"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the detail of how he lived that distinguishes one man from another." -Ernest HemingwayHi, friends. I hope you all had a great weekend. If I'm being 100% real with you, this weekend was rough for myself and the family. Saturday morning my Grandma Cooley passed away at the age of 89. She had been very sick for the past couple of years with the blood pressures, a failed kidney, and dementia. It has been a tough season for my mom, my uncle, and the rest of the family but I believe in celebrating life and cherishing all the amounts of love and joy my grandma gave to everyone she encountered. I learned so much from her and about loving myself and finding the good in everything. Because of my grandma's passion for baking, she taught my mom to bake, which in turn, taught me. I will always cherish times when my grandma, my mom, and myself would work diligently in the kitchen constructing homemade raviolis for Christmas dinner. I will miss her impeccable feet, the way her bony hands would crimp the edges effortlessly. Her memory will live on her in recipes, each crafted with love, care, and butter. Thank you Grandma for teaching me these lessons. I will keep them close and never let them go.
