Happy Birthday Mom!

Today one of the sweetest, coolest, most caring and loving people on the planet was born.  54 years ago to be exact, although to look at her, you wouldn't think she was a day over 40! :-)  (Which would be impossible since I'm 30!) 

Anyway, I feel even closer to my Mom (if that's possible) now that I am a mother myself.  I'm always asking her things like "Did you freak out when I got pregnant?" or "How did you handle it when I moved out of the house?"  I ask her these things mostly because I CANNOT imagine Harper being a grown just seems like it will be so hard to let her go chase her dreams and start a family of her own and trust that she will be ok without us. But, my Mom did it with grace and has supported me through every step in life, so I know I will be able to!  Luckily, I've got a LONG way to go before that happens, although with as fast as time is flying, it will be here sooner than I want it to.

We celebrated Mom's birthday yesterday with some burgers, cocktails and Cowboys.  The food and company was GREAT...the Cowboys? Not so much. :-(  The two downers for the day were that it rained and we couldn't get in the pool and then of course the Cowboys losing was a bummer.  But, we had a fabulous time anyway!  Mimi had a great time loving on her granddaughter who was celebrating her 6 month birthday yesterday! 

Harper wore her fancy clothes just for Mimi!

 Mimi is so silly tickling Harper's back with her chin!

Also, another special person was born on this day too - Sweet Melissa! We love you and miss you and hope to see you again soon! XOXO
