The happiest birthday

As I stated, yesterday, it was my mom's birthday!  Happy birthday, again, to her:)  She's so great; the best kind of mom.  Anyway, we celebrated all day.  I was able to take off most of work so I could participate in the festivities.  Every meal was good and the company at each was even better.  Last night we went to Magleby's in honor of the birthday girl. I had a new photog, DANNY, take these!  It was fun to have him take the pictures:) though, I got back into my awkward "what do I do with my hands" sort of ways [not that I had fully grown out of that stage, but I definitely took some steps back!].  Again, with the weather.  Ugh.  Whatever.  Here, on MAY FIRST, I'm wearing a basic hi-low, v-neck sweater paired with my new favorite leather-like pants, booties and a wool jacket.  I just need to learn to embrace it because, come July, I'll be longing for boots, coats and scarves.  Oh, and sorry these pictures are a little fuzzy.  It was pretty dark when we were finally able to take them, it was around eight thirty.  I brightened and lightened them up a bit on my computer.
