There’s got to be some secret society of grandparents, an elite club you join when you become a grandparent. I’ve never seen it happen but, from what I can tell, it gives you license to stock your cupboards with cookies and calm the craziest chaos with a warm and simple hug. It’s a superpower I recall from all of my grandparents, one I see now in our kids’ grandparents and one I’m looking forward to many, many…many years from now.
Jamin and Jeff both lost their Moms to cancer but were watching over them on their wedding day a few weeks ago. Some would even say, and I would have to agree, that it was their Moms that brought them together.
When we showed up, it took no time at all to realize the bond between Jamin and her Nanny. From the rings passed down to Jamin and Sally, the cake topper and the meticulously detailed journaling she did, we knew Nanny was going to play a big role in the day. So much so that I really wanted to do this kind of a blog after I saw some of the final shots.
These hands have many stories. This is one of them.
