I am so excited to share another Mother’s Day interview with you! If you missed the first one, you can find it here. Addison and her Bubbie are locals here in San Luis Obispo, CA. Addison works at a local boutique and her grandmother is a painter. How cool is that?! All the pics were taken at Bubbie’s house. The love between these two is so visible in these pics–and it warms my heart.
Growing up, what is a favorite memory of your grandmother?
When my grandparents lived in See Canyon, my Bubbie used to take my brother, Eden and I out on adventures. She would begin by telling us a made up story about what we were doing or looking for. Often times we were looking for buried treasure or hunting fairies. We would spend hours playing pretend and tramping through the creeks, collecting mushrooms and rocks. My Bubbie has an amazing imagination.
How has your grandmother impacted your life / What do you most admire about her?
She has always marched to the beat of her own drum. She’s chosen to do the things she loves most and puts her heart into everything she does. She has inspired me to do the same in my life. She does everything with love and she has taught me to love unconditionally.
What is your favorite thing to do when you get together?
Honestly, talk. She has so much wisdom and knowledge, when I am with her I try to soak up any bits and pieces of it that I can. I love walking away from a conversation with her feeling like I could conquer the world. But we also love to go antique shopping together and I absolutely love watching her cook.
Do you have a funny story or memory you would like to share?
Bubbie, is a funny story. She is a true wild child and she hasn’t stopped testing the waters since the day she was born, I think. Let’s say I have way to many funny stories to tell and none that she would approve of me telling. She is just wonderful.
What makes her better than any other grandmother?
She is so many things wrapped into one lady, a cook, a gardener, a painter, a dancer, a giver, a fighter. She is the best because she is Bubbie, anyone who meets her instantly agrees and instantly falls in love with her. She just radiates love, that’s what makes her the best.
Addison, thank you for sharing your grandmother with us! You both have such a spark and I love seeing inside your special relationship.
