When You Don’t Belong
Last weekend we had a party for my grandmothers 90th birthday. 90 is such a huge milestone that not many people get to reach. I am lucky enough to still have both of my grandmothers. My Nanny turned 90 last March and my Grandma turned 90 last weekend.
When you have an event like a 90th birthday party, take lots of pictures. We did exactly that, to make sure we have plenty of pictures to look back on when she isn't with us anymore. If there is one thing I could do, that is have more pictures of and with my Grandpa and Pawpaw. In looking at all of the these pictures we took, I noticed one thing. I don't look like anyone on my Mom's side of the family. My mom and I took a a selfie a few years ago and I could definitely tell then that there were shared facial features with my mother. As you can see, I stick out like a sore thumb. My sister and I are polar opposites when it comes to looks and personalities. She has dark hair and dark eyes, she is also an introverted person and we all know I don't. She and I don't have the same dad, so that is probably one reason but again share nothing of my mother. Sometimes my sister will make a face that looks just like my mom.
Now lets switch to the other side of my family, my Dad's side and you can definitely tell where I belong. I look just like my Nanny and my aunt and my Dad. It is so crazy how much I look like them. I took a picture on snap chat yesterday using an aging filter and OMG, I look just like my Nanny. That makes me very happy because I think she is beautiful and it also means I will age well.
Look at this picture and you can definitely tell who I look like.
