So I went down to Jackson to see my grandparents. When we got there- I dragged my boyfriend along- they gave us both Easter baskets with candy and chocolate! My Nanny and I went through a lot of old things- her grandmother’s hair pins, her sweetheart pin from my Pappy, this really awesome penny Pap carved- he took everything but the rim and Lincoln’s head out. It looks awesome! I got to see a quilt her mother started, it’s just the pieces. She’s says she’s going to finish it and if she doesn’t, then I’ll get it to finish. We went through her old jewelry- I got some bangle bracelets and some gaudy but gorgeous earrings and then she gave me a cameo charm to wear on my wedding day! It was just a very special day!
We had roast, and green beans with bacon drippings, squash casserole, biscuits and “poor man’s potatoes” with strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was divine!
