On a recent trip to south Georgia to see my grandparents I got to spend some time with my grandfather and see the progress he’s made on the 1939 Studebaker Commander he’s been restoring.

My grandfather is only the car’s 3rd owner and the Studebaker has less than 70,000 miles on it, which happens to be less than what I have on my 3 year old Volvo. My grandfather bought the car this past December from a seller in South Bend Indiana (where the car was made) who had owned the car 19 years.

He’s made great progress on the car and I look forward to a drive out in the country on my next visit.

This is my grandfather, Bud jauert, with his dog and constant companion, Peppy.

This is my grandmother, Betty Jauert, peaking out the garage door to check on us. I really adore these two. Some of my favorite memories growing up are from the time spent with my grandparents. We picked blackberries for pies, made preserves, went on walks, watched birds in the cool of the evening, flew and worked on planes, cooked, fished and just enjoyed each others company. I feel blessed that I took advantage of the opportunity to get to know and love these two wonderful people!

I think perhaps the time spent with them, learning to enjoy simple moments, helped me find my photographers eye.
