St. Patrick’s Day symbolizes Irish traditions and wearing green to most of our western population. To me… It also represents mom’s birthday! I’ve always found it quite astonishing that mom was born on St. Patrick’s Day (thus her name selection), her brother was born on Halloween, and her dad on St.Valentine’s Day.

Mom was thrilled to have my brother Mark, and I (and my husband Mark) all visiting on her birthday. We kept her celebration quite small this year, but she was surprised when many of her closest friends dropped by.

Smiles, stories, and awesome food were shared. Happy birthday mom! We love you!
