1916 Baker’s Chocolate Advertisement

Love this ad from 100 years ago. Especially because my grandpa was born on December 11, 1916 and he would’ve been 2 weeks old on his first Christmas Day.

December is a month full of birthdays in our family. Little Bit’s and mine, my other grandpa’s in 1921, my dad’s, and my sweet nephew Seth has a birthday today!

Happy birthday, Seth! 

Thank you Miss Sheryl, for letting me share your post. Seeing it filled my heart with joy and smiles. Happy holidays to you and your family!

A Hundred Years Ago

          Uneventful can be good! Yesterday about an hour ahead of us, the interstate was closed due to some fella at a rest stop causing issues. No one was hurt, thank goodness. It was cleared out by the time we got up that way. I’ll take calm and bright anytime! 😊😊😊
