Today is my lovely mother’s birthday! I’m so excited that I’m home to celebrate with her for the first time in 5 years. We just got home from spending a week and a half driving to North Carolina and back, and I love that I got to spend time with her just relaxing, and playing, and driving half way across the country – because really when are just the two of us ever going to do that again? Happy Birthday Mom – I love you so very much. I am so blessed to have you as my mother.
