I love looking at pictures in my family albums. As my “abuelita”, my grandma used to say: “A picture is worth more than 1,000 words”. My grandma will always be one of the smartest people I have known. She was very wise in everything she said, and she was always right.

We could sit and look at pictures for hours, with her telling me the story behind each one. The stories my grandma shared were very captivating as are the pictures you will see in this article. These photos were chosen among hundreds of submissions from all over the world for the story the tell and the feelings they capture.
