This past week I visited my hometown in California. It turned out that our last-minute trip was actually perfect timing…it was my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary! As we were leaving their anniversary party, my grandma hugged me and whispered, “Only 59 more years for you two!” My grandparents’ life together is an inspiration and a testimony that love can last a lifetime. I look forward to spending the next 59 years with Mike.
My grandma and my mother were the first people who really got me into crafting in the first place. I was reminiscing with my mom this weekend about my favorite dress…made by her for Christmas when I was young. It matched my sister’s! I also remember going to my grandma’s house to make aprons and gifts for my family. She taught me how to sew and embroider. I like to think that my grandmother made the dress she is wearing in the picture above.
This weekend I also went to the Huntington Gardens with my mom, sister and aunt. It is so beautiful I just can’t describe it! Besides the natural beauty of the place, there are many details that I enjoy taking in. Maybe I will use them for some inspiration for future projects.
Oh, and did I mention their greenhouse!? If only I had the room for one of these babies!
That’s my sister, Allison, with my Aunt in the background! We had such a great time together.
