Last week I celebrated my birthday. I will admit, I thought it was going to be difficult not celebrating my birthday with extended family. But, Clint did his best to make sure I had a very relaxing day (at the spa) and I loved getting to talk with friends and family that I only hear from on special occasions. When I was young, birthdays meant cake, presents and sleepovers. Now, birthdays mean getting to hear from and talk with the people that mean so much to me. Turns out, you don't have to live close to family and friends to feel their love.

Tomorrow, my favorite Nanaw turns 80. It is so hard to believe that all my grandparents are around that age. Not one of them looks or acts like it. I feel extremely fortunate to still have 3 of my grandparents. It is so hard to sit and imagine life without any of them. I know because, I still miss my grandfather every single day. But tomorrow is a celebration of the life of a lady who has lived solely for others. She is the most amazing Christian woman I know. I love you Nana!

One of my favorites, Easter (not sure the year, early college days)
Last year's birthday celebration. Sure will miss being there tomorrow!
