A Tribute to Monopoly

Tuesday's Tribute
Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.

I love playing cards and board games. Especially when it's with my family and grandparents. I played countless games with them growing up. A day didn't go by that I didn't play some sort of game with someone. I didn't always win, hardly ever in fact, but I loved playing anyways. We would laugh and laugh until we were rolling on the ground.


There was just something about a game that allowed my quite reserved family to let go, say what they were feeling and be loud. One of my very favorite memories is when I was 16 and staying at my cousins house. We stayed up all night chit chatting and playing monopoly. It was that aaha moment when I realized people actually can like me and have fun with me.


Hubby doesn't really like to play cards or board games, so when I saw a Monopoly game for the x-box 360 I just had to get it. It's not as good as the real thing but it's pretty cute and Hubby plays with me! So today my tribute is to Monopoly. The old memories of it and the new ones.

I didn't play many games but I have wonderful memories of playing gin rummy with my papa. I always wondered if he let me win.
