i heart you grandma audrey

today, valentine's day, would have been my grandma audrey's 92nd birthday. we lost her two years. i was just getting to know her as an adult. she came and spent a week at our house and i got to ask her questions about her life and questions about what my mom was like as a little girl. we made peach cobblers and apple pies. she played chess and checkers with my son and sat in the back yard and watched my girls swim(something she never learned to do). she caused a little bit of a scandal when at 15 she ran off to marry my grandfather who was ten years older and the trumpet player in a band! lately with wedding on the brain i've been thinking about how much i wish she could be there because i know that she would have enjoyed herself and danced her heart out. she had a fondness for prince. you haven't lived until you've seen you 80 year old grandma bust a move to prince's version of "kiss":) happy birthday grandma! i love you!!


  1. Happy Birthday Ms. Audrey!
