So happy to have everyone in the chat that came! Thanks for the fun. :) I still feel like I have no idea what I'm doing in the chats, so thanks for hanging in there with me! 


I can't wait to see the layouts that come from this challenge, I think it's amazing to hear stories from my grandparents and learn about what life was like when they were younger. It seems like such a different time back then versus now, and it is! So much has changed, and it's neat to me to notice the differences and imagine life during more simpler times.


Of course, if you're the oldest living relative, then you have an important opportunity to share your own experiences with younger generations and really give them a sense of what your life was like. And although you may not have only happy memories, I think it's also important to share everything and really give a full history. That way your descendants can see that even though people go through hardships and difficult times, that it is possible to make it through! What a source of strength for them to learn about your perseverance during challenges! I think the "kids today" need to hear that more than we think. 


Alright, off my soapbox. ;) Thanks again to everyone who came to the chat, and congratulations to Westina who won a custom layout! Can't wait to do it again! :)
