Yesterday, we celebrated my grandmother’s 85th birthday. It was a great day in Astoria. We kept it simple and ordered Greek food – which is always a treat –  and then chowed down on some “Baked by Melissa” cupcakes. YUM!

We didn’t do much except hang around and talk. It was nice to catch up with my crew. The kids kept themselves occupied while the adults talked about everything under the sun. Truly a relaxing Sunday.

I showed my aunt and cousin a little information about my upcoming China trip. They were both so excited for me. I still can’t believe it’s happening!

My mother – of course – brought out a few fun tricks for St. Patty’s Day! I immediately became her photography… for the blog.

Overall, my kind of weekend. With all the running around I do for my job, sometimes it just feels nice to stay grounded and at home with family.

Happy birthday Nanna!!!
