A Pictured Past

I love this photograph of my grandmother. I have it framed and sitting on top of my dresser, so I can see her everyday. It's hard to picture my grandmother looking so stylish and young. When I was born she was already 65, a mother of 4 and grandmother of 8, and her days of being young and hip were long behind her. I like to imagine the reason behind this photo; like where was she going that day, was that her favorite coat, what's making her smile so big? I just love seeing her face every morning, it makes me happy. The recipe is in her handwriting too and I love that her penmanship is familiar as her face. It's also making me very hungry for a slice of her apple crisp.

P.S. I could totally rock my grandma's style with this coat right here
