Life is short – we know this and are told time and time again yet until someone really close to you passes do you ever really fully comprehend just how quickly life can take a turn. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I shared the recent passing my Granny. She was such a joy to be around. I remember her laughing, always laughing and in good spirits. Her nickname for me was Miss Hollywood (since apparently I loved the spotlight as a young girl) and I always enjoyed that nickname (who wouldn’t!). She lived a great, full life and was surrounded by family as she went however I miss her already. She taught me many things throughout my life and this past weekend was spent reminiscing about her. I figured I would share the top 5 nuggets of wisdom that I will surely pass down to my children one day:
- Cashmere is always a good investment.
- Travel is more worth it than that new piece of clothing.
- You can do anything with confidence.
- Spend money on good champagne.
- Laughing is good for the soul.
A board that was full of fabulous pictures in memory of her along with a lottery ticket because you can’t win if you don’t play.
This was a gift from my cousin to my aunt (the canvas) that was appropriately on display with a bottle of her favourite liqueur. She always liked a little something sweet after dinner.
