It’s been three years …

but sometimes it feels like it’s only been a few moments. Three years ago today my grandmother passed away. We were very close … as close as a grandmother and granddaughter could be, I think. You see, my grandmother helped raise me, so we shared an extra special bond.

She was always impressed with everything I did … and always made sure to tell me so (she cried like a baby when she saw me in my cap and gown when I graduated university). She taught me how to read when I was three and walked me to school everyday until I was old enough to do it on my own. She encouraged me to dream big and not to settle for less than what would make my heart sing.

She passed on her love of Cadbury chocolate, custard, scotch mints and sticky toffee pudding to me. She was a very special lady and I miss her terribly every day.


this was one of her favourite pictures

Sorry guys, nothing crafty today, but thanks for stopping by.
