Today is my wonderful Mother’s birthday! The above picture is an old one from a trip to New York. I really wanted to use a picture of us drinking from those giant boozy slushies in Las Vegas but my Mom didn’t think that was a good idea. Anyway, we will be celebrating her birthday this weekend with a little trip to Vancouver with my sister. There will be lots of shopping, a celebratory dinner (or two) and of course some wine! When it comes to Mothers, I really hit the jackpot. My Mom is my role model, my confidant, and my friend. I am thankful everyday to have her in my life and I can’t wait to spend the weekend celebrating with her!
