She turned 57. Photo taken on her birthday, Aug 27, Rockwell.
No airbrushing. Never had botox (or other procedure).
Just beautiful makeup by Baden, good genes, and positive attitude.
Taken the day after, Aug 28, at the park.
Birthday dinner at Chili's with D and A.
We went to the Urban Bazaar after dinner and then to Crepes and Cream for dessert.
I grew up very impressed with Mom's grades & achievements.
Her photos always showed her with ribbons and medals pinned on her chest.
She's very talented, too. She could play the guitar. She could write beautifully.
She loves action movies. She prefers rock over ballads. She loves to sing and dance.
Above all, I am in awe of her big heart.
She's very generous and forgiving. She loves unceasingly.
She's beautiful and strong and fun and crazy and awesome in major major ways (LOL).
Happy Birthday, Mommy!
