    Sometimes it’s the most basic of guidance, like don’t be a yes man/woman, that really stick as a child when it comes from a parental unit. You’re grandma was an amazing woman, I’m sure! She’d definitely be proud of you!

      The most basic guidance is even sweeter as you age because you appreciate it so much more. Thanks for letting me talk about her all the time 🙂 I love you.

  4. Wonderful, Kachet! What awesome advice. Grandma sounds like she was a gem — a real, classy lady.

      Classy and a firecracker. I should make these a series and share some of the craziest things she said! 😉

    This is awesome, your g-ma was a smart woman! Such simple, yet perfectly put wisdom. I love that she put on lipstick to get the mail, now that’s style and class! I know she’s looking down on you and so proud and happy! Maybe her and my g-ma became friends and bonded over their love for lipstick (mine preferred pink)! xoxo, ganeeban

    My grandma always said to never leave house without clean under garments because you never know when you might get hit by a car and you don’t want them to find you with dirty choinies on. She was always funny!

    • thelipstickgiraffe says:

      That’s hilarious!! But that is sound advice! And bra straps too. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your memory, Shalee!
