My Nanna. We share a name, but I like to think we share a few other special things too. Like our love of cookies, she’s famous for this recipe. She has talked me through more baking disasters than I can remember (unfortunately I didn’t inherit her patience). We’re equally great at relaxing too. And yes, it’s a talent. We can sit on the couch for hours looking at her jewelry collection and telling stories. And we both love parties. She’s having a huge 90th birthday rager today. Which, with great regret, I’m missing.
I love you Nanna and am very sorry I can’t be there. But, I can’t wait to hear all the details. Happy Birthday! xx Your namesake
One of my favorite photos of my grandmother. And a good reminder, that sometimes those shots with our eyes closed shouldn’t be deleted after all.
