Happy Birthday

Today my Mom would have turned a year older (or should I say a year younger). We would have had a nice Italian dinner complete with waiters loudly singing Happy Birthday and holding a yummy slice of chocolate cake or key lime pie. After blowing out the candles she would have opened gifts including the newest Fiestaware or her latest perfume obsession. We would have laughed, sipped our "fancy drinks" and talked about this week's vintage find. She would have also been embarrassed, yet secretly giddy, about her baby photograph being posted on Please Sir!

I miss my Mom so much, but I know she is having a wonderful birthday above. Happy Birthday Mom!

my mom died in 1985 when i was 16. even after all this time i miss her immensely - especially on her birthday. some years are easier than others but every year i am grateful that i had such an amazing mom, as i'm sure yours was.

That is a very cute picture. I'm thinking of you on this day. I have had my late fathers birthday slowly approaching, it's now 3 days away and I'm not sure how I will feel on that day.
