February is a very special month in the Shaw family- besides the wonderful excuse to decorate with glitter and hearts and devour sugar cookies and chocolates - it is the month of my mom's, my brother's and my birthday! With our birthdays and valentines all in one short month, February has become one of the most love filled and festive times of the year for us.
This upcoming weekend my mom and I will both be celebrating our birthdays- mine on feb 11 and hers on feb 12. Naturally we have shared many birthday cakes, balloons, parties, and even presents and have always taken full advantage of celebrating our Birthdays as more of an event rather than limiting ourselves to only one day each.
I have many fond memories of special birthday celebrations - a family trip to seaworld, a surprise limo ride around atlanta with all my preteen girl friends, a Mexican fiesta, a girls trip skiing at a Christmas tree farm, and one of my personal favs clubbing in Atlanta with my mom for my 21st and her 50th (oh yeah!).
So here's to us mom- and a big happy birthday to you! Thank you for bringing me into this world and sharing your special day with me each year. Thank you for being my best friend, the voice in my head, and my roommate. Thank you for all the years of advice and love you have given me, for the cooking secrets, sense of humor, and love of children that you have passed down, and for all the wonderful birthday parties, presents, and memories you have given me over the years.
Happy birthday to you my sweet mom! May your day be filled with all of the love and joy that you deserve.
... And may mine be filled with presents and cake :)
