Jordana's Blog: Sparkle On, Gram!My Grammy is still alive, thank G-d. She's 96. Gram has the best jewelry. She's had two generous husbands, held a job most of her life, has traveled all over the world and taught me the meaning of an "important" piece. (A high-value piece of jewelry in weight and quality.)
Jordana's Blog: Never As GoodMy mother is a good cook. Me, not so much. I don't like cooking, it's not my thing. I do it to keep my children alive. When people say they like to cook, I secretly think they just say that because of the praise they get when someone compliments them on their cooking.

Jordana's Blog: Family VacationDon't you hate photos of happy families on an awesome vacations that you're not on? This is why people hate Facebook. Your feed is filled with other people's pics of them doing fun things and looking happy. Gag.
