I loved getting to live with granny as an adult for two years! We shared so many stories. She loved to just sit and talk. My favorite was when she sat on the back deck with me and gave me life advice.
My friends and I threw her a surprise party for her 87th birthday! She said it was her first surprise party!! It was such a special memory! I loved seeing her face light up when she realized Kristin’s house was decorated for her!
I was also able to give her a Easter basket when she was 86. She said it was her first Easter basket. ❤️
