I’m guessing that my grandmother was younger than I am today when this photo was taken… but today she turns 88.
I have many fond memories of my gram while I was growing up. We vacationed in Florida with my grandparents every year and as a special treat I would get to spend the weekend with them for my birthday which usually meant shopping at Water Tower Place (when they lived in the Hancock building), sewing practice, and eating lots of sweets. :)
She and I lived together in college as her condo was a mere mile from Eckerd. And even though we are separated by almost 60 years, we managed to become very close during those four years.
Through many boyfriends (me), a broken hip (her), and countless fights about laundry, we still remain good friends.
I love you, gram… happy 88th.
