This is where I get my coolness from~

I have been recently scanning and going through all of my mom's photos and collecting memories from them. I love seeing my mom, my grandparents and great grandparents when they were younger and seeing where I got all my good looks from hehe. there's something about all these old photos that makes me feel ten times closer to my family. As much as I try to act like my family hasn't impacted me, I now realize that they, especially the women in my family have had the greatest impact on my life. My great-grandma, who we just call Sugar because she insists she hates being called grandma or granny, tells brilliant stories of our family in better times. I want my family in current times to go back to this. good stories, not bad ones. I want to bring nothing but good to my life and show that everything anyone has done to me is for goodness. I want to post a ton more photos, but im going to save them for another post, where you will see how much my mom and I look like we could be twins and how all the women in my family practically could all be sisters.
