I’m cheating.

Today we celebrated my wonderful grandfather’s 80th birthday! Happy Birthday Grandpa!

(ps. How great is he looking for 80!?! I hope I can have that much life and energy in me ever!)

Now, I didn’t technically take any pictures at this event. To me, it felt like one of those moments you just can’t do justice to in a photograph. Like watching the winding trail of lights slowly trickling up Mount Fuji last summer, watching his smiling face beaming as we surprised him with a stack of thirty-or-so birthday cards was one of those happy moments I’ll have with me forever. Let’s just say there were lots of smiles all around — including my adorable grandmother!
