Inspiration – Celebrating 90 Years

  On Sunday we celebrated Zach’s grandmother’s 90th birthday.  Pretty incredible.  Zach’s mom had a brilliant idea of making a list of the 90 things we love about Grandma Jean.  She sent a request to family and close friends a couple of weeks before the celebration and got back great responses.  Some people actually listed things like, “her love of reading”,…
