National Gorgeous Grandma Day

Since 1984, today is the day set aside annually to recognize women “of a certain age” whether they are Grandmothers or not. Thanks to all Nana, Grammies, and Grannies by any name for passing down traditions, wit, and wisdom… for loving and nurturing people as if it was the only thing you had to do that day or any day. So, I share my little collection of photos to celebrate the footsteps of those who lead us as we walk on this official National Gorgeous Grandma Day.

The first photo is from our wedding. I am with my Gorgeous Grandma… plus my Mom, another Gorgeous Grandma, along with my sister and her daughter… the one who first turned Mom into a Gorgeous Grandma, and my Grandmother into a Gorgeous Great Grandmother. Of course, my Mom is now not only a Gorgeous Grandma, but this October she is set to become a Gorgeous GREAT Grandma for the third time. And she remains Gorgeous Glenna Burnham forever and ever!

Another picture is of daughter-in-law Caiti… taken with all 4 Moms and Stepmoms (pre-Grandmas) at Adam and Caiti’s wedding rehearsal dinner in Savannah, Georgia in 2017.

Then in November 2021, we got the other shot with all four of us… now officially Grandmas… but always officially “Gorgeous Grandmas” regardless.
