Memaw // Life of Mags 2

We celebrated my grandmother's 90th birthday the other day. 'Memaw' is our strong and kind matriarch, the head of a beautiful (see photos) family. Seriously, we get cuter and cuter as we go. The great grandkids all surely have acting and modeling careers on lock...

I'm so proud to look at this woman and know I have her blood in me, and I hope I can hold tight to the idea that perhaps, then, I have hopes of being like her. I want to be brave in the face of hardships like her, I want to be bold like her, I want to love nature and the great American West like her. I want to love road trips and gardening and family like she does. She loves us all so much--she weeps when we are absent, she delights so much when we make it for visits, short or long. Oh, she's the sweetest. Take a look at her. Take a look at all the people who wouldn't be possible without her. 

Mom and Memaw, my girls, my source of beauty.
