Themed Thursday - 1920

On Sunday my family will be getting together to celebrate my grandma’s NINETIETH Birthday!  She is such an amazing and inspiring lady.  My grandma, Grace (aka Mike – another story), is living on her home in the house her husband built that my mom grew up in with her 12 siblings.  Yup, my grandma had 13 children.  One of my favorite memories is when I told her that I was expecting my second child (now this was just about 9 months that I had my first) and she said to me “Well, it gets easier after the first five.”  Her mother died when she was a young child and the stories she tells are just incredible.  Grandma has never driven a day in her life and still makes the best chocolate chip cookies and rolls that I’ve ever had.

Here are some finds that are inspired by 1920, the year my “Grams” was born:
