Happy Birthday Granny!

One of the foundations in my life turned 100 years old today! I remember us singing Ray Charles songs as a kid, calling her to remind her her favorite show, The Equalizer was about to start, and her still to this day, less than five minute phone calls.

She's as hard headed as me, and I think about her all the time.
Love my granny and I'm so proud to be her granddaughter.

Here is to more time talking with her and hearing her laugh. :)

Happy birthday Marie Smith.
