One of my most distinct memories from family vacations was how welcoming my grandmother was when we would visit her in Arizona over spring break. She went beyond being a good host, she made my entire family feel at home. We would walk into a completely spotless house that was full of pictures of us. It would be specially cleaned just for us so our allergies to her cat would not act up. She would make sure to stock up on our favorite foods of the time like Eggo waffles and Kraft mac and cheese.
