It's my mom's birthday today. She is the BEST. We love her. To celebrate, we made her a cake and decorated it in just the adorablest way you could imagine. I went through ye olde journal, found some good gems, rolled them and inserted them into little balloons and had ourselves a jolly good time. Happy birthday to YOU, Mom.

poured warm water over it and I just pulled my mouth off. It hurt like a
badger. Thanks for all the warm water you’ve
poured over hurts throughout the years, Mom.
