Heritage, the first photo prompt for March. This is not a new photo. Not even one I took myself, but I played around with it in photoshop, cropping and turning to black and white.
This family all started with her. Grammy – who will be 100 years old in September. This photo is from her 95th birthday. As much as the family that could make it, gathered at Skytop in Pennsylvania, in August of 2010 to celebrate her. Now, five years later, we are trying to plan her 100th birthday celebration. Trying to figure out how to fly in her grandchildren and great grandchildren from all over the world so that we can do a huge celebration once again. Something that she can handle. She’s not as spry as she once was and her hearing is not great…although sometimes she hears a lot more than we think she does…
There is talk of a family cruise headed north towards Canada. Something that can leave from New Jersey so she doesn’t have to fly anywhere. Organizing more than forty people to get in one place at the same time won’t be easy, but it isn’t often that you turn 100!!!

Claire, you look adorable, of course!! But your Grammy is ridiculous! She is so beautiful. And so youthful. I would never, ever guess she was more than 80 years old in that photo. Really probably I’d guess 75. I am praying for her continued good health. She will keep shining on, I’m sure. I hope to see you at our (ha ha 27th) reunion. I think your blog is fabulous, and you are an inspiring, terrific person, clearly. Carolyn
Thanks Carolyn!! Are you going to go to the 27th reunion?? We are thinking about it. It will be fun seeing everyone….we should really push our classmates to go! It would be great to see you. Thanks for the kind words!!
