Here's a little collection of snapshots from this past year (and a half), taken while visiting my 95 year-old grandmother. My oldest sister, Rebekah, was her caretaker for the last little while and I showed up to assist every month or so. Though, I did very little of the work, it was a big part of my year and I enjoyed capturing granny on my phone when I visited, listening to her old-fashioned language, watching her put her hair in curlers and then into a gingham kerchief to set, seeing her make English scones, learning how to take a proper English tea, and invetibly engaging in a banter about politics or feminism or my lacking cooking and caretaking skills. Haha! Thanks for the fun, Granny! I have so much respect for those who watch after older folks. I am not a natural caretaker, given that I am a youngest child. So a big applaud for all of you caretakers with a huge shoutout to my Rebekah and Mom for all their amazing work!!
*Just a note, granny prefers not to be seen in her kerchief, but I explained I wanted to capture this old-fashioned ritual, rarely seen now days! She's usually very glamorous. xo

i love the photo of her hands so much. beautiful and reminds me of my grandmother, an avid baker
She is beautiful.
These pictures are fabulous… So wonderful that your granny is still able to do so much at the ripe age of 95
Yes indeed! Celebrate our elders. Would love to sit and chat with cones and tea. Great post. 🙂
Your photos are so beautiful and touching. I especially love the one of her hands working with the dough.
These also make me miss my own grandmother who died when I was ten.
This might be my very favorite post.
Just beautiful. You are so lucky to have two amazing grandmothers–thank you for sharing them with us!
