Happy Birthday "Nonie"!


Today is my sweet maternal grandmother's 76th birthday! I call her "Nonie", and have been since I have started talking! But her real name is Lillian, and goes by Lilly by only my grandpa. If I ever have a daughter someday, I am wanting to name her after my grandma. I called her today to sing her happy birthday (hopefully I didn't sing too bad off key) She always enjoys all of her birthdays, every single year! In this picture, she is here with my grandpa, Bob and it was taken in April of 1954, about 14 months before they were married. She looks so beautiful, like a movie star...my mom always told me when Nonie was a young woman, she would wear her brightest of red lipstick, and her hair was short, but always styled so cute, chic, and classy, and had the most beautiful porcelain colored skin tone. Of course, I think she is still very beautiful only her face has carried the wisdom of her years. Hope you had a wonderful day, Nonie! I love you so very much! And here's to another 30 birthdays!
