Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday. I'm sending her birthday greetings on my blog because I think it's much cooler than a card. I hope she thinks so too.

This is a picture that I came across recently in a photo album. I absolutely LOVE it! It was taken in front of my grandparents' house in 1968. I was two years old. Mom is pregnant with my middle sis. Isn't she beautiful? (She's a blond now, but she's still really cute!) Dad is tall, dark and handsome. (Still is. Just imagine more gray and no side part!) My dad used to carry me everywhere so I wouldn't get my shoes dirty.
My mom is one talented lady. She designs and makes her own jewelry, she is a fantastic cook, her flower arrangements rival the local florists, she loves to fish and isn't afraid to bait her own hook, and her interior decorating skills would make Martha crawl away in shame. I inherited none of these skills. I'm still pretty angry with the DNA Fairy.

Mom, I hope your birthday is the best one ever! I have a special dinner planned for tomorrow night. Can't wait to celebrate with you!

I love you.

Holy cow - I think your mother has a twin out there and it's my mother. They look slightly different but your words otherwise described mine to a T. Scary.

Happy Birthday to Mom!

p.s. I did the same thing for Fathers Day this year, and my Father seemed exceedingly underwhelmed. I am sure your mother will love her tribute. It's beautiful.

Alright, just found your blog through Foolery. I see "Okay, where was I?" is here too. Love it.
I, too, posted a Happy Birthday to my mom on my blog, but it was because I forgot to buy her a card.
