remember

22 Apr

fedora: Forever 21, jacket: (gift) Armani Exchange, blouse: secondhand, tank: Down East Basics, jeans: (seconhand) Old Navy, flats: (not seen) Target, necklace: (seconhand) grandmother's

Our grandma passed away last Sunday.  I wore her necklace today sort of as a memorial.  Whenever I wear it I think of her.  The way her hands felt, the sound of her voice.  The things I learned about her, like that she could listen to a song and play it by ear, or that she raised her four children after her husband died when my dad was six.  She was a teacher, and she will continue to teach.

I can’t find another picture of her right now, but this is her on the right:
