Grandparents Day is Sunday, September 13th!

I love taking this time to highlight some of the best grandparents I know ❤️

This is Ana and she is the grandmother of Isaiah (3) and Lucy (1). Here's a little more about this awesome Nana...

What do you absolutely love about being a grandmother?

"I don’t remember my heart bursting with so much joy than I do the moments I see my grand babies’ sweet faces, hear them call out our names, Papa & Nana, or feel their tiny little arms hug my neck.  They are exhausting, don’t get me wrong, but when they leave and Jimmy and I literally fall into bed, we spend the minutes before we conk out talking about the sweet, funny, awesome things the kids did or said." 

"While many say the best part of being a grandparent is that we get to spoil them and then give them back, which is great, what I love most is that life is slower now which allows me to take in and truly treasure all the little things they do and say. The things that as a busy mom I didn’t have the time (or patience) to really appreciate in my own kiddos."

What are your favorite LJ Artisan Designs pieces?

"My favorite LJDesign pieces are in the Gratia Collection. I’m often asked about the pieces I have and I LOVE to tell people all about my very talented friend the designer.  I cherish all that you put into every piece you design. It’s quite obvious that every design is a labor of love."
