My Beautiful, Wonderful, Timeless Mother...

(I love this picture...they look like a couple of movie stars! This picture was taken by Alaina...a fantastic photographer)

So I just have to brag a little...today my mom is the big five zero! Yes, 50 years! And I believe everyone would agree...she doesn't look anywhere near her age! Most times when I am introducing her to someone...they are shocked...and their comment usually sounds like "WHAT??? Were you 13 when you had her?!!!" ...then I laugh and say..."She has three kids older then me!" And then she just blushes and smiles it off...like their just being nice...but it's true...she is still sooo young and beautiful! But I must also say...as beautiful and timeless as she is on the outside...she is also on the inside! My mom is seriously wonder woman! She is amazing...she is a fantastic listener...you could talk to her about anything! She's an incredible cook...can make anything out of anything...she also makes the most beautiful jewelry...and soooo much fun to watch chick flicks with! One of my favorite memories with my mother while growing up...were the mother daughter outings we would all have together when the boys would go camping. I remember just salivating as we'd plan our nights...typically they consisted of great food...a great chick flick and lots of laughing! So...like I was saying...I just wanted to brag a little about my beautiful, wonderful, timeless Mom...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
