Happy Birthday!!

Today is my older brother Jesses Birthday as well as my moms!! So as I'm sure you can figure out, Jess was born on my moms birthday, how cool is that? Jess is 29, which is so freaken weird. Although we had our "outs" growing up because he felt the need to torture me relentlessly(haha, but no for real) I feel really lucky to have him as my brother. He has become the neatest guy and it's been so fun to watch him be a dad. It's seriously the cutest thing to see him with his baby girl, for being such a hard "a" he turns into the softest little teddy bear. Love you Jess!
Even though my mom is no longer here, I still feel the need to celebrate a little bit on her birthday. Birthdays were such a big deal to her, she made them so much fun!! I have made it somewhat of a tradition that on her birthday(since she's been gone)to hit two of her most very favorite spots, T.J Maxx and Maverick, ha. She seriously was obsessed with T.J Maxx and I'm pretty sure they knew her by name. Maverick was somewhere she stopped on a regular basis for their frozen yogurt and cheese bread... Every time we passed a Maverick she would put her hand over her heart, ha, funny stuff. Okay it's really late and I'm stupidly tired and I'm starting to ramble on so I'm gonna wrap this up I promise...I could go on and on and on with little stories about my mom, I miss her so much! I was trying to be positive today and think something that makes the situation a little lighter with her being gone and I came up with this, she will never have to become old! She passed away youthful and so beautiful, never having to go through the pains of old age! She will always be remembered as the vibrant and beautiful, fun Kathy! I love you so much mom! Happy Birthday!!

How special for him to share his birthday with your mom. It's just too bad to think of your mom having to go through labor on her birthday! Ahhh!

I'm remembering your awesome mom and this special day.
