The F Word: [Family]

I'm getting older (393 days 'til my 30th birthday). Which means the people around me are getting older too.

Last weekend we celebrated my Grandma's 80th birthday. (she actually turned 80 in February, but she was a good sport about letting me push it back until we could have the party outside). It was a day of family, food and a few flashbacks. 

Top: Signage for the Birthday girl and my first Strawberry Rhubarb pie. It was tasty. The recipe was from MarthaStewart.comBottom: Fresh flowers my mother gathered in the neighborhood. 

It had been a few years since the family had all been together, and it was good to see how much people hadn't changed. One of my intentions in gathering everyone together was to present my Grandma with her "Moments" book— a retrospective of her life and family. A piece that she can spend time reminiscing with. 
The book was created on Blurb using their hardcover image wrap option. I spent a lot of time gathering photos and going through old albums—something I absolutely love doing. It's good to reflect, and remember the way we were. But it's also important to keep in touch, so that we still know each other tomorrow.
