Memere turns 90

Recently my grandmother, known as Memere to me, turned 90. For as long as I can remember, my memere has always loved birthdays, especially the part when she gets to open presents. She is like a little girl, giddy with delight, as she anticipates what is in each package. It's always fun to put together a gift for her because she gets so excited about it. Here was this year's gift.

Scratch tickets,

Small bottles of white wine,

A bag of Hershey Kisses,

A small, personalized photo album for all her birthday party photos

And a spaghetti sauce jar, I mean vase, personalized with a tag and bobby pin, to hold some blue hydrangeas from our yard, (This idea came from Ashley Ann's blog)

All put together in a basket.

My Memere was happy!

Happy 90th Birthday Mem; wishing you many blessings in the year to come!
