When going through some of the items at my yiayia and pappou's (grandparents) home, I stumbled across this amazing photograph. The photo is of my young yiayia (far right) with her sister and cousins. I was taken aback by the beauty of my now aging grandmother and was inspired by how impossibly chic these women were - even at the beach.
Beach hair to my yiayia wasn't tousled untouched waves, these women perfected their tresses before lounging on the sandy beaches of Greece. One of the most hard-working women I've ever been honored to know and even more privileged to share her genes, my yiayia exuded effortless glamour in everything she did.
