Wordless Wednesday: Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday. I'm sure she would LOVE that I'm broadcasting that news all over the interwebz. But the truth is, if anyone deserves an over-the-top, outrageous, attention-showered day full of love, it would be this woman.
I could go on and on about how truly amazing my mom is.
We butted heads when I was younger, but only a little bit.
The whole time, even if I thought it might be cool to be the attitude-filled, rebellious teenager, I deep down had the ultimate respect for my mom. Plus, she's just a fun person to be around.
To this day, I remember her helping me host fun parties for me and my friends when we were in junior high and high school......the fun kind of parties where kids could be kids, with no pressure to be grown up or try things we weren't supposed to be trying. Our house was a safe place, and my mom always found ways to make it fun. I definitely think that's one of the biggest lessons I've learned from her; how easy it is to make life fun by celebrating the little things, by doing things that otherwise might seem silly. 
Today I hope to make my mom's day, just like she's done for me so many times before.
She's not an easy one to buy gifts for, and that's why I'm surprising her instead!
I've got a whole day planned for us, and I cannot wait to spend the afternoon with her. I only hope that my mom knows even a fraction of my love for her......which I'm pretty sure she does ;)
Happy Birthday mom!! I love you!

I've been snooping around for a little bit, I love your blog! And I love the tribute to your mommy. What would we do without them!? Hopefully our babies feel the same way when they are grown.
