…hopefully a not-too-controversial title for a blog post about a fabulous weekend. celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday. my brother, my sister and I drove to florida to spend the weekend with my mom and dad. in addition to all the photos above, we took two before we left on monday and my mom liked them in front of the flag – a focal point in her family room – and, I think, a fitting tribute to what I like best about america…families, shared histories branching out to create new traditions, abundance, a solid work ethic, shared values and love. truly, these are the same things I love about my family. and I love them for it. thank you, mother (and daddy!) for the wonderful memories from this weekend…added on top of so many others!
