Why I love this word:
I guess talking about my grandmother in yesterday's post inspired this one. She is from my dad's side, and she is 100% Greek. I am named after her, and I simply look up to her greatly. She taught me how to speak Greek, and everything I know about being a lady. And I'm glad she did because look what I made out of it! This entire blog is dedicated to fulfilling a life as a respectable individual. Thanks yiayia. Or as the Athenos commercials would say. My blog is officially approved by yiayia.
