happy birthday to the woman who can stand in front of thousands and sing the national anthem. happy birthday to the woman who kisses the clock on 11:11 and taps it saying "diiiing". happy birthday to the woman who would lay a cozy blanket on our family room floor and let us have picnic dinners growing up.  happy birthday to the woman who helped me get my nervous self ready for my very first dance [class night!] and took me to get my hair done. happy birthday to the woman who wrote a song [with the help of my talented brother!] for austin and my wedding.  happy birthday to the woman i can call or text or email [sometimes all three if i'm feeling particularly damsel in distressy] at all hours of the day  ;)  happy birthday to one of the most creative and witty people i know! [years and years of examples right here] happy birthday to the woman who showed us how love and marriage and teamwork go hand in hand.  happy birthday to a woman who is so super stylish and can still fit into her wedding dress thirty five years later.  happy birthday to the woman who is silly and makes me laugh so much.  happy birthday to the woman who loves her family unconditionally and is everyone's cheerleader. happy birthday to my best friend, my mom! for all this and a lifetime of more, you make our lives great and i am so proud to be yours! we love you so much!
