During my visit to Nebraska last month, I was fortunate enough to be able to spend time with both of my grandmothers and decided to document a page about each.
My Grandma Schlattmann (my maternal grandmother) lives in Lincoln, and suffers from Parkinson’s Disease (among other issues). The illness has taken a lot from her over the years. She has her good days and her bad days (sadly, more bad than good) and I felt fortunate enough to get to see her on a good day. She recognized me and was able to hold a conversation, which doesn’t always happen. Moments like this are precious, because you never know if you’ll get another chance. My journaling reflects special memories of my grandma. Just random happy things I recall when I think of her.
This second layout is about Nanny (my paternal grandmother) who lives on (and still runs) her farm near Gretna. I’m sure she’ll see this photo and exclaim, “Oh God! I look like hell!” which is what she says about every photo taken of her…LOL. I personally thing she looks great and I’m just happy I was able spend time with her and capture a photo of us while I was back. Ps. If your curious about how the name Nanny came about, take a peek at the journaling on the page!
That my friends, is a glimpse at both of my lovely grandmothers. They are both amazing women, who each had a large part in my upbringing. I feel truly blessed to still have both of them in my life.
