  • This is my why.
This is why I stay inside each night with my family. This is why I wash my hands every hour. This is why I FaceTime my  friend instead of seeing her in person. This is why my Granda doesn’t need to go into a nursing home. This is why I came home from NewYork. This is why I can look on the bright side even when it’s easier to be negative. This is a Physical pandemic. People are physically unable to breathe and are coughing with a fever. People are on ventilators relying on a machine and have nobody next to them. People are dying in their masses. This is extremely tragic. But the silent killer isn’t physical. The people who ARE able to breathe on their own are waiting by their phone for a quick call. Hold their tablets in their hand waiting for someone  to FaceTime with. They jump at the noise of their phone bleeping with a new text. CHECK ON YOUR FRIENDS and NEIGHBORS and especially your older family members. We can be physically well and mentally unstable. MIND YOUR MIND. Reach out. NANA T is my why and why I cant wait for all this all to be over so I can hug her. For now, waving through the window or distant chats in the garden will suffice. Let’s do the PHYSICAL things we are asked to do that we can all be reunited soon and so that when we do, nobody is missing, because of PHYSICAL or MENTAL illness. #ifyoufeelupsetreachout #nevertakeitforgranted mindyourmind #mentalhealth #grandparents #checkonyourfriends #checkonyourpeople #checkonyourgrandparents #familyovereverything

  • So another amazing pictures sent by @karina__noemi who said "
 My grandmother “Donna” was actually in love with another man who unfortunately was very sick. So her mother “Sixta” decided it was better for her to marry another man. “Donna” had many admirers, amongst others “Pedro”, Sixta’s favorite. So my grandmother married my grandfather Pedro in 1956. He was a handsome ladies man and gave my grandmother a hard time but in the end she fell in love with him. They were married for over 50 years until they died in 2010 and 2013. They had a total of 9 children. The second child is my mother Gladys."
Where are them from? ❤️
She also asked me to tell you this : " As a child I loved to listen to my grandfather (Pedro) stories. He had some eerie stories from when he was a truck-driver. I decided to make a video about his paranormal experiences which will air tomorrow on YouTube, 05.04.2020, 8pm (CET). @Reallifemystery2020
Thank you
Karina 💜" thank you for sahring🙏 So guys you can see more of this stories tomorrow in YouTube. Go see the @reallifemystery2020 and watch Karina grandfather stories ❤️

  • Who doesn’t love a nice cold glass of sweet ice tea on these hot days!  And my grandmother made THE  BEST hands down! No matter how many times I try, mine pales in comparison to hers. It’s like she used some special pot and stuck her finger in it! .
.

What I wouldn’t do to have just one more glass on her front porch!! I miss her so much, and I am so grateful for the time we had together. .
.
Call your grandparents, aunts; uncles and tell them you love them!  Life is so short, and the future is unknown! .
.
.
.
I love you and miss you MawMaw!

  • Dia 22: LOS ABUELOS
.
No hay pandemia que mitigue mi veneración por ellos. .
Llamadme loco pero sé de sobra cuando están al teléfono, igual que cuando vamos a su casa y media hora antes de llegar ya estoy cardíaco perdido.
.
Será por su tono de voz, sus cariños, su forma de ser...(o puede que por sus tuppers 😜, pero por ellos)....MA - TO
.
Ojalá pueda lamerlos pronto ♥️

  • The #lockdown has been hard on many of us, especially those of us who cannot visit grandparents... so here's something we can do. Measure the whole #family on a portable height chart, roll it up and send it in a gift package! They can see just how much your little ones have grown. 💕💕💕 #heightchart #heightcharts #springbaby #newbaby #growthchart #memories #growingup #madeformums #mumlife #mummy #grandparents #quarantine #quarantinelife #quarantineartclub #quarantineactivities #grandparentsarethebest #grandparentsarethebest #grandparentslove #grandparent #grandma #grandmalove #lockdownlife #familytime #indoorplay #stayhome #stayinghome #stayinside #familyfun

  • My great grandfather landed on March 3, 1903 in Brooklyn - NY. He arrived from Sicily when He was 21 years old with a boat that left Palermo on Febraury 2 of the same year. Thus began the American dream 🇮🇹🌺🇺🇸

  • Finding ways to keep busy...💻🧳🕵🏻‍♂️👵🏻... I can now identify a actual person or family from which each of my percentages come from. When I received my initial DNA results, I had no idea how all these places made up my DNA results. I now know why my family immigrated from one place to the next and I feel like I really understand my family history story better than ever. The authentic story of me and how I came to be is all right here. Honoring the memory of my ancestors has been present in my life since I remember. I never asked myself why because it was as natural as breathing. I grew up surrounded by fascinating stories and objects that left little to imagine: portraits, photographs, and other objects shaped my vision of these people who lived before me and who did everything possible for me to be here and now. I wish I would of asked more questions when my parents were alive. I am fascinated by my finding at ancestry.com! Happy Saturday furiends -

