For the past two years, we have made it a point to honor a special member of our family on her birthday by interviewing her and using her recipes to bake some fun treats (seen on our previous posts: 104 Chocolate Chip Cookies and 105 Candles) This year, we are extremely proud to announce that not only did our Great Grandma Mary turn 106 years old, but she was also featured in the LA Times for this great accomplishment.

Beverly Hills turned 100 years old last month. Check out this amazing article honoring Beverly Hills, its century, and the centenarians living within the city. We especially love the video of our very own Great Grandma Mary singing “God Bless America”:

This past weekend, our family got together to celebrate Great Grandma Mary’s birthday. She has two children, six grandchildren, over fifteen great grandchildren, and even a great great granddaughter (Ava), so needless to say there is never a shortage of people to celebrate with. We are pretty sure our Great Grandmother would forgo gifts for the chance to spend time with her family, but beautiful flowers are always fun too!
Small sentiments and heart-warming cards go a long way as well!
We all took a moment to sing Happy Birthday as the birthday girl blew out her candles (not 106 as we did not want to burn down the house) and to toast her with glasses of champagne. Cheers to Great Grandma Mary on this day (her birthday)! Here’s to another year of health, happiness, and inspiring all who she comes into contact with. She is an amazing woman, and we are proud to have her as the matriarch of our family!
