ја тебе волим баба
today i lost my grandma, my Baba. She was the strong, stubborn matriarch of our modest family.
A woman who was integral to my development, one of her perpetual sayings was "Go and travel (she was adamant i just 'shouldn't look at my credit card bill'). Material possessions have little value over time, but experiences traveling can't be substituted"
She had a love of conversation, a love of card game and an even greater love of ice cream (31 Flavors, specifically). She would take the three of us kids to the park to feed the ducks bread, but at the bakery she would whisper to us to pick out a treat for ourselves (c'mon hostess snowballs). She had unconditional love for us, was proud to call us her family and could bring levity to any situation.
