happy birthday madre.

Wishing my mom the happiest birthday ever today!  

Madre, you are the sweetest person I know and I love you so very much.  I love that I can call you at 6am and know that I won't be waking you, because you've already been awake for at least an hour.  I love our talks and can't say thank you enough for your caring words when I need them the most.  And can we please talk about your cooking?  You are amazing in the kitchen and I envy your skills.  G and I hope this day brings you much joy!  

And yes, this is a photo of me as a baby and my mom.  Everytime I look at it, I can't help but crack up.  My rolls, that oreo bikini, my mom's smile...it all makes me so happy!
