Mike and I are technically on vacation (or a staycation, really) right now, but it has been a long time since I posted last. We haven't been home much in the past two weeks, so I need to catch up.

As some of you know, my grandmother passed away last week after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Although she moved away a few years ago, and I didn't see her nearly as much as when I was little, she will be greatly missed. Just a few things I remember about her:

1. She could sew a mean jumper…I have pictures from the 90s to prove it.
2. When I was a teenager, I wanted to get my ears pierced a second time, and she said that she would take me when my mom wasn’t looking. I’m pretty sure that she told me we would go to an R-rated movie on the way home, too. She was nothing if not adventurous.
3. I think she was the only person I knew that had make-up tattooed on her face. No lie. Lip liner and eye liner. That's just how she rolled.

I love you, Grandma Sherry!

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my grandfather to pancreatic cancer my freshman year at Baylor.
