How my Grammy helped me with my hair

It has been just over two months since my grandma died. She was 92. She and my grandpa were married in 1943, and raised eight kids in a tiny pink stucco house in Pueblo, Co., where they both died, he on Christmas Day 2010, she on March 11. Their lifetime of devotion to each other and their family has had a deep and lasting impact on me. She was beautiful, a devoted wife, an excellent mother, a doting grandmother and she made the best tortillas.

Sadly, I wasn't able to make it out to Colorado for her service so I was really, really touched when my mom sent me a Mother's Day package full of things that belonged to my grandma. I got a vintage cami, a peasant skirt a straw pocketbook and several scarves.  These things I will always treasure.

This scarf is one of them.

I was having a bad hair day so I just fixed my bangs, made a bun and tied Grammy's scarf around the whole shebang. It fit under my helmet, required no fussing and was easy to do.

Thanks, Grammy.
