mimosabyme When I was a kid we played with these vintage cocktail picks that adorned my grandfathers martinis, like jewelry for your drink. There were mermaids, monkeys, giraffes, donkeys and elephants. They were miniature, plastic and fabulous. While we were home for his funeral my mom found a dish full of them. What else could I do but be inspired to make jewelry?! So here's a sneak peek at what's going on over here at @mimosabyme this spring, a little sentimental and a whole lot of whimsy. My favorite part of the mermaid pendant might be every time Charlie sits in my lap and makes me sing all the Little Mermaid songs we know. 3d

mimosabyme Charlie learned how to take pictures. I found this gem of a series and while it's wholly unflattering, I now know what I look like changing his diaper from his perspective. #momlife #reallife #stilllaughing 1w

mimosabyme The night before my grandfather's funeral I couldn't sleep so I wrote about who this man was that we are missing. When I woke up I decided to read it at the service. My uncle asked that I share it here for family and friends who weren't able to make the trip. We missed seeing your faces and sharing hugs. ️ "Charles, Charlie, Mr. Boozer, Dr. Boozer, Uncle Charles, Daddy, Paw Paw, whatever you called him, he was yours.
A little barefoot boy chasing chickens, an ambitious collegiate with unlikely dreams, a professor, inventor, husband, father, a fixer, a prankster, a kid at heart.
He could tame a wild horse or kid. His tales of younger days left you either laughing in disbelief or in wonder at how he managed to survive to tell them at all.
He'd take you dress shopping for your first date or knife shopping for your first camp out. He was yours. He was a modern day Thoreau who built his own cabin in the woods and dug his own Walden lake. Adventures with him were always adventures. At our last visit he told me "You have to live your life, no one else can live it for you" it's a truth he must have learned early on because it's a truth he lived. It's hard to imagine packing so much life into 87 years but he did. He was a gift. When it came time to name my son, the only name I considered was his. A lifetime of love and affection flood my soul when I whisper "I love you Charlie". His legacy and love will live in our hearts and into more for years to come. We love you Paw Paw.

  •   cassietreuilphotography I did this for my boys when their great grandfathers passed. I'm so thankful I actually wrote it down for them to have and know who they were. Love this so much 2w
  •   mimosabyme @cassietreuilphotography there is so much more to say but at least we have a framework to fill in the gaps with stories for years to come :) 2w
  •   amystrother @mimosabyme, tears. This is lovely. 2w
  •   jennyggilbert I lost my grandfather a couple years ago and all the grandchildren got up and gave a speech on who he was, what he meant, and why we loved him so much. I made my notes on an envelope from my purse the day before because the thought of it meant he was really gone. I'm so glad I kept that worn envelope with my scribbles because I reference it often and can't wait to tell my son about him. I'm so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute to what seems like was a wonderful man. 2w
