Happy Birthday to my friend, Sara!


My sweet "Illinois Mom" had a milestone birthday yesterday. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures to share. I take a lot of pictures, but for some reason, I don't have any of her. I didn't want this occasion to pass without highlighting some of the great memories we've made together (even with the lack of photos.)

  • We have baked cookies and other assorted goodies together at Christmas
  • We laugh together...a LOT
  • We drove to Chicago to shop, eat, and to see a one man show
  • We took cooking classes together
  • We planned a wedding together
  • We have spent much time talking about our lives with one another
  • We are in a book club together
  • We used to work together...before she retired
  • She planned a trip to see both of her daughters after she retired and I excitedly listened to the details
  • She has three beautiful grandchildren and I love hearing stories about them and seeing their pictures
  • She has two daughters, who I don't know personally, yet I feel like I know them because of everything she has told me
  • She loves to garden and has the most beautiful yard....I don't garden and have a black thumb, but I love looking at hers!
Happy Birthday, Sara! You are a lovely lady and a wonderful friend. May you have many more birthdays...I pray we make many more memories together!
