In my family, my grandparents always made sure to celebrate everyone's special day with a big to-do which normally included going out to dinner followed by cake and ice cream. With 5 siblings in our family, once everyone started getting married and having children, these gatherings got pretty crazy and in time pared down to just ice cream. I mean, who doesn't have room for ice cream... and in my grandma's words, "it just slides down the sides!"
Now that my grandma is gone, it seems sad for her special day to come and go without any fuss or festivities so I pulled together some images in order to spend a little time with with her. It is amazing how therapeutic it is to "be" with someone while working on a graphic of them!
Happy Birthday, Grandma! I miss you every single day!
