Today is Grandparents day! I was lucky enough to spend last weekend with my Nana celebrating her 80th birthday! This lady is one of my favorite people on the planet. She is so funny and so selfless. At 80 she is still volunteering multiple days a week and works tirelessly with veterans. She served as the National President of the Society of Military Widows until recently. She is a rockstar and I hope I am half as cool as she is when I’m her age. We gathered in my hometown last weekend with nearly the whole family (her five children, all but one of her grandchildren, and all of her great grand kids!). In addition over 40 extended family and friends showed up! Did I mention this was all a SURPRISE? She had NO idea we had all come in to town to see her and she was completely shocked when she came into the restaurant and saw all her loved ones gathered to celebrate her. What a joyous day that was!
I also want to make a special note to thank VistaPrint. They have the BEST customer service I’ve experienced in a while. I ordered that gorgeous birthday sign from them (20% off using THANKS20 at checkout!) but was afraid it wouldn’t come in the mail before the party. Their customer service rep upgraded my shipping immediately for free to ensure it was delivered on time. The sign came out perfect and arrived days in advance!