  • I read a question the other day asking what’s the first thing you’ll do once this is all over? 
My immediate answer is that we’ll take the boys to see my mum and dad straightaway. We’re all missing them so much, and the boys are asking for them all the time. 
Normally we see them at least three times a week so they’re a huge part of the boys’ lives. It feels wrong to not be seeing them. I know some people are standing on doorsteps or waving through windows but my boys just wouldn’t understand why they couldn’t go in and play (and eat a party ring!), so I’m not going to put any of us through that. 
My mum told me the other day she’s worried they’ll forget her, which is the most ridiculous thing as she’s their most favourite person ever, but it still made me feel so sad. She’s missing them so much. I’ve been poorly with a chest infection and normally she’d be the first to help out and take them off my hands - and love every second. (me too)

So I’m sending her photos every day, we FaceTime every other day, and she’s sending the boys random and lovely things in the post all the time. 
I’ve never once taken my parents and the help they give me for granted. I’d not have survived three babies under 2.5 without them! But now I think I’ll appreciate them even more. 
Jeez, I wish this whole shitstorm would just hurry up and piss off, don’t you?

What's the first thing you're going to do?

  • Lockdown Day 12 - Memories, life celebrations and resourcefulness ❤
☆
It's the weekend. I'm not at work 🎉 Sounds kinda odd to say, when most people haven't left home for two weeks 🏡🛋 Although tiring, this week has thankfully been less eventful than week one 💁‍♀️
☆
I spent some time in the garden. It looks amazing 🌿 The sunny weather has worked its magic, there's so much colour! ☀️✨ 🌷
Today marks 20 years since I lost my Nanna 👵❤ With all the current bad news, it isn't a day for sadness.
☆
Nanna loved spring and daffodils 🌱🌼 I picked some of my favourites from the garden, to display indoors 💛💐 A floral celebration for the life of a truly inspirational woman ❤
☆
Taking a lil stroll down memory lane . . 👵👧
Nanna always had the best recipes, most of them were adaptions she made during WW2 and kept 👩‍🌾 🥧🍰 She instilled resourcefulness in me from a very young age.
Now it seems, it's my turn to adapt. To use what food I have, wisely and creatively. I wonder if I'll also be using those recipes years from now? 🥕🥦
☆
Inspired by those memories, I took two sorry-looking apples and transformed them into a Cinnamon Apple cake 🍎🍰 Pudding for the next week 💁‍♀️
☆
My thought for today. . 💭 Be the things you loved most about the people who are gone ❤❤❤

  • This was my grandparent's butcher block and center island in their kitchen. I have no memory without it, so it has to be older than me. When my grandmother passed away I was gifted this from her estate. I finally gave it a light sand and rubbed it down with butcher block oil. I didn't do the legs to keep some of the history intact. I didn't want to fully sand down the top, because I like the knife, burn, and oil ring marks. Looking forward to making more memories with this!

  • I love my grandparents so much 😍 My grandma told me to go look outside, I run out and she's dressed like a bunny 🐰 She loves Easter, she's sad because no one can come over this year. But I'm thinking she can dress up and chill in the front yard and y'all can drive by and honk for her 🤔 what do y'all think?

  • #genealogyphotoaday “my favorite picture” My grandad with my daughter, February 2013, Rüdesheim. 
Grandad had met her before we moved to Germany the previous year, but didn’t remember, and talked about how much he wanted to see her. With the same determination he showed throughout his life, he announced to my dad and stepmother one day he was going to Germany to meet his great-granddaughter, goddammit. His memory was failing, but there was no forgetting something so important, and no dissuading him. Dad and stepmother knew that if they could help him travel, this was the only chance. He was 85, and though still strong, wouldn’t be able to make another trip, even with help when the dementia fully took hold. So they cashed in miles, and made the journey with Grandad all the way from California. 
As soon as we met them outside our apartment, with an urgency to make sure he wouldn’t forget, Grandad pulled out a snuggly teddy bear for my daughter, and told her she was a clever girl. 
On this day, I took the family to nearby Rüdesheim. Grandad asked to carry my girl while we walked down a narrow cobblestone street toward the river, and set off at a pace like he wasn’t going to lose this opportunity-no one was going to treat him like a frail old man. When I caught up, they were standing on the road, Grandad smiling with all the joy in his heart, and my girl smiling at him. I pulled out my camera and got this picture.
It was the greatest gift to see the two of them spending time together. 
She had one more opportunity to see her great-grandad 3 years later, that time in California, just before he passed away.
