This week my grandmother turned 90 years young. She has always been a big part of my life, especially since she lived just a few minutes away from where I grew up. She is by far the most outgoing and friendly person I know, and she has had a (big) hand in every family reunion. Her birthday party last weekend was no exception – 35 of her closest family and friends all came together in Arizona (where she and my grandpa spend the winters these days) to celebrate her birthday.
We celebrated all weekend long – one night with a crab dinner (brought specially from Alaska by my uncle), during the day by lounging with drinks at the pool, some took the opportunity to hike in the desert, and it culminated in a Sunday lunch with good food, great toasts, and the best company.
Also, have you ever seen 90 candles on a cake??
Happy birthday to my Grandma – having such a wonderful and inspiring woman in my life has no doubt helped me become who I am today.
