After having four kids, my mom wanted another.

Instead, my father got a new puppy for her.

Well, they celebrated

and fornicated,

and now my siblings have a new brother.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.

Sincerely,

the loving granddaughters

Picture-perfect Songs For Your Summer Playlist

Summer is full of long days and even longer nights with those who you would call your closest friends. The best way to capture and to create memories is with a song everyone connects with. Each and every one of us should make our own summer playlist that reminds us of how to enjoy life during the best season of the year.

A song can fit the scene of any mood. Specifically, one for the road trips to endless locations with your girl gang or laid-back tunes when you're laying next to poolside. There is a song for any moment. Even those late nights when you wish that special someone could be right next to you remembering that instance.

If you're in need of desperate help on how to correctly jam out this summer and it makes it the best one yet, well here are my go-to's.

These songs will indeed catch everyone's attention. Especially, these 8 songs. I don't know about you, but I feel like everyone knows the lyrics to these songs and it makes everyone's night 10 times better. I mean talk about some classics; you can't go wrong with these.

  • Tongue Tied by GroupLove
  • Kill The Lights by Alex Newell
  • Electric Feel by MGMT
  • Body by Luxury
  • Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi
    • Preferably the extended Steve Aoki remix.
  • Mr. Brightside by The Killers
  • UCLA by RL Grime
  • Lucy By Bryce Fox
    • Spotify doesn't have the Ryan Dominic remix, but YouTube does! So, try it out because the original is way too slow and the remix just tops it.

Here are some other songs to play when you are surrounded by your loving yet crazy squad of girls. These next ones will definitely make your friends go wild.

  • Juice by Lizzo
    • You can't go wrong with any song made by her, she carries her music with such a feminist taste.
  • I Wish I Missed My Ex by Mahalia
  • Go To Town by Doja Cat
  • Bad Guy by Billie Eilish
    • Every girl's inner dark side will come out once this turns on.
  • Boo'd Up by Ella Mai

Summer is the best time to play country music in my eyes. It's the only season that seems fitting since every song is about fishing, cold ones, dirt roads and girls in sundresses. Let's be real does anyone ever drop their tailgate and have a party in a hay field? I'm from Iowa and all it is is garage parties or bonfires. So, if you do hit me up because I would love to experience a moment like the country music videos.

  • Get Along by Kenny Chesney
  • Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton
  • Tequila by Dan + Shay
  • GIRL by Maren Morris
  • Beautiful Crazy by Luke Combs
  • Look What God Gave Her by Thomas Rhett

There are certain types of songs that everyone just can't get away from. They make you want to let loose with your friends and rap a few verses. There is a feeling of young and free while it lasts.

  • Elastic by Joey Purp
  • Earfquake by Tyler, The Creator
  • Groceries by Chance the Rapper
  • Star by Bazzi
  • I've Been Waiting For by Lil Peep

Lately, I've been on an EDM kick for some odd reason, but I thought I should share some that I really enjoy listening to.

  • Good Nights by Whethan
  • It's Strange by Louis The Child
  • Making Luv To The Beat by WATCH THE DUCK
  • Love on Me by Galantis
  • Weekend by Louis The Child
  • Tell Me You Love Me by Galantis

Then there are some songs essential for those chill vibes. They will fit the mood when you're trying to relax at the moment or when you are thinking about those you really wish you could be with at the time.

  • In My Head by Odie
  • Vibe by MELVV
  • Goodie Bag by Still Woozy
  • Basement Jack by Steve Lacy
  • Princess Bubblegum by Haroinfather
