When I was ten-years-old, our family moved in order to live closer to Grandma, and from then on Grandma and I celebrated our birthdays together. Our birthdays are four days apart, so we often began celebrating on her birthday and ended on mine. The year I turned 12, she took me on a three day trip, just the two of us. Earlier this year, I created a Photo Album Scrapbook to commemorate that trip.
Robbie and I met shortly after Grandma passed away, so she never knew him. I know she would have loved him, and she would have been especially pleased that he has carried on the tradition of celebrating my birthday for several days in honor of her birthday. Starting that first year we were married, Robbie began giving me pre-birthday gifts - one a day for four or so days leading up to my birthday. This year is no exception: Robbie ran a few errands the other day and later this pile of gifts appeared.
I've opened a few of these packages already and my next post will be about all the goodies I found inside.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA - I MISS YOU!
