My Grandmom and her Best Friend

 

Sometimes I don't know what to say more to describe why I love what I do and then the universe drops it in my lap. The other day on facebook's time-hop this picture came up.

This is a picture of my Grandmom, Dot and her best friend my Aunt Carole the second time my Aunt Carole married the love of her life my Uncle Ed. My Uncle Ed kept this picture framed and called them "his girls." He looked at it everyday. My Aunt Carole and Uncle Ed have both passed which still boggles my mind today.

This is one of the few photographs I have of my Grandmom and Aunt Carole together, not caught off guard by the camera. I love it more than anything because they look SO HAPPY. My Grandmom probably called out "Sex!" just before the photograph was taken. She thinks it's the funniest thing in the world to do, and I'll give it to her, it does get laughs even if everyone's uncomfortable. 

This is a wedding, but look - they are dressed up in clothes that make them feel beautiful. They have hair and makeup that they love and feel great wearing. It was a happy day to celebrate. They both looked and felt incredible and it all came together in this photograph that still sits in its frame in my house. It's priceless.
