RIP Mimi

Two weeks ago, my Mimi passed away. I am so thankful that I took Tinley to West Virginia where she lived to visit her while she was still living. I will smile every time I wear red, or read the nursery rhyme book she gave Tinley. She was the most honest woman you would ever meet in your life, and wasn't afraid to tell it like it was. I loved that about her.

Within the past 3 months, I have lost both of my grandmothers, and although I miss them both every single day, I am so thankful I got the chance to know them, and make some wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. More importantly, I was able to introduce my daughter to the both of them and take some pictures that I will always treasure. I know they are in a better place, keeping each other company, and watching over us all. 

RIP Mimi, I love you.
