Grandma was a spitfire. She did whatever she wanted and didn't care what anyone thought. She smoked where she wasn't supposed to and didn't care. When she did that for the first time in front of me, it really sank in that she was ballsy and did whatever she wanted. I've held deep pride that my grandma wasn't like other grandmas. She could tell you a dirty joke while baking you the best cookies you've ever had. She made sure to have her face on and hair perfect and certainly not grey because, really, she wasn't old. 70 years old and she was still out in her shed working her various saws and machines to make something beautiful with ugly wood. She was tough and resilient. We used to joke that she was going to outlive us all. This picture is a rare glimpse of her without her perfect face and hair. She's raw and showing me how she feels about having her picture taken in such a state. We love this picture. I'm sure she's rolling her eyes at me right now with that smirk of hers.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving. Last year, 2017, I spent two days cooking with Grandma for Thanksgiving. I'm incredibly thankful for all the time we spent together and the awesome relationship we had. I miss her so much. I sometimes forget she isn't here. I want to share news with her. I rush to answer the phone before it wakes her up. And then reality crashes down.
