Celebrating BIG...

I'm still here. Still puttering around nonstop. Oh the busyness of it all.

I've missed my bloggy world and all the encouragement I find here, but family, health and work do come first.

This is a week of celebration for my family.

This week, on my side of the family my dear great Aunt Fay turns 100.
100 YEARS PEOPLE!!!

Oh the things she has seen and lived through with stories to tell. She really is a special person and very loved by her family.

This past weekend, my family had a big shindig in her honor. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend. Keeping pretty close to home these days until my surgery. But according to my mom, she enjoyed the day, surrounded by those that love her.

Just so you could see how beautiful 100 can be, I swiped a picture from my sister's album from the party.




And if that wasn't grand enough, I mean how many people can say they have an aunt who is 100? Not many, I am guessing. Anyhow, my in-laws are celebrating their wedding anniversary this week, and it is a BIG one. Drum roll please.....


50 YEARS!!!


I'm just thinking that in today's world, that is something to celebrate. I can only pray that God sees fit to allow me the blessing of being with my honey that long and more.

Happy Anniversary, Grandma and Papa! Love you guys oodles and oodles!



I know I have been scarce these days, but life has been on the busy side. There is work, church, getting the kiddos ready to start school next week, preparing for surgery next week and planning an anniversary reception for my in-laws. Hopefully, in the days ahead I can find time to "catch up."
Hope you are having a wonderful week...

Mich,

I think its wonderful that you have a centurian in your family. Here's hoping that you can interview her and capture some of best memories to be shared with your family. The stories they can tell are better than books.

Missing you like always!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Beautiful post. 100 years young and a 50th anniversary. Both are amazing milestones!

I hope you're feeling okay. Life was busy for everyone this summer. My blogging time was cut too!

Have a great week!

100 years...wow...the wisdom that is wrapped up in her life.

Congrats to your grandparents for 50 years...that's quite the accomplishment these days. When my grandparents passed away they had been married 63 years...that still just amazes me. We are very blessed to be from that heritage. Love these pictures...reminds me of my family.

I am praying for your surgery!!
