Things I’ll Miss About My Parents When They’re Gone - part 1
1. My mom’s laugh
2. My dad’s smile
Calm and knowing.
3. The way they bicker over petty nonsense
In a cute way. Mostly.
4. My mom’s cooking
Tastes like childhood.
5. My dad’s grilling
Tastes like summer.
6. Spiritual discussions with mom
What is God?
7. Sports discussions with dad
The Packers are never perfect, but we'll keep hoping
8. My mom’s drinks
Wisconsin Old Fashioneds, Margaritas, Long Island Ice Teas, Roadside Ritas, Autumn Cocktails, so much more. She knew how to mix!
9. My dad’s wine
Started making wine after he retired. His homemade apple wine from our tree in the backyard might be my favorite.
