my oma in the hague

my oma was born in 1920 in The Hague, The Netherlands.
her husband (my opa) passed away in 2004. he was the only man in her life. once a week i visit her and, if weather permits, we take a walk and we have dinner together. she is the chicest and most graceful woman i know. she is my example and inspiration.
