Belated Father’s Day

My grandpa (my dad’s side) and I have a special bond with one another. Since I was a child, he’s always looked after me. As far as I could remember, I used to visit my grandparents (from my mom’s side) for the summer. I was only used to visiting them for the weekend and anything longer than that brought me anxiety. After about a week, I started crying and throwing fits because I wanted to be with my grandpa. Oddly enough, my mom told me that I got so frustrated that every time that I saw an old man resembling my grandpa I cried to them. Yeah, that’s a little troubling now that I think about it.
You know what else is funny? When I moved to Las Vegas, I cried on my first month here because I wasn’t used to being apart from him. I told you we have a special bond! Cheers to the man who taught me love, stubbornness (yes, stubbornness), and respect.

  1. Congrats on making it to 1,000 followers on Insta! I just saw your cactus iphone cases and am dying! It would go so perfectly with one of my original tees that oh so eloquently says, “don't be a prick”.

    Keep up the great work!



  2. Lovely post 🙂 You've got an amazing bound with your grandpa. I've never know any of my grandfathers – neither from mother's side or father's side. But I still have a good relation with my grandmother 🙂


  3. Aw that's just the cutest.. your Polaroids are gorgeous i'm sure you will treasure them! Would love to follow each other and stay in contact, let me know! x


  4. I think it's sweet that you have such a special bond with your grandpa, and that you have polaroids taken with him! I wish him a long healthy life <3


  5. Awww that is so sweet. I have a “thing” with old people myself, I find myself drawn to them and I always attach myself to them too. Mostly because I didn't/don't get close to them growing up. I only ever met my mother's mother when I was three before she passed away and my father's mother passed away either one month or one week before we arrived overseas. My mother's father moved over here when I was younger but I was too “young” to make the most of it. He passed away nearly ten years ago now and there isn't a day that goes by that I wish I had made the most of it. And as I've gotten “older” (groan) I've started noticing traits in myself that he exuded. Like he was known for storytelling and writing. He was highly creative too. He used to try to tell me stories but I would sit there and not really listen, mostly because he didn't speak English and I couldn't understand. It's one of my biggest regrets. Another massive regret is that I still have a living grandfather alive. On my dad's side and I haven't seen him in over six years now. I haven't been able to get over there sadly. I'd really like to go in following months though, I feel a valid pressure to do so, he's just turned 91 and I know that if I don't get to see him now and something happens, it will really destroy me :o(
