My parents, Márta Bolla and János Makány got married on 22 May 1965. One of my fondest childhood memory was looking at their wedding photos, they were beautiful. When I was a little girl we still had my mother's wedding gown's petticoat. I couldn't wait to put it on every year at the school's carnival.
My paternal grandmother, Ilona Pintér. Perhaps she is the reason why I love blue-eyed, dark-haired look.
My grandfather, Antal Makány, whom I inheritedd my passion for creating pretty things. He had many talents, from crafting shoes for his family to making music instruments.
The little girl in the middle is my grandmother. Next to her are my great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother.

My maternal grandparents, Etelka Harangozó and Béla Bolla got married in 1944. No one had great wedding gowns in the middle of the war. Before my grandpa was drawn, he married my grandma.
I spent school breaks at my grandmother's farm. I loved spending time with her. I always asked her to tell me tales and stories or read out to me.
Yeah, my hair was grown! All kids had long hair but mine started to grow very late. I was really anxious that I will never have long hair.
This is one of my first dresses that I can recall. Looking back, I don't think it was too pretty but it's an important memory.
When I was a kid I associated my grandmothers with their favorite things. This is how my maternal grandmother got the name „Björnis" after Bjorni, my cousin and my paternal grandmother was „Hunyis" after the her favorite pet, Hunyis the pig (on this photo).
Zsófi came to my 18th birthday. My father didn't want a pet inthe house. But they became best friends.
Officially Néró was a watchdog. He wasn't really into the mailman but really loved me.
