Ever since daughter Marissa moved away for college, her retired parents have been empty-nesters. So, naturally, Marissa liked to think that the many framed photos they had placed around the house were bringing them comfort in her absence. Rather than just assume that sweet notion was true, however, she decided to test it.
"One day my older sister, who has also moved out, and I were sitting on the couch wondering if my parents ever look at all the pictures to remember us when they miss us," Marissa told The Dodo. "And I wondered, 'If the pictures changed, would my parents even notice?'"
That's when she chose to enlist Dixie's help in replacing them.
