To Grandma//Love, Riley

Grandma taught me to always pack a swimsuit and never turn down an adventure. She was so curious and adventurous, always wanting to go new places and try new things. She snorkeled at 93. Dove into her pool at 94. Sang karaoke at the local dive bar at 95. She had a hard childhood until her aunt and uncle adopted her at the age of 7, and that experience taught her to live life to the fullest. The lesson was not lost on me either. I am thankful I got to call this strong, smart, funny, kind, and curious woman my grandma.
