Today is my mom’s birthday.
Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love my Mom. My mom is the best mom in the whole wide world and I told her that, frequently. She was amazing, talented, generous, and just fun to be around. Mom and I loved to travel together, especially to Paris. We had a lovely week in Paris together earlier this spring, just walking around, talking and eating.
My mom died August 16, thirteen months after finding out she had pancreatic cancer. The past few weeks and months have been indescribably difficult.
Happy birthday, Mommy. I miss you tons.
