Happy Birthday!

Don’t masquerade with the guy in shade, oh no-
I can’t believe it.”

Gift for Granma

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one is for my grandmother; her birthday is august 19th.

She is the cutest, nicest lady and her favorite color is teal.  I tried to wrap it in a way that is congruous to her style.  I’m happy with it, however simple it may be.

I felt particularly obligated to give her a gift this year.  Since I’ve moved away for college, she regularly sends me cards with cute little updates of the goings-on of the family in this harshly slanted classic cursive I can hardly read.  I, of course, write her back in my own jagged scrawl.  It’s a very simple, though fantastic back and forth.

Something else- upon missing her birthday last year, I was unable to bake her a cake as I had consistently done the previous years.  A carrot cake from scratch.  I still have a scar on an index finger of mine from grating carrots one year for it.  Quite the intimidating war story, let me tell you.  This year, I made a point to set up going back to Philly to get that cake to her.

And if i haven’t ranted enough: I recently started growing carrots (for no conscious reason).  If that goes well I’ll have to use them for her cake next year.  If only I had planted them a bit earlier..

I’m so excited!
