Abiba


Today is my Abiba's 75th birthday. The love that I have for my grandmother is indescribable. She is the most intelligent, classy, strong, inspiring, independent, loving, stubborn and selfless person I know. In my almost twenty-nine years of life, she has taught me a lifetime of lessons...lessons that have molded and shaped the woman I have become and will, no doubt, be passed on to my own children.

Wil and I had originally wanted to get married today. I would've loved to honor my grandmother's birthday by starting my new family on June 18th. We decided that planning a wedding in six months was too crazy and opted to get married on my birthday instead. Today, we will celebrate...and I'm bringing my camera. 

I love you, Abiba. You are so beautiful to me.

@ Jennifer: Yeah, I wanted to make things easier for Wil, so I asked if we could get married on my birthday. I told him if he forgets my birthday AND our anniversary, I'll divorce him!

@ Leonela: Happy birthday to your grandma!
