Grandma pulled out a little photo album and started showing me pictures of my cousins. She came to a page and said, "And here is your grandpa and me on our wedding day" and then kept on flipping through like it was nothing. I had to ask her to go back and show me the wedding day picture again because I had never seen it. I loved it so much that I took a picture of it on my phone. Realizing that I might be able to get more great old pictures of her, I asked her to show me the old family pictures my parents had uploaded onto her iPad mini.
I just think it is amazing to look back at my grandparents lives and see them looking so stylish and young. Here are just a couple of the pictures that I got from my grandma. I feel like they are my history and I love that I am connected to these great people.
