Happy Birthday, Mom!

Good morning! It's a chilly but gorgeous morning here in So Cal. But what truly makes today special is that it is my amazing mom's birthday. Therefore, I am going to take the opportunity to brag on my mom a little bit today. :)

My mom has always been my biggest cheerleader. Whenever something wonderful is happening, she's there. When I'm wallowing, she's a comfy should to cry on. When I need to orally process every detail of my life, I know my mom is only a phone call away. She gives the most amazing, practical advice when my head is in a tizzy. My mom is beautiful, inside and out. She's one of the most organized people I have ever known (maybe that's where I get it from... hmmm...). She makes the absolute best chicken noodle soup with matzo balls, and while we're talking about food, let's throw latkes in there, too. :) She's a fellow bookaholic and has great book recommendations! I know she's always up for a run to Cantor's, or a trip to the ballet, or a Josh Groban concert. My mom has been an amazing example of God's love in my life, and I consider myself one of the most blessed people every single day to get to call her my mom.

So, Happy Birthday, Mom! This card's in the mail on it's way to you. ;)

Have a beautiful Sunday. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. WHat a beautiful card.............just as beautiful as your wonderful words about your mom!

  2. Your wonderful words will melt her heart, Kristina! To be appreciated for all you pour into your child's life is the best blessing a mom can ever have (my kids are young and when they do that it melts me, and an adult child saying it packs all the more punch!). Makes me want to give your mom a hug :)

    Your card is lovely! Great mix of DPs (I took the easy way out and when white on white LOL!). Lovely flash of PTI and a great use of this sketch. Have a great week.

  3. Oh Munch. You've got me in tears here sitting in my office. I love you!!!!!!
