How cool to have photographic proof that I am this loved. The enormity doesn’t escape me. These women passed down a lot to me- faith, higher education, work ethic and a love of children. But let’s be honest, all I really wanted was those EYES.

I’m so thankful for the years I got to spend with my Granny and that my parents frequently took us city kids to the Texas farm to ride tractors and wander around in our cowboy boots…
