 I love restaurants, cities, buildings, fashion, movies and design that deserve to be called charming.  It doesn’t happen very often but meeting a charming person is even better.  My grandpa is the epitome of charming.  He acknowledges when you enter a room and gives his full attention.  He calls his wife “sunshine.”  When we take forever to get ready and finally make our way downstairs he says, “it was worth the wait.”  He tells us about his dreams where his name is always “Diamond Jim.”  He is constantly learning – even new technology (he recently bought a Mac iPad).  I grew up admiring his love of life and the people in it and am so grateful to know such a charming man.
