A Day to Celebrate ... Not Solitate

My mom and I when I was 3 weeks old. 1976
These are just a few things that come to mind when I think of my mom:
Franklin planners / chicken and rice / Quincy / red / pansies / breakfast at Elmer's / at the birth of grandbabies / crochet / Red Rose tea / mother/daughter trips to the craft store / Volvo / amethyst ring / red chili enchiladas / pens, pens, and more pens / Moleskines / cone headed 'Dancing with the Stars' / green Jell-O alien eyes / colorful coffee cups / long phone calls / yellow macaroni and cheese spoon / true stories about stepped on white Keds and dogs who drive cars / Strand / Fossil wallets / three lovely daughters / Rosebud lip salve / making up cool words like "solitate" and "sneedling" / HGTV / perfect handwriting / B & R platter / a comfy bed for sick kids / The Shed / my friend / Mamaw
Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!

My mom and I in 2006. I had a cute kid of my own on his way when this was taken!

What a nice post! Thank you! All I can ask is what is going on with my bangs in that second picture - they seem to be sneedling up my forehead!

Your welcome, I hope it put a smile on your face! Perhaps I should have Photoshopped the bangs, but to be honest I didn't even notice. Nice use of the word sneedling by the way!
