Happy Birthday Mom!

Many of you know that my mother is my best friend, but you may not know how grateful and appreciative I am. It has not always been this way- typical of the intensity of the mother/daughter dynamic. This just makes it all the sweeter. We work very hard to communicate well and grow together: the reward is an extremely close connection that I treasure beyond definition. So today I send her my love and hopes for a wonderful birthday. I wish my brother, sister, and I weren't all scattered to the winds so we could celebrate her together. We all know how lucky we are for her honesty, artistry,wisdom, and her joi de vivre. She somehow seems younger than each of us and has always been way ahead of her time. Even though she has remained my silent partner in so many of my blog adventures (read anything in the category labeled barn!), I have a feeling that you get just how amazing she is. I'm sure some of you would enjoy an opportunity to wish her a Happy Birthday, too! Oh and that little scale, nestled in October 19th leaves? As she is a very classic Libra (zodiac sign represented by the scales), it seemed a fitting gift for her vintage industrial collection at the barn. Her other gifts aren't ready for show. Soon... Pin It

  2. That is so lovely that you have a wonderful relationship with your mom. Mine passed away when I was only 9 so I love hearing about other people's moms...I know how crazy that must sound!!

  3. Grace- doesn't sound crazy at all, just a beautiful and brave way to approach your loss at such a young age. My thank you from my mother (and me) is all the deeper... and bittersweet.

  14. My 3 year old whispered to me this week as I was putting her to bed "mommy you're my best friend." Not having that kind of relationship with my own mom, this post encourages me that this statement really can carry into adulthood reality
