Sunday, we had a surprise birthday party for my sweet Grandma who turned 75! The celebration was at my parents house and it was absolutely beautiful. My grandma loves flowers, so Mom went all out with beautiful fresh flowers and her Old Country Roses dishes. So elegant!











The biggest surprise of the day was that both of her sisters (from different states) flew in without her knowing! They came bursting in the kitchen after Grandma had been there for a while, and she was so excited.



It was such a sweet time to celebrate my Grandma. I made a book for her filled with pictures of the whole family and I had every one write a letter to her that I had printed in the book, as well. She loved it!

She and Momsy.


She and Weebie.


My Grandma is the perfect example to all of us girls of the family. I am so happy we had a day set aside to celebrate her!
I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.
