  • inspired by Jenny Lindahl Persson recent story

    I came to pick up my four-year old daughter from preschool. When I got there, I could see she was deep in conversation with her friend Austin over by the swings. When she got in the car, I asked Grace what she and Austin had been talking about.

    "Oh, I just asked Austin if he would marry me," she announced. "He said no. So then I asked him if he would buy me a car and he said yes."

    I was incredibly proud.

    The photo is of Grace now - still waiting for delivery of said car.
