With two grandparents passing away this year, there has been a lot to think about and a lot to sort out, mentally and physically. While doing just that kind of sorting, my family found this photo of my great grandfather in New York (where he originally landed from Italy and had a shoe repair shop) from 1947. I love it. From his smile to what the women are wearing behind him…it makes me wish I had been the one there taking the photo. It definitely makes me think about where I’ve come from and the new life I’m starting this year too. Old photos, new life, all the same here.
