90 looks good on you!

Guess what blog readers?

This weekend we're celebrating my Mimi's 90th birthday. In case you didn't know, turning 90 is the coolest! I'm pretty sure a person must be the creme of the genetic crop to healthily and happily turn 90 (score one for me, since I am my Mimi's clone). Our Mimi is the smartest, funniest lady around, and seriously does not act or look a day over 60. Just ask her to tell you a dirty joke! Right Mimi? (she and PopPop faithfully read this blog, so I'm having fun embarrassing them right now! Hi guys!).

I have had the absolute honor and privilege to have a close relationship with my grandparents all my life. I'm a better person because of them, and my Mimi teaches me every day that balance, eating well, moving your body, and keeping humor at the center of your life makes a huge difference in how you live your days. Oh, and a good glass of red wine doesn't hurt, either :).

Mimi with her first GREAT grandchild Leah! (she now has 10 greats, and one more on the way... building her own empire, apparently!)

We are all so excited to celebrate her birthday! Her kids and grandkids and greatgrandkids will be here from all over the country to party. We can't wait to all be together! In honor of Mimi's birthday, I'm posting one of her favorite songs. My cousin Lindsay posted this on FB and it brought back the best memories of Mimi singing this to us as kids! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIMI!


  1. Happy Birthday to Mimi! And for reals, do you guys have some superior genetics in your family or something? Because she absolutely doesn't look 90.

  2. Wow you are so right! 90 has certainly never looked or sounded so good. Happy belated birthday to your amazing grandmother! She looks amazing! And sounds like such an awesome person
