Flashback Feature #13 – My Gramy

Today is my Gramy’s birthday! She is 90-something, I have lost track. Gramy to 4 and Great Gramy to my 3, she loves her family more than anything! A long time ago, before I was born, my Gramy moved from New Jersey to Arizona, where she still lives today. While it makes it more of a challenge to see her, I love visiting her in Arizona, where it is always beautiful. In honor of her birthday, here is a look back at her with some of her favorite people:

2005 - Gabbie was about 2 months old when she first met her Great Gramy:

Simon saw this picture and he said “She’s holding my baby!”

2011 & 2012 – weddings! First my cousin’s, then my brother’s:

She hasn’t aged a bit over the past 7 1/2 years since that first picture above! My Gramy is someone who I admire and wish I could spend more time with. Happy Birthday Gramy!

Happy Birthday to her!! She looks wonderful! My great aunt will be 101 this year and is still as quick as anything! I often think about how much she has seen in her life and how much I could learn from her.

Happy Birthday to her! I love the picture of you 4 ladies. I love generation photos like that. :)

Happy birthday to your gramy! That is always so awesome, when your kids can have a great-grandmother or grandfather. Sadly, all my grandparents passed away before or shortly after Sofia was born and she didn't get to meet any of them. But my hubby's grandma is still alive and ADORES Sofia. I love seeing them together. Your photos of your gramy with your kids are so precious! She looks so full of life and happiness.
