After my grandma passed, I was going through all of her old things and found a ton of photos from her childhood and teenage years. I have become obsessed with looking through them. It’s amazing to see her in a different light, I’ve only known my grandma in her adult years, so it’s so nice to see her as a teenager with so many friends and happy memories in these photos.
I also found photos of my great-grandparents, news articles, and even postcards, these are literally treasures to me. To be able to hold and view a frozen memory from a time before I was even born gives me a warm feeling inside.
