Celebrating 85

Today marks the 85th birthday of an incredibly special lady, my grandma. She's truly one-of-a-kind. Loving, generous, patient, strong, determined, kind, selfless...just a few of her countless characteristics. I'm so blessed to have such a close relationship with this remarkable woman. 

Since her birthday falls on a "Throwback Thursday," it seems appropriate for me to take you on a little stroll down memory lane...
