That evening we went to my Aunt and Uncles house for my Grandmas (MawMaw) birthday! Sadly, not all of the family was able to make it, but we had a great time anyways. We had some good food, great laughs and of course, lots of card games ;)
Check out my mawmaw - seriously, isn't she just gorgeous? I hope I age like her - she's 75 people!
Here she is with her 3 kids- Danielle, Valerie (my mom) and Jody.
I don't think I could convey to people how much my mawmaw means to me...we have always had this unexplainable bond that I have never had with anyone else. I know this sounds weird but she is literally the person in my life that no matter how defeated or awful I feel just being in the same room as her makes me better....it gives me peace and comfort - like eating a big ole plate of comfort food - mawmaw is my comfort food! ha When I was little we lived right next door to her and my pawpaw and I would spend every single day with her. We would spend the day making mud pies, swimming and watching re-runs of woody woodpecker - or the "Joy of Painting" with Bob Ross - "happy little trees" bahahah. Once in school, we moved to Pennsylvania (my dads job transfer) and let me tell you every single night I would cry for mawmaw. My pawpaw wrote a poem one time and it in he made a joke about how when I moved "mawmaw almost died" - well the feeling was mutual! ha If you have been blessed with knowing this amazing woman consider yourself lucky - she is one of a kind.
I love this last picture its of my two favorite people in the world - they are just precious!
Happy Birthday MawMaw
