A very special day

I give October the highest of accolades for many reasons we've discussed on this blog before: boot and sweater weather, colorful leaves, Halloween, my birthday, and last but certainly not least, it's my mother's birthday as well.

Today I'd like to wish a very happy birthday to my beautiful mother, Terri!

This is the internet, so I won't advertise your age, but please know that you don't look a day over 10 years younger than your actual age. :)

For my entire life you've made every single one of my birthdays special and memorable (I still remember the birthday party you organized for me in the basement when I was in kindergarten and all of my classmates and I played that game where you place a balloon between two people and hug until it pops!), and I wish nothing but the best for you on your own special day. 

I love you, Mom, and happy birthday!

I love sharing a birthday month with you!
