[Jacket Anthro, Jeans and Shirt Banana, Tie my grandfather’s]
There are mornings when I forget that I no longer have grandparents. Yet when I see the ties hanging in my closet I know that last year we lost them both and now those ties serve as my constant reminder. So I wear one whenever I can, I wear it to dress up, to honor him, and to make him proud as I teach my students. He would have laughed at that and given me a smile, he was always proud of us no matter what.
