My mom has a coffee mug that says "65 and it still works".
She's had it for almost 30 years, maybe more. I've never been entirely sure what it meant, but my sister and I certainly laughed when we were home this weekend drinking coffee out of it, about to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. We told her she's not to much further off!
As you can see I was in OH this past weekend. I drove 9 and a half hours home to throw my mom a sit down dinner party for her and 15 of her closest friends. Just a few family members and people that have known her almost her whole life were there.
It was a splendid evening! I think for the most part it went really well. I made a broccoli salad, carrot ginger soup over rice noodles and avocado chocolate mouse for desert.
I'll be posting more later on all of the preparation it took to pull this off, but really it was a magical evening and I was so glad that I could give my mom this gift.
I'm lucky to have such an amazing mother! Really blessed and I'm so happy to have been able to share the weekend with her.
My Hat Goes off to you Mom, I love you.
