First things first, a bit of sad news. We lost my Grandpa over the weekend.
He was almost 94 years old and lived a long and happy life. Over the next few days we’ll be celebrating his life. He’s the one who taught me many important life lessons…like the value of a good jelly donut He will be missed. Love you Grandpa!
Because I was on top of my game last week, I still have some Bean Bytes to share with you today!
