Triple Crown and Three Crowns

What a weekend! I am exhausted today with all the different events I managed to cram in. Saturday started with saying goodbye to my godfather. He joined my family on our spring break trips to Mexico and LOVED meeting the Gustavus friends that would join me on the trip. He will be missed, and it was touching to see that the college sent flowers.Gustavus RosesWe relaxed after the service and joined his family for dinner Saturday night. We still prioritized the Triple Crown by leaving our table to watch the race, and were rewarded with a happy ending!

I made the mistake of asking Johnny “would you like coffee” and he surprised us all by saying “Sure!” I guess I’ll have to stop that joke, as I have offered him beer in the past, and I don’t think that’s a habit we need to start (he is 23 for the record).

I had every intention of looking up the meaning behind Gustavus’s use of the Three Crowns, and explaining how it applies to life in some sort. Unfortunately Wikipedia isn’t give me a great meaning to go off of.

Instead, I’ll remind you that life is short, so go live it.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your Godfather’s passing… It’s so hard to lose a loved one. But it does remind us to really seize the day and make the most of each moment on earth.
