My birthday is in the middle of the month so I am hardly ever home on my birthday, because I am usually off traveling somewhere on spring break.
Which is fine with me. No better way to celebrate your birthday than off on vacation somewhere.
But my birthday is also significant for another reason. 25 years ago I was born on my grandma's birthday, and we always call each other on our birthdays.
Well this year my Grandma will be out of the country so I wanted to give her an early birthday shout out!!!
Both my grandma and grandpa (well we call him Pop) have been so important in my life. They were at every school play, basketball game, softball game, honor roll assembly, birthday party, and basically any other event in my life while growing up.
I have so many special memories with them, from spending every summer at their house playing outside in the tree house my Pop built for us, to the year they took me to Newfoundland, Canada and we went whale watching. And many other memories including several cruise vacations and many, many holidays! I could list hundreds of other fun memories with them. So much of who I am involves memories with my grandparents.....and we are still making fun memories!
Along with my parents, my grandparents helped shape me into who I am today. They are the most selfless/caring people I know; always helping others out. I have learned a lot from watching them!
I am so thankful to have them in my life!
