It's my mom's birthday this Friday, and she is turning......shhhhh......don't you know I can't tell you a woman's age? She is the best mom I've ever had :) She's always honest even though I didn't want to hear it, she's always been thoughtful with things I need and even want, she cooks good meals, is funny when she's had too much wine, and can tell you any medical answer you need to know. She raised six kids while her husband, my dad, worked all day to feed us, cloth us, and put us through college.
Another thing my mother did really well is sew. I remember her sewing me tons of outfits, Halloween costumes, and Sunday dresses. She even sewed the tent on the top of the fort our dad built us in the 1980's. Funny enough I didn't learn how to sew from her. I didn't learn till I was in college and living with my friend LeAnn, but she was so excited when I told her I was sewing that she gave me tons of old fabric from our childhood.
In ALL of these photos she is wearing an outfit she sewed. I don't sew much clothes but I love how stylish she was and how she made clothes even when she was pregnant. Happy Birthday Day MOM! You are truely an inspiration.
