for baba.

IMG_1-2

followers of hello scarlett may remember this post that i wrote in honour of my baba. at that time, her heart attack had only recently occurred, and she was slowly getting back onto her feet. i wrote it in hopes that we would be able to continue our weekly shopping trips, and because she more than deserved the attention and the surprise of finding herself on the internet.

this last sunday, my baba passed away.

i will never be able to describe what she meant to each and everyone that she knew. i will say that i will never forget our hilarious excursions, watching ‘i love lucy’ in the hospital, or spending weekday afternoons together (i was her home care and she was my entertainment).

my baba was such an amazing woman. she loved her family, and relished any company to come her way. she was funny. she was a fighter. she appreciated life and would not take no for an answer. i can only imagine what sort of trouble she is getting up to in heaven with her late husband, and with everyone who has passed on before her. i do know that our lives here will not be the same without her. 

i love and miss you, baba.

  1. Sorry for your loss! Please accept my condolences. Lovely testimonial for your baba. She seemed sweet.

    I’m so sorry for your loss, a beautiful post xx

    • thank you samantha.

      yesterday i turned one of her favorite shirts into a beautiful dress just so that i can always wear a piece of her (and that someone goes on wearing something that she owned). it will, of course, be on the blog soon.

      :-)

  3. So sorry to hear – but how beautiful your tribute to her.

  4. Oh I’m so sorry for your loss. Your baba sounds like she was an amazing lady and I’m glad you have so many wonderful memories to remember her by!

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every waking and spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
