Beauty And Grace

I am sooo glad to get back to blogging....I need to...for my heart's sake...I will start off by showing you my favorite photo of my Aunt K.K....I called her Cake....She was a beautiful spirit....So fun to be around...Her beauty and grace warmed so many hearts....This silly smile in this photo, made you feel like everything was going to be okay....;)




She helped raise me when I was a young girl...I remember watching her every move...She was always busy...I can still see her curling her long lashes with the eyelash curler...and dusting her beautifully kept home (the smell of lemons always reminds me of her), she loved tanning (she could of been the Bain De Soliel Model), she loved Coach purses and Lancome Makeup...

She moved to Saudi Arabia, when I was 6 or 7...She loved traveling the world...I remember one time, she and her only daughter, Heather, flew to Paris just to shop...She was my Fashionista...I looked up to her and thought she hung the moon...She was my "Go To Girl" for fashion, makeup, puberty and boys...She had a way to make you feel like everything would be okay...And she was right...Everything was always okay....;)





Cake, if you can hear me~I love and miss you so...You will always be my Cake...I am sorry that you were soo sick...It was hard to let you know my heart was breaking for you...I never would of imagined the end of your life to be such a struggle...I choose to remember you, when you were happy and full of life...I think that is how you would want it, too...I know you are at peace, so I am trying to be at peace, as well...Give a kiss to my Beautiful Momma and tell Papa, I miss him so....I know Heaven is more beautiful with such an angel like you....

XoXo, Meme
