Embrace Grandma

Today my Grandmother would have turned 90 years old.
I still can't believe that she is gone.
I'm so grateful for the many times I got to spend with her and
for the powerful ways she impacted my life.
Today my Embrace The Camera is some of my favorite pictures of my Grandma.

I've always been sad that this photo is blury. But I love it anyway because I can still remember just how soft her cheek was as I pressed up against it at my cousin's wedding!

This was my Grandma's 86th birthday that she spent at my house when she came out to meet her twin great grandaughters! She said her mother always made her a white cake with lemon filling and whipped cream frosting... so that's what I made her.

I love how hard she's laughing in this picture! My Grandma laughed a lot and I always loved to laugh with her.

And of course my favorite picture of me and my Grandma!!! Mother's Day, smoking some candy cigarettes in the back of the car in the pouring rain!!
Happy Birthday Grandma! I miss you like crazy.
