Dancing with my great-grandmothers, Maddalena and Charlotte when I was two. They were of such different Italian and English backgrounds yet had much in common in their day-to-day lives really. This is my only picture of the three of us. Apparently, from when I was very little I loved to dance and often got people up to join me!
Most of all, I love the joy in this old photograph and am so touched by the generosity of two women in their eighties in getting up to dance for their great-granddaughter. Wishing you much joy. xx

What a beautiful photo – love the joy it captures (and, of course, the ringlets)!
Thank you! Love the beautiful expressions on their faces. (And if only I still had those curls!)
Grazie mille, Debra! x
