Growing up she always made arroz a la valenciana and arroz con leche. (pic 4-5) - What does your abuela like wearing the most? She loved lavander and purple.

I think is was the night I slept over, I painted her nails and then went to get something and cut myself. she was worried but laughed at me and told me I have to be careful.
