we don't usually do to much to celebrate. my birthday is just the week before, restaurants are packed, & flowers are overpriced on that day.
this year we did a different kind of celebrating.
b made the ultimate sacrifice & agreed to spend too much money, have a hectic weekend, and fly with me and the boys to northeastern ohio (what a romantic spot, eh?)
to celebrate love.
the love of a grandma that is.
my sweet grandma flo turned 95 (!) on friday & this weekend was all about her.
we had an entire restaurant reserved for her birthday meal & family flew in from denver, boston, seattle, texas -- just for her. then we headed back to her place (yes, she still lives on her own) to indulge in homemade cake & ice cream. sunday at church they had a special video honoring her life (when i get a copy, i'll post it -- complete with embarrassing mid-80s photos of all the cousins).
happy birthday gram!
