Happy Birthday Taita!

Today, my beautiful grandmother turned 70. The whole family gathered together from out of town to celebrate this special birthday for her in Garden City. She has been such a tremendous influence in my life; the one I always go to when I'm upset and the person I share secrets with that no one else knows.  She is the woman that has kept our family together- and the one that shares her wonderful mediterranean recipes on my blog. I am so proud to be related to her and I hope this year is only better than any of her previous years. I love you taita! Happy birthday!!
