Birthday Joy

Tomorrow my mother-in-law, Judy, celebrates a milestone birthday, and my last few weeks have been spent preparing a very special gift for her.  In early January I wrote to all her family and friends and asked them to send me memories, photos, and cards to compile into a surprise scrapbook.   And her family and friends came through with flying colors!  Along with other gifts we were able to give it to her today, and it was very special to see her react to 72 pages of special memories!

Each of us worked on special pages for her.

It was an awesome project, and I’m so happy to have the opportunity to honor Judy in this way.
