to focus on the simple gifts of daily living that inspire us: nature, art, music and movement, food, sharing. It's like getting a first, NEW box of 8 Crayola Crayons every day!
Banner photography by our brother (and Uncle), Lee Webb! Except for the second photo from the left, of our grandmother, Emma, taken about 40 years before Lee was born! Thanks for your wonderful photos, Lee.
