I have spent the last few weeks thinking about what I want this blog to be and how I want to do it. I’ve also been working on a few others things as well. However, I was going through some pictures in my phone to delete and I came across one that I forgot that I had taken.
So today starts a new feature on the blog: Friday Favorites. Fridays will be the day that I take personal privilege and share something that I am really into whether it be a blog, website, book, recipe, whatever. But today, I share something that is my favorite because it represents pretty much everything I have become in the last 10 years or so.
This is Grandma Polly’s book. Grandma Polly is my husband’s grandmother. She is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Strong, stubborn, kind, full of grace and love for her family, and seriously probably the hardest working woman I have ever known. Grandma has taught me how to become a better wife, a better mother, a canner, a gardener, and a MUCH better cook.
Inside this book (a vintage adhesive photo album) is the fountain of knowledge that this woman has taught me. The book contains recipes, common household tips and tricks, canning instructions and other clippings of advice that she has collected through the years.
Grandma keeps this book up high and away where no one can get to it, including her, unless she calls my tall husband, father-in-law, or brother-in-law to get it for her.
Do you have something like this in your family?
