When I think of the Holidays, I think of my Grandparents. They were and always will be such a huge part of the festivities. I remember sitting at the dining room table with my Grandmothers, all of us saturated in the smell of anisette while we laughed uncontrollably at silly family stories we never tired of. And although my Grandparents have passed-I still feel their spirit all around me and wish that I could hug them right now, as tears roll down my face, tears that hold my extreme gratitude and profound loss. I remember my beautiful Mother greeting us with her sparkling smile, donned in glitter, always making sure that our home was warm and lovely and filled with an abundance of food that was made with lots of love.
