Misao Okawa, who is the oldest living person in the world, celebrated her 117th birthday with her family, on the day before her actual birthday, according to Yahoo News.

Misao, who was born on March 5, 1898, apparently said that 117 years didn’t seem like such a long time… in fact, she wonders what the secret is to her long life as well!!

Misao was recognized as the oldest living person by the Guinness World Book of Records in 2013.

She now lives in a nursing home in Osaka, and while she has trouble with her hearing, she is able to eat well, and is in good health for her old age.

Good for her for living to see another year!
