Looking back, there are certain traits about my grandma’s house that remind me of all of the precious times I spent there. I didn’t appreciate those memories then, but nowadays when I think about it, I really do cherish those fond memories. In the words of a wise songstress, “Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone?” That line could easily apply to this notion of mine. This also furthermore leads me to present this list of the general tropes of grandma’s house that all of us so warmly remember.
