I got a call from my grams last night. Nothing out of the blue just a nice little chat. We actually talk on a weekly basis and sometimes even a daily basis. I know we have a really unique grandmother-granddaughter relationship. We are very close and always have been. Most of the people I know love their grandparents, but not like me. I love being around my grandma and seeing her whenever possible. I have said throughout my life she is my best friend. I am blessed to have this kind of relationship with my grams. Our conversation last night consisted of talking about the weather, the fact that it was the first day of spring, how we both were doing nothing and bored at that moment, and trying to figure out when we would see each other next. When I was little both my parents worked so my grams watched me most of the time....at least that's honestly the only person beside my other grandparents that I remember being with most of the days. I always tell Jesse that when you live so close and spend that much time as a child with a grandparent you have a special relationship with them forever. I hope we live close to our parents when we have kids so they can experience what I have with my grandma. As I got into my teenage years and even now I will go and spend weekends at my grandmas. We will go out to our favorite spot, The Cheesecake Factory, and watch Shall We Dance or other old movies in bed as we fall asleep. She definitely keeps me laughing and entertained. We are two peas in a pod and I love that I have had my grandma as a close friend and wonderful example for my whole life. These are some pictures I came across. I have so many more pictures with my grandma, but these are the only ones I have access too.
