My name is Elaine, but five of my favorite people call me Gramma Mac!
An award-winning writer, author, blogger, and columnist, I love to celebrate grandparenting, and have been doing so since my my first grandchild – now a teenager – was born. To read more of my “back story,” click here.
I am passionate about discovering and sharing resources with other grandparents, empowering them to intentionally create memories and build relationships with their grands.
Please share your comments, questions, and favorite grandparenting ideas. Let’s build a community.
Follow me on social media to receive my blog posts. It’s my goal to provide resources and be a “go-to” site for all things grandparenting. You’re not alone in this journey. There are more than a billion grandparents worldwide, so guess what? You’re ONE IN A BILLION.
Thanks for stopping by for a chat, and I hope you Celebrate Grandparenting…today!
Please know I appreciate you visiting my site. If you’d like to contact me, please do so. There’s a “CONTACT” button on this site.
