I’ve spent the last few days road-tripping with my mom. Monday was my grandmother’s 84th birthday, so Mom and I made a quick trip to IL to spend time with her and celebrate. Here she is with her cake!
Prior to enjoying dinner and cake at the Bar-B-Q Barn (the BEST place for barbecue in Southern IL), we spent time reconnecting with a few dear friends and family.
Here is Mimi (my grandmother) and I with our sweet new cousin Evie. She was born on 4-4-14! Just over a week old here. What a treat to meet her and catch up with her momma, whom I’ve shared many fond childhood memories with.
I’m so thankful for the time we all shared together and look forward to my next trip back to visit again…
