My amazing grandmother turns 90 this week, but we celebrated over the long weekend so as many of her 6 children and 18 grandchildren could make it as possible. She continues to live an incredible life, knowing more about sports, politics, history, people and life than anyone I know. She remembers everything and everyone and ceases to amaze me on a daily basis.

One of the first taste testers of Reality Bites, Ellie, as my dad fondly called her, is my inspiration to live as gracefully and selflessly as she does. 

After a few of us helped her blow out the candles, it was a group effort to almost finish off this cake. I didn’t bake it- I’m sticking to cupcakes- but I will admit it was delicious. Do you think it was big enough?!

Overall the day was fittingly special, filled with wonderful conversation, cousins, cocktails and of course, cake. I can’t imagine a better person to celebrate.
