I grew up visiting her and thinking nothing of her quaint little home. Every corner of this house has a story and character! I love who my grandma is.
She was born and lived in Sampigny, France until she met my grandfather who was in the military (she at age 19). They got married, moved to America and traveled with the military. He passed away in Manhattan, Kansas and she has lived here ever since. Her brother from France comes to visit her once a year and you can tell she misses France. I'm so grateful to have grown up with her so close and to learn from her. She walks everywhere (doesn't have a car), loves animals especially cats, just fun to have a conversation with and always gives a kiss on the cheek and expects one back. I'll include a video at the end of the photos for you to see her talk.
