This weekend

My family celebrated the birthday of the family matriarch, my Grandma! We had an amazing time and I got to see so many friends and family members. It was suppose to be a surprise but that old lady didn't let it go down like that, though I think she was pleasantly surprised to see people from South Carolina made the trip to celebrate with her.

During the celebration people were asked how long they've known my Nana and how did they meet, it was interesting to hear some of the stories. I knew she had touched our lives and without her we wouldn't be the women we are now but to hear other people tell the same stories made us tear up. I'm truly blessed to have my Nana around giving me advice (even the unwanted advice), to talk and laugh with and just have around. She's a pretty awesome lady! 

And now you understand why we are so fancy! It runs in our blood *snaps fingers*

Oh yea, Nana seems to be quite fancy, indeed! I'm glad you guys had a great time. Sounds like she deserved that party and so much more. Happy Birthday, Nana!
