The Happiest of Birthdays

As I said earlier, today is my mom's birthday. I won't spill the beans on which birthday it is but I will tell you that last year was a big one.

Over the past year my mom has been my sounding board, my support system, my champion and my best friend. She listened when I had crazy wedding ideas; supported us when we fell in love with the Behemoth; and helps me make every day better.

Mom, thank you for being my best friend. You and I have had more wonderful moments than I can count. Planning the wedding with you was more fun than I could have imagined. I am beyond grateful that I got to spend so much time with you over the past year.

You make me laugh and hug me when I cry. You support me in any endeavor I try, even if it is etching 150 wine bottles to use as pitchers at the wedding, and when I realized I was crazy you nodded and moved on.
Mom, I know you hate this picture but I love it because it shows how similar we are

Thank you for listening to me, for supporting me, and telling me how proud you are of me. I'm pretty proud to have such a genuine, kind, and beautiful mom.
I love my mom's face as she watches my dad & me dance

Thank you for everything you have done for Banan, Dad, Jus & me. You are a rockstar & we are lucky to have you in our lives.

Happy Birthday, Mom! 
I love you!
