We had a wonderful time putting together a mini-celebration for our sweet Maddy, our nanny who lives with us.  She has always been like a member of our family but, as we have all isolated together, our bond has really grown even stronger!  Maddy earned a degree in Pastoral Studies and her graduation would have…
