Happy Birthday BaBa!

Today is my husband's sweet grandmother's birthday. There are very few women I have known in my life that truly been the very essence of a "lady," and BaBa is just that. A Southern Belle at their finest. She could out-write Emily Post in a book on etiquette. She is always concerned with the well-being of others before herself and in my opinion, she should be treated like a queen. Having my family so far away, I have adopted Todd's family as if they were my own blood. We went to see her today on Todd's lunch and she was too concerned that Todd was taking off work to see her. It was cute. BaBa is a diabetic and being the domestic diva that I am, I tried my hand at a diabetic friendly pound cake. Of course, I had to give it a taste just to see if it was worth eating. It wasn't too bad. Of course it wasn't near as good as BaBa's cream cheese pound cake, but it was decent for a person that doesn't get sugar. Of course she loved it, but would she really tell me any different!? It turned out to be a pretty cake nonetheless. I only wish I could give my children and future generations the legacy that Mrs. Barbara Wilson has given her family. Happy Birthday BaBa! We love you!


  1. Thank you for loving on her so well..she loved your visit and your flowers. You are special to her as is Todd, of course!

  2. It's easy to do. I just love her to pieces! Enough to try to make a pound cake with no real sugar or cream cheese, and THAT'S A LOT!!! :)
