October 10-18, 2015 : the week when GRAMS was here | Amanda Rose Zampelli

Grams was here from October 10th through the 19th to party with Danielle & Jerry on their Wedding Day. We were excited she arrived with BOTH shoes on, since the last time she came for her 80th birthday party, THIS happened. She stayed at mom's house, and the week leading up to the October 17th wedding, we had visitors from everywhere coming through to see her! John met her, dinners, brunches, cousins, stories of her two kitchen fires, laughs, wine, CARBS!!! ... Grams is one of a kind. She DOES NOT STOP. For 83 years old, she lets NOTHING hold her back. If she wasn't cooking, was was planning what to cook next, or rearranging mom's refrigerator, or losing her voice chatting it up with a dining table full of people.

Then, on Saturday October 17th, there was the wedding. John & I's first wedding we attended together and I couldn't have asked for more fun. He looked so handsome in his orange & black best, and my dress was a great find at Nordstrom Rack. We partied with Grams and my family, danced, dined, and took PHOTOBOOTH pictures (which will come in a separate post tomorrow). Grams fell twice trying to 'drop it like it's hot'. My cousin Lauren fell once. "Another one down on Table 8" the DJ should have announced. Anyway...so fun, and you can click through the images below.

It's eerily quiet now that Grams's returned back home to her Floridan condo, and we miss her so! She's the most most independent, strong woman I know, and she really loves it down there, so we know she's alright. Not to mention, it's a great place to spend a few days (like we did back in April). Love you, Grams! Can't wait to see you again! Stay tuned for the full collection of PHOTOBOOTH photos coming in a post tomorrow.
