Last night we went to Grandma Huggie's 90th birthday party.


Grandma Huggie (Huggy? I still have no idea how we spell that...) is my mom's dear friend who everybody naturally loves. She is an extraordinary woman full of generosity and kindness and so much joy. I just love her and it was great to be invited to celebrate with her.

She was born in 1924 and so the party was (beautifully) 20's themed. There was some really awesome parked on the front lawn at the church, and balloons, and photos and family history and what Grandma called "food from the 20's bread & jam". (But not just any bread - it was delicious.) And the table decorations had boas and man-hats and fun party things. There was a small band playing music that had even me wanting to dance. It was a lovely event.

And then I sat down at the table to chat with my family (and stuff my face will delicious food) and I realized....if I threw a similar party when I turned 90, it would be an 80's party.

Suddenly the magic was over.


  1. Hahahaha! But your great-grandchildren will think it's so rad! :)

  2. I can't believe she's 90. So crazy.

  3. I just had the best laugh! You are SO funny! PLEASE come up and visit us for our Ward Christmas Party, it is 80s themed this year and should be VERY interesting! Ha ha ha!
