Family dynamics are all different. They come in different sizes, colors and flavors.
My family is loud, loving, passionate and loyal with big personalities. You’d think we were Italian, but no. More often than not, we’re talking over each other and sharing each other’s food. It’s taken my husband almost 19 years to understand us, but I think he gets us now. We love each other no matter what.
This past weekend I left my hubs and 3 baby girls to go on a long day trip with my mom, dad and 2 sisters. It was like the old days again, trucking through the great farmland of Iowa, just us 5. While snuggling by my uncle’s warm fire, we belly laughed as we recalled the glory days. Old videos & a glass of red really hit the spot when you’re feeling sentimental. The stars of the show were my late beloved Grandparents. They were full of life; dancing, living and laughing up on the screen. They left us with such fond memories and a great appreciation of all things musical.
All of these memories left me feeling so blessed and warm right down to my core. Something even 20 below can’t freeze.
I have this sweater, the Grandpa sweater. I love it. It’s warm, big, a little loud and packed with personality. I get to think of my Grandparents every time I put it on. Lucky me.

It’s fun for me to bring emotion and life to my clothing, it makes it WAY more interesting to get dressed each day! Do you have emotions or memories tied in your clothing? Any special pieces that make you instantaneously smile?
