How lovely! Thank you for sharing


What a great memory and picture!

And seriously, what better testimony to the cake's deliciousness than the single slice left on the plate?

What a great picture! You both look SO happy.


What a wonderful post, and a wonderful idea. My own Grammie is still kicking around at 89, and she's always been the cornerstone of our family (Dad's an only child, and Mom's mom died when she was a child). I vote we get rid of the phrase "extended family" and just use the word "family" and, as you say, give these wonderful folks the credit they deserve!

(And cake. One can never have enough cake.)


What a wonderful woman! You're so lucky, Maia, to have had such a great influence! The cake looks delicious, too, thanks!


Awwww. I love this. I am so grateful that my grandma is still with me and I adore her! She's a crocheter and she always encouraged me to do fiber.
