Happy Grandparents Day

#grandparentsday #grandparents

Who remembers been a little kid visiting the grandparents? I bet most of you have great memories of grandma sneaking with you to the kitchen to give you another treat! Maybe you were the picky eater, and grandpa sneaked to the store nearby to get you a bread loaf to have with some butter.

I do remember gathering at the grandparents house just to share with the cousins. But I also remember the great times I had with my grandparents.

My father's mom, she was so jovial! It was super fun to be with her. She taught me how to color, because believe me I sucked at coloring. She had a great technique! She was a very cool woman! ALso very emotional. Every once in a while she ordered stuff from the AVON books and she would gift us -the grandkids- with something. She was always thoughtful and adorable. I still remember her smell, her wrinkled skin, her smile. To honor her, I named my daughter after her.

My father's dad - he passed away when I was almost five years, but I remember him walking down the hill towards me playing in the garden every afternoon. He would swing me in his arms, giving me the safest place in the world. He was a very humble man.
